Tis the season

This Christmas has been so fun. Sini & I have done everything we can think of...except sledding...we haven't been sledding yet....I don't know if his Tongan blood temperature will be able to handle it hahahaha. I can't believe Christmas is almost here...I feel like once it's here it's over so quickly! So this year I've been taking things slow & enjoying every minute of the season. Sini & I went on a walk during one of the snow "storms"....it was (dare I say...at the price of sounding overly cheesy) magical. The snow was falling so softly, the night was reflecting off the the snow so the street lamps weren't necessary....it wasn't too cold...but it wasn't warm either. It was wonderful. In the past Sini has hightailed to the warmth of Hawaii for the the winter season, but this year I couldn't allow that....no....I just begged him to stay (begged is over exaggerated...all I did was look at him funny & he knew Hawaii was not an option). So this season marks the first snowfall of Sini's memory. I feel so lucky that I get to share these experiences with him. Sini has seriously brought a tremendous amount of joy to my life....& no I'm not trying to get sappy with my love for Sini, but I truly love him & all that he does for me....so sue me for wanting to share that with the world *big gasp* what'll I tell mom? In all of my 27 years I have never had a signifigant other to share Christmas with, & I wouldn't have had it any other way. Sini was def worth the wait!
Sometimes people write about their top 5 favorite moments of the the Holiday Season & as I sit here at work....with a little time on my hands...I thought I'd do the same....maybe you'll have the same idea & blog about it!
Top 5 Favorite Holiday Memories '08:
5: Walking outside & seeing Sini shoveling my driveway so my dad or my mom wouldn't have to do it. (It was so thoughtful...no one asked him to do it...I know it might seem like a little thing but it meant so much to all of us...who didn't have to do it).
4: Advent Sunday with my family
3: Christmas Tea with the Campbell Girls (yes I'm a Campbell girl by birth...I might not look like it....but it's something to envy hehehehe)
2: Taking Sini to see the lights at Temple Square for the first time in his life.
1: Going to Candlelight Christmas at "This is the Place" w/"Haisy" (Daisy & Hema) & the boys.
Now I know that the Holiday season is not yet over....so this list is "just for now." I love watching everyones reactions when they open their gifts. Stay tuned for post Holiday blogs! Hopefully I'll have funny family stories too tell...fingers crossed...everything crossed!
