Reflections........



This weekend was full of reflecting, relaxing and remembering.......On Saturday while Tony, Uncle Raymond and the "boys" were away in Hilo for Anton's rugby game, I had the chance to sleep in, eat breakfast in my pajamas with Ephraim, Fou & Tony and enjoy the cool breezes and sunrise over Hualalai as we sat on our back patio that overlooks the ocean...
we got ready and went to watch the Hannah Montana movie that was just GREAT! I haven't really been a Miley Cyrus fan........till now! Her new movie was definitely worth taking my kids to see and also had me reminiscing about my childhood years growing up and how important FAMILY really is and knowing & remembering where you came from!

After the boys came home, we ended our day throwing some Steaks and potatoes on the grill with steamed veggies, and since we have started gathering together around our dinner table to sit & eat our meals instead of everyone sitting where they want to sit, it's been absolutely entertaining!! Our kids have stories after stories to tell, and while we're eating we talk about upcoming family events, and it simply brings our family closer together! After dinner we watched a very good movie with our family......."FAITH.......LIKE POTATOES" which was very inspiring, motivating and uplifting!!

The kids woke us up by crawling in our bed. EASTER SUNDAY........we attended our church meetings and remembered the Antonement & Sacrifice of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. We wanted to keep the true spirit of Easter alive throughout the day so as we enjoyed our dinner (pork roast with gravy, steamed zuchinni & carrots, bread & butter and fresh papaya and tangelo's, caramel brownie cups and chocolate devil's food cake with home-made frosting & chocolate chips... Fou's new developed talent in baking!! Great job Foufou! and we watched a church movie then had an awesome Family Home Evening!! I'm loving these times we spend as "family." and especially while the kids are still young....
