Whirlwind of a Week

WOW! This one word wraps up the last week or so of our lives...Our trip to Hawaii was more than awesome! We found ourselves exclaiming "WOW!" on more than one occasion. Take a look at this seldomly occurring waterspout that took place during a storm last Sunday morning while we were in Kona, HI. That yacht in the left hand corner of the picture was about 1 mile from our condo on the beach! (Luckily, we were en route to another destination spot on the island at the time!)

And that was just ONE of the amazing "WOW's" from our trip! (Someone else took this picture, but I will be posting some pictures very soon as I am trying to learn to download the pics from the new camera I got for Christmas right before we left for The Big Island.) We arrived back home on Wednesday afternoon and things have been nothing short of a whirlwind around here! We hosted Christmas Eve dinner with Jan's family, then Santa came the next morning! (Pictures later!:-)) Then it was on to my mom's for Christmas that night and another bunch of Jan's family at our house tonight! Tomorrow will mark the end of our Christmas celebrations with family as we have two more gatherings to attend! WHEW! I love this time of year eventhough it does make for some fussy little people with schedules thrown off and bed times pushed back...way, way back! Nevertheless, I hope everyone had the merriest Christmas ever and that you have the happiest of new years in 2010!

Maybe you have a pull on nature :) Remember, we had that waterspout at the beach this summer on the day ya'll arrived. It was right over by our condos.
