Big girl

First off, I just have to say my baby is so yummy. I really can't stop kissing and nibbling at her all day. Oh, and don't even get me started on how delicious she smells...... You would think this was my first baby instead of my third. I guess they are all so yummy you have to have more :)

Here is a picture of her sitting in a cart for the first time. And yes, it's a target because I love that store.
Then we went to Costco and the sisters got to sit together.
Sister love.

Alexandria Crawling for the First Time

video
As you can tell from Marta's live commentary, we were pretty excited to see Alexandria crawling for the first time.

Christmas Morning

This has been a fun Christmas. The kids are old enough where they really get it and the anticipation of Santa was so exciting. In fact Olsen said Christmas eve that he should go to bed. He has never said that before :) So here are a million pictures of the kids Christmas morning.

Olsen had no problem to start opening presents.
Gabriella kept saying "my presents?" So cute.
Of course Olsen got some sort of sword.
Alexandria liking her new toy.
The many faces of Alexandria


The caos that is Christmas morning. Olsen is trying his new roller skates.
Hollywood star.
Holding her new notebook and purse.
More funny faces of baby

Olsen loved the new slot cars that "daddy" got. He would lay down by it and just watch the cars go round and round.
Petting his new roaring T-rex.

Gabriella saves the day

Alexandria was a little nervous around Olsen's new dinosaur, but luckily Gabriella was there to rescue her.

Oh Christmas Tree.........

I love our tree. Last year we bought an artificial (I felt evil at the time, but now I'm okay with it), but it's a really nice one that actually looks kinda real. It is so easy to set up and take down. And it doesn't die 2 weeks before Christmas! I've had the worst luck keeping trees alive. Oh, and there NO MESS!
Olsen looking rather serious in front of the tree.
And Gabriella just looks grumpy. I didn't have much luck with them this morning.
These are pictures of some of my favorite ornaments....

This one I got in Italy in 2002. I had to follow in my sister Heather's foot steps. :)

Alexandria sleeping

We just moved Alexandria into her own room Monday night. I know it's weird, but she seems like such a big girl now. I took these pictures yesterday with my phone.

Alexandria taking a nap.
Just being adorable on the couch......
I love her teeth!

Harris Park

This is the craziness that is my backyard. My neighbor said it's not the Harris house, it's the Harris park. We've always got anywhere between 5 to 10 kids in the back. I must say, I do like that they all come over here because I like to know where my kids are. :) It can get a little too crazy and that's when I say it's break time and everyone go home for an hour. Then everyone comes back and it's playtime once more.

All of them holding still for the picture.
How it really is!
And my little Alexandria girl playing so nicely inside with me.

Harris Tradition

What started out as some cute little snapshots I took of Olsen on a whim at the beach, has turned into a very cute baby tradition. Now when the baby turns 6 months old or so we make our way down to Pine Trees (a stretch of beach that you have to have 4 wheel drive to get too) and look for a cool spot to take pictures.

What a fun day..... Parade and Beach

We had a great family day today. First we met family down on Alii Dr. for our town parade. Byron's brother Willie is band director for Kamehameha School and they performed in the parade this morning.

Family sitting on the curb watching the parade.
Alexandria being held by her cousin Alema. Yes, the flower is huge, but it was so cute on her I had to have her wear it.
Kamehameha School band. The best on the Island of course.
Willie making sure they stay in line.
We also decided it was time to head to the beach as a family. It's been awhile.... So we loaded up Byron's truck and headed to Pine Trees. We had to use his truck because you need 4 wheel drive to get there. It was a perfect day at the beach.
Gabriella and Olsen checking out the water.
Alexandria hung out with me on the sand.
Olsen picking up the white coral rocks to take to his dad.
In the middle of the water there is Gabriella floating on her back.
Byron needed the white rock for the Alexandria sign. Got to keep up with tradition you know...
Alexandria had fun playing in the little tide pools.
They all had fun playing in the tide pools.
The Harris kids.

Silly faces.
Gabriella loves the water
Olsen is looking around for fish or crabs to catch.

All in all, it was a wonderful fun filled day!!
