Rain, Rain, and more Rain!

Yesterday it was raining when I woke up, and continued all day. While at school the lights flickered off and on for hours. Once I found out school was canceled this morning, we decided to go check out the accumulation in the gulch. 
The sheer force of the water was astounding!

The clouds are surrounding us now, and the sun is shining bright.

So one of those video's Matt and I took a few days ago ended up on the local abc KITV news!
Around 30 seconds our clip is included. Take a look at it by clicking here.

Holidays 2010/2011

Happy, happy new years! It has been a beautiful holiday season for me and Matt. 

A bit of time off from school over the past couple of weeks has given me time to spend with Matt, and nature.

The Makawao Forest Reserve is so beautiful. We were there on the Tuesday before Christmas.

Then in a flash it was New Years day. Matt made a pear, apple, loquat, and lilikoi pie from scratch.

After pie we went to Ho'okipa for some waves and sun.

The last sunset of 2010.

  The chickens were all ready for a happy new years eve.

Dessert numero uno. Creme brulee, and light pastry.

30 ft. long firecracker. 

Surprise birthday cake!

Coffee ice cream stuffed pastry; the final dessert of the evening!
Now a short video of the fireworks!
The tradition of burning fireworks/money brings good luck. Bring it 2011!
