I asked my sister in law, Mariko to take some pictures of us since we don't really have any. If any of you are familiar with her blog(s) you know she takes some really great pictures. Not that I would chose a posed picture, or a "perfect" picture, but these were about as good as it got in that shoot. Thanks Mariko. Don't take our inability to take a good picture together personally.

We spent this morning at Taj's (and Coach Micah's) first basketball game at Laie Park. It was hot and tricky to get pictures, watch Taj and take care of the girls even with Nana and Poppop there. When it was all said and done we had a great time. There was such a great feeling there watching all the supportive family cheering for these cute kids who were playing their version of basketball and having fun.
After the game we all cooled off at the pool (postgame tradition for sure. Feel free to join us.) After we got the girls settled in for a nap Micah and I got to go surfing- We LOVE you Nana! It was so needed today for some reason. I think being one of the Moms cheering at Laie Park made me feel old (in a good way). The surf with my boyfriend kind of put things back into place. It was a great day.

*Micah's parents are in town! This means entertainment for the kids, extra arms, and BABYSITTING! Micah and I went on a date surfing at Goats today. The surf was tiny (perfect for wimpy me), and it was cold and pouring. It was perfect. The water was glassy. No one was out but us. The water felt warm compared to the cold air. The fresh rain water tastes so good after a little salt water. The hot shower at home was amazing. Yup. My in-laws are awesome.

New years eve wasn't too exciting. Even though I grew up in Laie, I don't get into New Years too much. I never liked the noise and smoke much. We did a few flowers, eye balls, morning glories, and tanks and then turned in by 9:30. It was perfect.
As for the new year, I've never been able to make and keep any resolutions. I think I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to be told when to start a goal. I have to be the one to say when it's time. There's that and that I quit most things I start. This year I plan to be more healthy. Fewer sugary snacky things (except for tonight. Mariko, you know what I'm talking about).
Olivia has grown up tons in the last week. She's liking rice cereal and thinks that all food should be grabbed and pulled into her mouth. This method of grabbing and pulling has gotten her banana which she LOVES. She's also rolling over and making farty/ spitty sounds and playing peek-a-boo. She loves to go for walks, facing outward of coarse. She has a smile that melts me and a laugh I spend hours trying to get.
2010 was a great year for us. I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for me and my family.
