(new sunglasses i got for reis!)

this year was the first christmas EVER that i wasn’t home in southern california.  i was sad to miss out on traditions with friends and family on the mainland and it did feel a little weird to be at the beach on christmas eve (not that socal screams winter wonderland exactly…), but i am so glad my family was able to come here to spend the holiday with me.  we stayed in a condo at turtle bay all weekend and it was so nice to get out of honolulu and bum around with no work!  i am even more grateful for the true meaning of Christmas and the reason we celebrate it at all: Christ!   christmas day we went to church in the morning, spent the entire day relaxing and watching christmas movies, had a delicious turkey dinner at reis’ parent’s house, ate dessert around a bonfire, and ended the night watching Elf.
