Snow on Haleakala!

Well this morning I woke up to find out that we have snow on top of Haleakala. It was a beautiful sight. While driving around I could see the rain, sun, and snow. It was a little colder than usual, but the heat is coming back soon.
Here is a picture I took of the mountain.Here is another pictures I found on the internet. A little closer view then I could get from my house. Now, who said I have to go to the mainland to see snow?

Well I recently found out that my roommate will be moving back to the mainland at the end of February. I have to find a roommate within the next few weeks. Anyone want to move to Maui?
I hope to find the best roommate for me so I don't have to loose this place. It's cheap for Maui and it has a pool and it's located across the street from the beach.

At the Pool!

So I was just hanging out by the pool trying to get a tan, when I overhear this conversation:
Kids: Are you Santa?
Man: Yes
Kids: If you're Santa, what's my name?
Missed that answer.
Kids: Thanks for the bike
Man: You're welcome
Girl: Hi Santa
Man: Hi Jessica (mom told the man what the girl's name was)
Girl: (Smiled)
Man: I need a break
While Man was laying on the beach chairs he was listening to a walkman
Kid1: Santa has a recorder
Kids2: He is playing a video game
Kids3: He has his own set up
Lady: you can teach Santa how to swim. What would you say is the most important?
Girl: (didn't really hear how she explained it, but it was cute)
Man: I'll race you
Girl takes off kicking on her boogie board, and looks back
Girl: you're not swimming
Man is using his hands to swim but walking in the pool
Man: I am
Girl talks to him from the sidelines and she is ready to jump and race him to the other side
Man: Look over there
Girl looks away from the pool in that direction, than looks back
Girl: (with a surprised look on her face) Oh, no ( and jumps in the pool kicking away)
Man: I'm winning
Girl: No
Man slows down so the girl can win
Girl: how come you never win?
Man: You can win all the time.
Girl: I can
It was an interesting conversation to say the least. These kids totally thought that this guy was Santa. He had the belly, the white hair and beard, and he was old.

Just something to read for all of you who do...

Happy 2008!

Hope everyone had a blessed day in the new year. I will be spending my last day in Washington. Tomorrow I leave to go back to Hawaii. It was great being here spending time with my family and friends. I was very happy to get to see snow. It wasn't a lot but it was something.
Christmas went well and now we are in the new year. I have to think about some of the things I would like to do in the new year before it flies by again.

Let's review my new year resolutions from last year.
1. Join a gym or start some kind of work out program for myself. - Done (I've joined Power house and I also started eating differently)
2. GO to Israel. (Visit N and M) - Done (I got to visit Palestine and Israel)
3. Lead a team to Romania at the Camp of the Good Shepherd. - Done (It was a great experience and I will be doing it again)
4. Find a potential Husband (of course if it's God's will) - I seem to have difficulty with this one. I prayed for one this year.
5. Save money to adopt a kid from Liberia. - It's in the process. It's expensive to adopt.
6. Sponsor a child in Romania. - Not yet
7. Finish my notes that I am behind on. - Not yet. Still working on them.
8. Start reading the Bible. - I sure started but did not finish.
9. Participate in a Hula dance at Church. - Yes and loving it.
10. Finish Martha's CD of baby shower pictures. - Done
11. Learn to Swim - Not confident enough yet. Will have to work on that harder.
12. Go snorkeling. - No
13. Visit my family at least two times. - August and Christmas
14. Get a six pack or at least a flat tummy. - Ha Ha never
15. Eat at the Four Seasons resort. - Eat? I even got to spend a weekend there.
16. Visit Family in Romania. - Yap in July before camp
17. Visit Keira and Lianne in Oahu. - Saw both of them but not on Oahu, but in Maui. They came to visit me.
18. Go to the Big Island (it will be my last island to visit) - Done (Hilo side and Kona side)
19. See C. and C.'s baby. - Yes, at Christmas time. They are cute.
20. Write a letter to N (different then the above). - Done.

Looks like I will have to come up with a new list. I'll have to think about that one for a while.
