Back from the Beaches of Maui and Announcing the Art Giveaway Winners!

Breathtaking beauty is the only way to describe Maui! And of course one must have something fruity, fussy and that is adorned with an umbrella and a pineapple ring once you are hanging on the beach!

Fun times with the family at the evening Luau! I think all my boys were a bit distracted with the hula dancers (Daddy being the biggest boy of them all!)

There is nothing more heavenly than the aroma of a fresh lei. My hubby surprised me with it for the evening luau! I lived on the islands as a child and use to make leis and secretly wished to be a hula dancer!

My oldest boys have decided the Hawaiian way of life is made for then! All I hear now is how they can save up enough money and get back over there and "hang out" and work
The most amazing "Rainbow Trees"! These were such a beautiful artistic sight! Talk about God's paintbrush!

The only place on earth I can be sure that everyone will spell and pronouce my name right (haha)! My name in Hawaiian means "Hawaiian Sky"!

Beautiful Family Vacation!
I was there many years ago.
How neat there is a store

Congratulations Winners!

Please continue to pray for my son Bryan. He is having a port put in his chest on April 14th for his Cancer treatments. He lives in Sweden. If you have a prayer team
that would be great and please mention him in prayers at your church! Thanks so much!!!
