Heading to Hawaii!!!

We're heading to Hawaii! My parents are treating me and my siblings to a lovely vacation on the North Shore, near Honolulu! We will all arrive by Saturday night: Mom, Dad; Big Brother and his wife and three girls 13, 7, 4; Dh and myself and our two boys: 12 1/2 and 10; Little Single Sister: Little Brother and his wife (who happens to be named Sarah) and their two girls 6 and 3 and a new baby boy 6 months. Can you say full house?!

My part of the family will be there for a week. The rest of them will be there for two weeks. We've done a similar vacation, twice, to an itty bitty town in the Bahamas. We always have a great time together! And a week is perfect for my family! :)

I've got some easy little ornaments all kitted up. It takes a LONG time to fly to Hawaii from NC! We leave on a 6am flight, which means we have to leave our house by 4am at the very, very latest. We'll fly through Texas and Seattle and then on to Honolulu. It will take ALL day!

I debated taking my FP along with me. It's all just backstitch and it would be so easy to work on! But as my darling Luke said: "Mom, I don't think that'd be a good idea!" Smart kid, huh?

So tomorrow will be full of packing and cleaning the house! You know, I can NOT leave on vacation and come home to a messy house! Anybody else have that problem?

I've been debating taking a pause from the ole blogging world! Not sure I'm adding all that much to it anyways. :) So we'll see! After a week in Hawaii, I might just get my blogging groove back!

Oh Sara, what a wonderful vacation. Only thing better would be if you got to stay two weeks also. Enjoy yourself and your family!
I totally understand about hating to come home to a messy house. DH and his boys never got that and it was always a war. Still is!
I'll be dreaming of Hawaii for days now. Ummmmm!

Oh Gosh! Have Fun!!!

And yes, my house has to be clean (and the laundry and dishes done and put away) before we go away! Who wants to come home and deal with that???

Oh my gosh, how trememdously exciting! :D Have a great time!!

I used to be very uptight about coming home to a messy house (or rather, not having that happen) but I've had to adjust my opinions slightly over the years. LOL!
