The Hart Family had a very nice, relaxing Christmas Eve and Christmas Day...I don't know why we are all so tired today! ;) We spent Christmas Eve day on our new favorite beach, Papa'iloa Beach. We saw lots of crabs (including the 6 yr old variety). They were out in full force that day. CRH and Eve caught one and played with him in bucket until we left (and released him). We came home, made sugar cookies, opened a present, and got ready for Santa.
Yesterday, we got up at 7am (I'm very surprised to report that I was the first one up!) and saw all the goodies that Santa had left. CRH's cousin, Ben, came over and hung out with us and we opened all the rest of the loot! (Thanks everyone for our new stuff!!) Santa was very good to us this year. We got a new waterproof camera, books, movies, towels, jewelry, tons of toys, clothes, gift cards, and some cash! We then preceded to eat, drink, and play ALL day. Eve got a helicopter that flies and cars to race and she, CRH, and Ben had a ball playing with those! I had planned our food and beverages meticulously and CRH executed it all perfectly.
In the afternoon, our friend Jordan came over for Christmas dinner (although he was raised Jewish). He's a fantastic photographer (www.freshphotohawaii.com) and took some family pictures of us.
