  1. Mele Kalikimaka to you too Girasoli! These are wonderful photos and I love the leis, ukelele and hula decorations ! Thank you so much for writing such great blogs throughout the year. I have learned so much and have enjoyed reading your posts.
    I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Girasoli! We’ll break open the Champaign (or should I say Prosecco) bottle for you over here in Califronia to start the New Year Celebration in 2009 to kick things off, then I’m sure you’ll carry on the Celebration over in Hawaii for us. Should be a fun and interesting year!

  5. Jerry, your comment cracked me up. Being the next president is the gift Santa brought to me and millions of others. No need having him shirtless on my blog :) He has already hit enough internet sites that way.
    Thanks so much Palma! You too!!
