Double Digits! 1-0

Miriam at about a year

It's hard to believe that my little baby is growing up so fast.  We love her so much and can't imagine life without her.  Miriam is so sweet.  She is so even tempered, kind, and helpful.  She keeps Jesse company on hikes and kayak trips while we wait for Gwyn to get bigger.  She loves her sister and is intensely protective of her.  She is probably the best older sister ever. 

We love and hate that she is growing up.  It's bittersweet to realize she won't be ours forever.

We love you Miriam.  Thanks for letting us be your family.

June's Fabric

This is my favorite place in Kalihi.  Ok, so Kalihi isn't on my top ten places to visit, but June's Fabrics is!  Cotton Poly blends start at 3.50 a yard.  100% cotton is 5.50 a yard.  I stocked up on fabric for muumuus, skirts, a shirt for Jesse, and lots of fun projects to be decided.

I was a pretty upset when I thought that they might have closed since they are no longer at their school street location.  (Yikes!  When I asked, they said they moved 5 years ago!)  I found them next to Kaiulani Elementary school on Austin Lane.  Jesse might freak, but I kind of want to go back and get even more!!  Or, we can just come back to Hawaii more often.  Hmm.  I like that one better.
If you are planning to go:

Happy Birthday Jesse!

So glad you were born.  So glad you married me.  So glad we have two great kids.  Hope your birthday was Awesome!

Heavenly Seven

Our baby girl just turned seven.  Can you believe it?  I can't imagine our lives without her.  Who would we play boardgames with?  Who would make us get shave ice?  Who would play with Miriam?  

We love her sassy spirit.  We love her salty looks.  We love that she lets us know that our idea of fun is not everyones.  We love that she keeps us social with her playmate demands and insider knowledge of everyone on the block.  

We love you G-wyn.  Love your smile.  Love your hugs.  Love your mafioso kisses (one on each cheek while grabbing your face.)  Thanks for letting us be your family.
