Christmas Open House - Mele Kalikimala

Aloha Visitors, I am so glad you are here! I am assuming that many of you would be coming from Boomama's Tour Of Homes. But even if you didn't, I still am happy you're visiting.

For ambiance, I thought I'd find a music that we can play while you are here. What better Christmas song there is to play than Mele Kalikimaka since you're visiting a Maui Home :). Below is a You Tube video, just click the arrow, let the music play while you look around. I'd like to say that the house on the video is ours but it's not. Let's just pretend, ok? So, play the music and let's move on :)



When I peeked at the linky list, there's already about 150 people listed (wow!) Once again I am late in putting together a post, so I will just upload some photos and put the captions later (sorry, I am quite disorganized). Maybe you can ask questions about the photos (on the comments) to make it easier for me to put the caption when I get back. Thank you.












From our family to yours ... Merry Christmas!



Again, thank you for visiting. I'd be back with cookies and goodies (and yes, to tell you about the photos). When you leave a message, make sure you're name is linkable or leave a link to your blog so I can visit you too :)

Aloha!

That song reminds me of 'Christmas Vacation'.

I LOVE that advent calendar! I want to know where you got it. Not that they have the same stores here. Still. I'm nosy like that.

Beautiful decorations, beautiful family. Merry Christmas.

Oh Liza!! That's been one of my favorite songs since I was a little girl.

I love all your ornaments & the your family photo looks so sweet. My boys had to look over my shoulder after they heard the music.
