Wow!!! It's the End of 2011

So it's been a long time since I have blogged. So much has happened, but all is well. This past year has flown by so fast. Are family has grown with 3 more additions Moana Meafou, Miriah Faupula (our nieces), and a chihuahua named "Lucky". Karizma is now 8, and was baptized this past summer with 3 of her close cousins. She played basketball and t-ball for the first time this year and this past fall was her 5th season playing soccer, of which her team went undefeated this year. She's in 3rd grade and continues to excel in every subject. Kiyana is now 7, and is growing everyday. She towers over Karizma by 2" and is definitely our bookworm. She too played basketball and t-ball for the first time, and was in her 4th year of soccer. Karizma & Kiyana played on the same soccer team. She enjoys singing and spends lots of time leaving our family with notes that uplifts us in so many ways. She is in 2nd grade and is determined to be a Vet Dr. or a singer when she grows up. Tiare is now 5, oh how time flies. She has been the child to test our faith. She was attacked by a pit bull this past fall and thankfully has been spared major injuries. She is in kindergarten and is loving every minute of learning new things. She too has been growing and we think will be towering over Karizma in the next year or two. She played basketball and t-ball for the first time and 2nd year in soccer. Luckily for her, she had the bestest coach ever (her mom)!!! The girls have learned what work is all about, they held their very first job with a paper route that they did once a week. With their earnings they have saved up, they will be taking our family to Disneyland the first week of Jan 2012. We are so proud of them and super excited that they will get to enjoy their hard works earnings. As for Miriah, she turned 18 and graduated from Wheatland High School. She is now attending ARC in Sacramento and is currently learning how to live in the real world. Moana is now an official adult. She turned 21 and has purchased her first car. She also has accomplished boot camp and is in the Air force stationed at the North Beale AFB. She plans on moving out soon and finishing up school and pursuing what life has in store for her. As for our Dog, Lucky, we saved him from the pound. He was labeled vicious and he is when he is hungry or if he doesn't like you. We are still trying to train him, with the help of our future Vet Dr (Kiyana), she has checked out books on Chihuahuas and is determined to turn him into the perfect dog. It's been a joy to watch the girls excitement every time they come home and greet their dog. Dee was released as the YM's president this past Summer after serving for almost 5 years. He was called to be on the Yuba City Stake High Council. It has been different, but a good different and he loves working with so many great leaders of our stake. He continues to work hard and progress with his concrete business and we have to give him credit for dealing with 6 girls!!! As for Serina, she keeps busy with working part-time as a Para educator at her kids school. She also has one more class to go to graduate in General Business, and is currently going on two years serving as Primary President in her Ward. We all have been quite busy this past year, but we are looking forward to 2012 of what blessings awaits our family. We hope you all have enjoyed your Christmas and we wish you all a Happy New Year!!!!!
