Playing Catch Up!!

So I haven't updates our blog since before Christmas-I know I'm lame. But hold on because we have a lot to catch up on!
We were able to go home for Christmas this year! We try to go about every other year and this time we were able to see my family and Scott's fam. We had a blast. Tosh was an angel on the plane-I know hard to believe-he is the most active kid in the world! He colored, played with his stringing toy and watched the digi-player. We got lucky!

Thank goodness he did not look like this on the plane!

Here are some pictures from my house. We were pretty much stuck on my parents' hill because there was so much snow! So we resorted to the "country activities" shooting at deer, the garbage cans and sledding. Tosh loved the snow. We were able to get to Olympia one day and met up with family on Christmas Eve. We loved seeing Tonya and her kids, Ashley and my parents.

On Christmas day we flew to Utah to be with all of Scott's family. We went sledding, played a lot of guitar hero-Steve is the master- and had a new family photo taken. It was a blast! Tosh loved to see all of his cousins, aunts and uncles and of course grandma and grandpa!

The fam-who was freezing! Tosh was in high style with his duct taped gloves and boots!

Tosh with Grandpa and a few cousins.

Good times!

So I am at work and get a call from my babysitter that Tosh split his lip open on her glass table and it looks like it needs stitches! I panic-I hate needles and Scott is not going to take him! I took him in and they said to take him to Kapioliani Hospital. Sure enough he needs a stitch-uno! It was sad and disgusting so I had to leave the room. Tosh screamed while they strapped him down and it sounded like that was the worst part. Poor kid. Too make things funnier- Jenn ( my babysitter said her daughter was trying to hug Tosh when he feel on the table. He is already fighting off the girls! We're in trouble!!

The one stitch is under his lip on the right side. He is such a great kid-he smiled on cue even after being traumatized!

So I decided to run the Great Aloha Run this year. I had a great running partner who trained with me. A week before she decided that she would not be able to run because her foot was bothering her. I was bummed, so Scott said he would go with me. He is so sweet. He did not train a single day-crazy! He surprised me and we were able to jog most of the way. He felt great until the next day or three! It was an 8.16 mile run from Aloha Tower to the Stadium. We ran it in 1 hour 22 minutes. Not too shabby!

I know what you are thinking-his first haircut?? But this is the first "real" haircut he has had. Scott and I took turns trying to give him trims and they just never really look great. We finally gave in and took him in last night. We were tired of him shaking his head like a shaggy dog and his bangs getting in his eyes. Doesn't he look so grown up? What the heck happened to my little baby?

Here is Tosh Pre-Hair Cut Here is his debut Photo!

The End

Scott turns the BIG 29!!!

Yesterday was Scott's birthday! He turned 29! Whoa, someones getting old! Ha! He says he still feels like he is 25. I guess lucky for him he still looks 25. :) Unfortunately, his birthday celebration was cut short. Some of you may have heard that we have had torrential rain fall causing massive flooding. Well that means that Scott is in charge of making sure each job gets done. They are working on the Dole Cannery Theaters, BYU GCB as well as 30 units that flooded, a church, the whole PX on base and on and on. So Scott had to settle for a quick breakfast (crepes) and ran out the door at 7:00 am. He didn't get home until 8:00pm. Bummer! We really won't have time to even go out to a birthday dinner until we are on the mainland-we are leaving FRIDAY!! Yay!

Reasons I LOVE Scott:

There really are a lot! But #1 is that he is a GREAT Husband and Father! He always makes time for Tosh and I and we always have so much fun!
2. Scott is very kind, sometimes too kind-can that really happen? Yes! He is fair with everyone and always willing to help even when it is not at all convenient for himself.
3. Scott is smart- he is quick on his feet and is a great problem solver.
4. Scott is very funny he always makes me laugh, when he gets together with old buddies- watch out!
5. Scott is SO handsome-look at that hard bod! Jealous with envy? Thought so! :)
6. He always takes me shopping and even does a good job picking out clothes for me-not all of you out there have a husband who tolerates being a shopping partner.
7. He takes turns doing the dishes and cooking! (And yes, his food is edible!)
8. He is sincere. He always means well, is a good listener and knows how to make me feel good.
9. Honestly, I have NEVER heard anyone say anything bad about Scott- and why would they?!
I love you Scott!

Lovin the Surf!

