We got home today, and it is so good to be here. We had a wonderful time though, and I'm so thankful that we were able to take our vacation. Maui was wonderful, like I said in my previous post. It was such a romantic place to go and I couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. We've been married for 4 years, but couldn't afford one before now, and it was well worth the wait. Here are some of the pictures from our trip. I took about a million, and I had a hard time narrowing it down, but at last I succeeded. We did one scheduled activity each full day we were there and the rest of the time we just went on our own just sightseeing. The first day was the luau, the second was snorkling, third was the helicopter ride and the last day was the submarine ride. The pictures of snorkling will have to come later because I have to scan those pictures on here. We also drove the Hana Hwy, it's 52 miles long but takes about 2 hrs one way driving because it has something like 623 turns and 52 one lane bridges. It's crazy, but has such beautiful views. The last day we were there we drove the top of Mt Haleakala and watched the sunset. Such magic. I was sad to see it end, but so happy we got to experience it together. It was just perfect for the ending of such a long year.

We made it back Tuesday morning. We had an amazing time in Maui. It's so beautiful there and it was just what the dr ordered after such a long year. We're at my parent's house right now, so I can't put pictures up yet, but we'll be going home next week and I'll update with pictures. It was such a good vacation/honeymoon and I'm so thankful that Eric's home with me again. Thanksgiving went well too, we went to my aunt's house and stayed a couple night's where they live. The only bad thing about that was we stayed with one of my cousin's and his wife is such a witch. She's one of those people who think they're better than everybody. When we came over she didn't say hi or anything then went to bed about 5 minutes later. The next morning she was banging pots and pans around (we took it as a hint she wanted us up and gone, so we happily left) later yesterday my sister realized that she had forgot something at their house so she called to see if she could come get it. The lady didn't answer the phone, but called back a few minutes later and said we left some stuff and needed to come get it, she was getting in the shower. Apparently she couldn't wait 5 minutes while we came and got it. Eric took my sister to get it and she had put it in a sack outside their door. Geez I'd like to slap her attitude right out of her. We usually stay at another one of my cousin's houses but his wife was having her family over so we couldn't this time. My parent's said that next time we're up there if we have to stay at the one's we stayed at this time, we'll just rent a motel room and stay there because that's ridiculous to be treated that way. Anyways, other than that everything went very well and we enjoyed ourselves. I'll write more about our time in Maui when I post pictures next week. I hope everything is going well with everyone else and I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

The new song on here is one we played at our wedding, "Whatever It Takes" by Kellie Coffey. I love this song and I think it's a perfect fit even more today than the day we got married.

Leave is going good. We're at his families right now. We spent 5 days with mine and then came up here. We're here until Wednesday morning and then we're off to Hawaii. I'm so excited. Things are great with Eric and me. It's wonderful getting to spend time together. We went to an art museum yesterday, which was pretty fun. We've been staying with family the whole time, which kind of sucks, but we still go off and do our own thing alone. I'm ready for our trip, so we won't have to worry about family for a while. I love them to death, but I don't want to have to worry about them for a while. Anyways, I won't be back on here until we're back, but I hope everything is going good for everyone else. Have a great next couple of weeks!!!
