Christmas Bounty

I hope everyone had as wonderful a Christmas as I did. After we woke up (around 11) we opened our gifts leisurely. It took over 2 hours, but I love just being together as a family and rejoicing in all the wonderful presents my loved ones received. I thought I'd gotten all my big presents before we went on  vacation, but my husband surprised me with one more gorgeous one - these earrings:

I had hinted broadly that I wanted them, but I never thought he would remember them, track them down, purchase them, and bring them to Hawaii. They are by far my favorite gift this year, although I received a bunch of other wonderful presents. After we ate our traditional Christmas breakfast (eggs in a nest, aka fried eggs in a "nest" of toast) we headed down to the beach to soak up the warmth.

We spent the afternoon lounging around and playing with our presents. Dinner was at a nearby hotel, since I couldn't exactly make a traditional Christmas dinner in our condo. One of the best Christmases ever!


  1. You have a beautiful space, my best wishes for these dates as indicated
    and for the new year arrives that your wishes are met
    Happy New Year 2012!.
    A hug.

  2. Sounds like you are having a fab time! I love your earrings!
