It's Christmas time and its freezing over here on the mainland… Thinking back to the time before I had ever seen snow…. When the days were warm and Santa Claus wore slippas and shorts.

I was teaching my kids the Hawaiian version of 12 days of Christmas… its funny to hear them try and sing it with a pidgin accent and realize how not local my kids are.

I am grateful for the chance this year to take the family home for the summer… I am planning to make it a yearly tradition. My boys learned to surf and got to spend time with cousins… it was great to just walk the streets with time to cruse in stead of rushing around trying to get in every second of sights and sounds…. We cruised on the beach and hung out with friends and family… it was almost like being home for realz.

My lil sister found some old pictures of my grand parents in Laie back in the days it was cool seeing them, it reminded me that Hawaii is really home… proud to be from Laie and the islands.

Maybe one day I can find a way back… Like many of you I know that is the dream…

Aloha from the Uyehara's
