"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

Makai Family Thanksgiving Feast....

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving w/ my side of the family on Wednesday night so that all those who were married could celebrate w/ their in-laws on Thanksgiving day... we, as usual had a blast! I love getting together with family because we always seem to have a great time. This year our family was in charge of it, so at our FHE a couple weeks ago we divided up the food assignments....it turned out so nice, we had tons of food and it was all delicious!! Especially the dessert table, which is where I spent most of my energy!! Lol....

Marie and Lini put together some games to keep us entertained, and we were all laughing so hard. They played like a 'how well do you know your spouse' game and we were all rolling at some of the answers that were given.... Lol....

I just love how we try to focus more on the kids, planning games and activities for them to have a fun and memorable time. That's the best of the holiday season, watching your children getting older, making memorable experiences and creating never-ending relationships with their families...something that will hopefully be carried on whe our kids are parents!!

We also did tug-of-war, musical chairs, and the kids got to smash a pinata.....

The tug of war was girls against boys..... of course w/ the help of their uncles, the girls kept on winning! :)

I can't say it enough, I love getting together and spending fun family time...especially during the holidays!

This is a picture of my brother & sisters w/ our grandpa Carr.... my mama's dad. So glad he could join us to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday!
And of course Filimone always wants to take a shot w/ his Grampa Makai