It's almost Christmas!!! We love, love, love this time of year!! For us it signifies the beginning of great surf on the North Shore. Scott is happier, I am happier, so we all win! We have really been taking advantage of the beginning of the surf season. Scott has been out just about every weekend and been catching some good waves. Tosh and I chill on the beach and swim. I'd die if I paddled out there!

We are also really excited to go home to Washington and Utah to see family. *This is when it really feels like Christmas. I can't wait to wear more clothes-did that come out wrong?! You all know what I mean. I also can't wait to see Tosh's reaction to snow.

We recently went to the Triple Crown Contest at Sunset and had a really good time. The waves were epic!

Here is Tosh and I getting barreled!

Scott ran into Rabbit Kekai, a surf legend. He began surfing in 1925. He was a little off to be perfectly honest! Right after I took the picture he turned to a friend and said, "that's not my baby!" I was thinking you are right on that, that would be creepy!!!

This is Rob Machado in his rental car driving by. Scott and I looked over and there he was in all his glory! I yelled "Hey Rob!" and he waved. How sweet!
Here is Sunny Garcia getting interviewed right after his heat. He's fresh out of prison. Didn't pay his taxes on his prize money.
Hope everyone is having a great holiday season! Mele Kalikimaka!!

Thanksgiving Feast

Our Thanksgiving started off very well. We got up and out the door early to surf and it was a perfect day for waves and weather! Tosh and I hung out, swam and built sand castles, then Jamie and her 2 girls showed up. Scott got some killer waves and then we headed back home to get ready for our feast!

I made my mom's yams and Chels' apple pie. Yum! Both were excellent. Then we headed out to Laie to Chirs and Jackie's house. We had a great time out there. They had a ton of people over (19 adults and 4 kids!) Scott and the guys hung out on the half pipe most of the time. Tosh even got in on the action. He also liked their trampoline. Tosh is so funny, every time someone took a picture he would have to be in it, he would just walk right in front and smile. He was quite the little entertainer.

Here are the guys just chillin'.

I have to admit it was a little crazy that every woman in the room was pregnant, except for those who just had a baby! That's when you know you are in Laie, only in Laie! Thanks Jackie and Chris!

Shaggy Dog!

Tosh's hair is getting SO long! Scott and I have been debating whether to cut it and do a foe-hawk or let it grow out. Either way, I know, it needs to be trimmed out of his eyes. But, I am telling you he is the hardest kid to give a hair cut. We have tried everything short of tying him down. While he is sleeping, bribing him with a treat and Barney, etc... Any suggestions?
He has this habit of shaking his head back and forth "the no shake" just to feel his hair flapping in the wind. What a funny kid. He truly looks like a little, but extremely cute, shaggy dog!

What do you guys think? I'm taking a vote yes to the foe-hawk or to growing it out? Here are some picts to show the urgent need to decide!

His hair is so long and heavy it no longer stays up. Check out the wave brah!

Kustom Boards By Scotty

Scotty's Hobby

So many of you know that Scott has started shaping boards. Now I get to post the fruits of his labor! He is on the Big Island, working and I was the one (I know, I am a great wife), who drove to V-Land to pick up his latest and greatest!

This is the first board that he shaped. It is a 7'8 Single Fin Big Wave Board. It is a 70's style board and has a pin tail.

This is the second board he shaped for Drew. It is a 7'6 Fun Board with a 2+1 fin set up and a rounded tail.

And this my friends is a very special board because it is for Steve! His board is a 8' carving, all around board. It is a thruster with a squash tail.

Isn't my husband talented?!! So, if you would like a custom board, Scott is your man!

This is not snow!
I didn't get too many of him shaping, but here are a few. Every time he comes in he is covered. *My Guest room is turning into a board room-Scott loves this. They have a safe resting place.

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone! We had a great night. We started off by taking Tosh to the Mililani Town Center and going around to all of the stores. Then we went to our church activity- Trunk-r-Treat. All the trunks of the cars were decorated and Tosh collected a lot of candy. Well, since he doesn't need it, I'm sure Scott and I will eat some of it and the rest I will make leis out of.
One lady was dressed up as a witch and he HATED her costume. Every time she tried to put candy into his pumpkin, he would grunt and quickly pull his pumpkin away from her. Too funny! She did look quite creepy though.

Tosh & Mahea
Called to Serve?

After trick or treating Tosh and Scott were exhausted! Tosh loved the monkey suit to begin with, but by the end of the night we couldn't get it off quick enough.
