we hung out at the beach the day after christmas — the boys surfed, and i read/napped. my mother, on the other hand, isn’t the greatest “relaxer” (and isn’t exactly a beach person either, i mean, check out what she wears to the beach!) and brought paperwork to do! my family caught the red-eye out of honolulu on monday and reis and i will be joining them in LA this morning! my dad surprised us a few weeks ago with tickets to LA for new year’s! my sister and brother-in-law are flying in from Texas so we will finally ALL be together again (reis hasn’t been to california in over a year)! we’ve got lots planned for this weekend (including celebrating christmas #2) and i am so so excited. i hope you all have a wonderful and safe new year’s eve! see you in 2012!
