Hawaii!!!

Well, the tickets have finally been bought. I found such awesome deals on tickets that even Jay said that we couldn't pass them up. :) We're leaving the 9th of February and I EVEN lucked out and got us a room at the Hale Koa (a SUPER AWESOME military-only resort right on Waikiki beach!) WHOOP!  They have a luau, hula lessons, a polynesian something or other, a magic show for the kids, a PX, 3 (yup, THREE!) swimming pools, and 72 acres of "garden oasis" plus a secluded private beachfront. Oh, I can hardly contain myself!!
So, I headed off this afternoon for some fun shopping- the kids needed sandals, swimsuits, sunscreen, and pajamas that weren't fleece! It was much harder to track down the summer clothes than I'd planned on, but I found what I needed. :) Now, I just have to figure out what fits my preggo self.... I tell ya, this third kid popped my belly out almost immediately!!
Our flight leaves at 6 am on the 9th and we have an overnighter on the way back, so it's going to be interesting to say the least with Queen Antsypants on somebody's lap for however many hours. (I'm not looking because I don't want to know how long the flight is. Seriously, don't tell me.) Harry will be fine, so I'm hoping he will want to be my "buddy" on the flight and we'll just read books the whole time. The kid is a rockstar traveler, I tell you. Knock on Wood.... The little one on the other hand: she is quite another story, as I'm sure Grampa John will attest to after driving to MN and back with us this July!!
We also took the kids to Stars on Ice last night. Jay got free tickets for us through the base ITT, and only a few of my friends opted to go, so we brought the kids, Rhenda and Anna, and Sandra. I got some amazing video and some okay pictures (there was no flash allowed, so most of the pictures are blurry) and once I suck it up and load them onto MY computer (its like a 30 minute process these days- again, anybody want to donate dinero to the computer fund???), I'll post them.

I have a maternity swim suit, I don't remember what size it is but I'll bring it to whatever I see you at next (wait, your house tomorrow) and if it fits you can borrow it! I think I used it once... it's black and white and red? I don't remember. lol

I've been so behind on reading everyone's blogs...so what the heck? You're having another baby! Whoa-hoo! Good for you!

Oh and I quit the M&M too...

Have fun in Hawaii - I wish I were you! Really. I do. I'm tired of being cold.
