Merry Christmas

Or "Mele Kalikimaka" as they say here in Hawaii. Christmas festivities began last night with a couple Christmas Eve dinners. I swear I ate so much food! But I guess that's just part of the holiday season. The night sky was clear with an infinite number of stars. Accompied by wonderful people and delicious food it was a fun night.

That being said I went to bed late and couldn't sleep past 7am so this post is really the last thing before I get to bed. I wasn't able to nap like the rest of the household so I'm pretty exhausted.

After waking, I made coffee and waited for the others to wake up. We ended opening stockings and gifts around 9am. I felt like it was the latest Christmas morning ever! Anyway, I didn't get anything super exciting. My gift was already given to me as I am so happy and grateful to be home for te holidays. I've never been so happy to be on Maui than I am now. Strange what distance does to your feelings. I did like some comfy, soft socks I got. My feet I always cold and it doesn't bother me but I know it isn't a good thing:/

After that we had breakfast. Later we tried to go to the beach but it was fairly windy and beaches are crowded here on Christmas. Surprising as I haven't been around on Christmas foe awhile. But the weather was gorgeous so why not? So I didn't get to dip in te ocean but it was nice being out and about.

Gave up on the beach so we got food and goodies and came home. Enjoyed a drink and relaxed here. In the evening I made eggnog and a simple dinner. The day wasn't fancy or particularly exciting but I was so happy:)

Alright, I'm off to bed. Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!!!
