9/25/08-4:30am-8lbs 10oz-20.5in.

Happy 1st birthday to our little AlohiLani! (the brightness of heaven) I know everyone always says..."I can't believe its been a year?" but, it's so true how quickly time has gone this year. Our baby girl is now a little girl. :( She has brought so much joy to everyone in our family. I just can't imagine life without seeing her cute little brown eyes everyday.

I don't think Halia will ever know how much I love her until she becomes a mother herself one day. Until then, I will try to tell her how much she is loved by everyone who meets her. Maybe one day she will see this and can understand a little about a mothers love.

Halia, it has only been one year and.....I have smiled, cried, laughed, screamed, and cried some more. You have taught me a lot this past year. I learned that there is not such a thing as a "perfect mother." I always make mistakes, but I will always learn from them. You taught me that not "everything" matters. YOU matter. I want you to know that I will never be the "perfect mother" but, I will do my very best for you. I can only dream about what our future will bring with the peace and serenity you carry with you everywhere. I love every minute we have together. You bring the brightness of heaven to our life. I am so grateful to Heavenly Father for making the sacrifice to send us such a beautiful and loving little piece of sunshine. I love you baby girl. :) Happy 1st Birthday!

Halia's 1st Birthday Party!

Since Halia has turned one my extra time has become shorter and shorter. So here I am 2 months later finally posting pics of her birthday party that I seriously planned for 3 months! I made everything myself except for the paper lanterns and the hibiscus flowers. I was so proud of myself and how frugal I was with her party. It was such a great turnout and so much fun! We had a barbecue at the park, with cupcakes and strawberries and cream Zeppes for dessert. Yum! Thank you to everyone who helped and contributed food. She got spoiled with so many gifts, including some air jordans, a Chargers uniform (#21 of course for her daddy's fav. player), clothes, toys, money, and the cutest pink and white dollhouse/bookshelf from her grandparents. Halia is so loved and thanks everyone for the best 1st year a girl could have! :)
P.S. If anyone would like to borrow the cupcake pans or decorations I would love to lend them to you!

Brand New Uggs for Sale!

****Size 5 tall black suede and shearling Uggs.**** These are still in the box and I am trying to sell them. They have never been worn! I got the wrong size and I need to sell them before I can get some new ones. If you wear a size 6 or 6.5 regularly, then you would fit into a size 5 in Uggs. They run big. If you have never tried the "true Uggs" in the winter time, then you have no idea what your feet are missing. Uggs are worn without socks and they keep your feet sooooo warm during the cold snowy months. Because of the the natural shearling liner, they keep the temperature of your feet regulated no matter what time of year it is! The outside is black suede, with a cream shearling liner, and black lacing up the sides. You can tuck your pants in them so they don't get wet! So cute! The sole is a hard sole so they are more waterproof than traditional uggs. The style is called "Upside" if you want to look them up. I'm selling them for $150.00 If you try to get them on Amazon they are about $170.00 + shipping and handling. They are normally $230.00 in the retail stores, so its about a $80.00 savings. If you are interested you may contact me. I will try to take a better, bigger picture with my camera and post it soon. :)

What?!... Already?!

So where in the world did this last year go?! Halia will be 1 in 2 weeks on September 25th. Due to Sale having such a humongous family...trying to work around everyones schedules, we finally agreed on having her 1st birthday party this Saturday. The 1st birthday is a big deal in the Polynesian culture so we had to do it big of course. (would you expect any less from the Fonotisatele's?) With Sale's siblings and their children there is 42 people! That's just the ones that actually live in Utah! will be quite the party. Unfortunately my sis and one of his sisters won't be able to make it. :( I will be sure to update you on her party pictures after this weekend. Here is her cute invite that Jessi at announcementstoponder made for me. (for all you party goers, the info was changed for safety)
