I'm leaving the islands and I will no longer be a resident of Hawaii. That's hard to say. The 3 little ones and I (with my mom) are flying out tonight and Jason and Ethan will follow in a couple of weeks. So long Hawaii...for now. I'm sure we'll be back to visit. What a journey it has been. Good-bye dear friends. We will miss you most!
St. Louis here we come...and the adventure continues...stay tuned!

I can not believe our little Lainey-Lu is 1 today! It was kind of a busy day so we squeezed in a little party for her during lunch time. I didn't even get a chance to get her last picture by the bear to finish out all 12 months...maybe tomorrow. Things are a bit crazy here with packing, purging and saying our goodbyes. So as things settle down and I can get pictures from my moms camera (she's been taking a bunch of good ones) it might be a bit sparse on here. But here is what I got of Lainey's party.
I set her cupcake down in front of her and she dove right in.

Jude has been teaching Ansley the art of Lego making... specifically Star Wars aircraft. Ansley has caught on and I find them these days enjoying Lego's together.

The kid's neighbor friend was over the other day and they were all sitting around having a pretend tea party with their fake plastic food...Jude is such a good sport. Well I thought it would be fun to get out the porcelain Hummel set I got at the thrift store (for a $1) and have a real tea party. Not sure why I didn't move it to the table but it all worked out, even though it was on the floor. We had pineapple tea and chocolate teddy grahams. Can't wait to have more tea parties in the future!
Right when I said Jude smile for the picture, he turned to me and said "mom, I can see the bears belly button." And this is how boys do tea parties.

We're trying to squeeze in as much beach time as we can these days. My kids never tire of it and Lainey is just getting to the age where she's really starting to enjoy it. We had a playdate with a bunch of friends from church. My friend Ashely took these great pics because as always I didn't bring my camera. Thanks Ashley!
I still want to post our pics from Saturday night when my mom and the kiddo's and I went to the beach to watch the rise of the "supermoon" over the ocean. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!
