My Daughter and I have been in Kona, Hawaii since Dec 10th!
I grew up on Oahu and moved away when I started college. The last time I celebrated Christmas with my mom was in 1995 (I think). So, this is my daughter's first Christmas in Hawaii with her Gramma and Papa! She's a very lucky girl to have been to Hawaii before, just not for Christmas.
Here she is at the Airport getting ready to leave the cold and nasty East Coast weather for the warm Hawaiian sunshine! It's a long trip to the West coast and then on to the islands, but once you get there, it's so worth it!
