A Hawaiian Dinner on Saturday and Church on Sunday!

Amber can pull a party out of her hat like THAT!
She cooked a Hawaiian lunch that was amazing!

Yummy, yummy!

Not only did she cook a huge spread - she also decorated the tables!

This was the 'kids' table......where all the girls sat.....Trystan, Kailey, Logan and Rayne.

While Harrison requested to be seated at the adult table!
Can you blame him? 

Amber and Mike make a good team!

Together they manned the kitchen.

Amber has been a good cook for most of her life!
She has been making magic in the kitchen since she was 12!

While they cooked, the rest of us sat around and visited.

Summer made some awesome holiday hair bows and I totally missed getting photos of them!

Rayne enjoyed playing with the kids and the kids sure enjoyed Rayne!!!

Notice that Logan dressed up and added an lei to her dress.

Harrison tried the blow the shell like they do in Hawaii.
This one had a small hole in the end so he DID blow it.

He played so hard that he just face planted on his daddy's lap and fell sound asleep.

My sweet daughters! 21 years age difference!
Still, connected on so many levels.

One is their sense of humor!!!!!

It was a great afternoon and Amber and Mike were great hosts!!!

I had left Louis Dean home working on his latest project - a new storage building - so he missed out on all the fun. Still, he was pretty happy with his progress plus he made himself a homemade hamburger and then watched one college football game after another! Win! WIN!!

I am loving the Hawaiian perfume Amber brought back - and the leaf shaped soap!

We made it to church and arrived NEARLY on time!!

After wards, we lingered long visiting with everyone and then stood by and watched the quads run around! I imagine they all went home and took good naps! I know I did!

Logan ran so much her legs got tired.
Granddad is always good for a carry!

I love going to church on Sundays......
and I love long afternoon naps......and football!!

FIVE wins in a row with our rookie quarterback!!

Amber's post on Facebook during the game.

"Watching the Cowboys game and they showed a close-up of several of the Green Bay players in their bright yellow helmets. Kailey pointed at the tv and says, "Football Minions!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


That Rayne Dakota 'Dak' Prescott is really someone special!
