e Carissa & Viki,
receiving your thank you notes. Viki, we got your e-card last
week, and Carissa, we got your letter in the mail today. They
remind me to get started on mine!
Dear Aunty & Uncle,
Thank you so much for the money. I haven't
found what I want yet but I will let you know when I find the perfect gift.
Please keep in touch and Happy Holidays.
D and Uncle T,
Thank you for the money. I haven't
spent it yet, but I am sure it will be something special just like
you. Hope you had a very special Christmas. Hope you had
a good year and year to come.
I wish you two were a
lot closer than 2000 miles away. Then, I could go shopping
with you on Maui, looking for your perfect and special gifts with
you. Last year's Barnes and Nobles gift certificates turned
out to be a bust...it's BORDERS that you have on Maui!
You're both at that age
that I think you'd prefer to find something that's YOUR taste and
not mine, which admittedly is a bit eccentric, and besides, books
may not be a priority in your life right now. Correct?
Thank you, too, for
sending us your holiday picture. You two are looking great!
I'm bookmarking this page, so I can visit you often when I'm working
I hope the world will be
at peace, come this July, as we'd love for you to fly up and visit
us while we're on vacation. We've been enjoying Disneyland and
Disney California Adventure this past year, and would love to share
the parks with you. Check with Mom and Dad on this, and maybe we can
begin to work on making this happen. Let me know what they
Talking about thank you
Thank you and Mom and
Dad for sending us this adorable Hawaiian porcelain doll to us for
Christmas. We love her. She reminds us of you, Carissa!
She has dark hair and bangs, just like you.
Until, next time, stay
well, enjoy Maui for us, especially the beaches. I hope you're
still accompanying your Dad on his ulua fishing trips, as I am sure
he enjoys your company, just as Grandpa used to enjoy it when I'd
wait for him on shore when he threw his fish nets for mullet in
"Life is a Gift."
P.S. If you would
like to share a portion of yourself with words, in response to
this journal entry, you may do it here.
