Aloha e Carissa & Viki,

I enjoyed 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. 

Love, Viki


Dear Aunty 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. 

Sincerely, Carissa 

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'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?  Money's better?  

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 here.

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 think...

Talking about thank you notes:  

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 Kapoho ...


"Life is a Gift."

With mahalo, 
Aunty D
