Home for the holidays

13 12 2022

Baked dozens of cookies, trimmed the tree, sang carols of joy in choir, and started wrapping gifts.

Now DH, JJ and I are enjoying some quiet days until Christmas morning when we’ll call on Mom Ivalee and hanai sister Ruth, and neighbors later in the day. 

Our kids and moʻopuna have plans to be in California with their other grandparents, so we’ll celebrate Christmas with them in January.

Oops! I almost forgot—that means Massimo, a.k.a. Trouble, will be at our house for the holidays!

Have a Merry Christmas, studio fans! Be well.


The twelfth day of Christmas

Mister Snowman and Rudolph

We let these two stay up until the twelfth day of Christmas. Rudolph has turned off his shiny nose until next year. I mua! Onward!

Waiting for Christmas eve . . .

. . . DH, Alice Brown and I are continuing the tradition of having dinner and exchanging gifts on Christmas Eve at Miss Marvelous’s house down the road — with her Mom and Dad, her Tutu who she baked cookies with today, and our sometimes-guest-dog Pua. We’ll be savoring the moments and cherishing the memories because Christmas Eve most likely will not be exactly like this next year.

It’s month-old Perrin’s first Christmas. She finally has a birth certificate, that means she can file for her passport and visa so she and her family can move to Naples, Italy, where Dad will work for three years, and then they’ll come home. I think Pua will be joining us on a daily basis at the studio rather than make the trip to Europe.

Before we head out for the evening, all of us at the studio, including Ula the ageless cat, wish you a blessed Christmas full of love and peace and the wonderment of children.  Mele Kalikimaka! ~ Rebekah
