Sightings...


There were lots of spooky sightings tonight. The undead. Apparently...

Lit...


The night was lit alive...

Halloween...



The boys dressed up for Halloween. Elliott became Gaara with his sand gourd from Naruto. We decided to forego the red hair however. Koa opted for a member of the elite S.W.A.T. team from HPD. He didnʻt want to stand at doors yelling Trick-or-Treat. He wanted to kick the door down and search the whole house for sweets...

Siblings...


Despite all the arguments and fights over territorial issues. In the end. You can always count on the needed uplifting support...

Serious...


So serious...

Old Soul...


Very old soul...

Happy...




Happy siblings...

Exactly...


I feel like this at least nine to ten times a day...

Project...






Koa had to make a tree for school. This is his variation of a Kou tree. He made it out of twisting wire. Hot gluing leaves which were punched out of green paper with a leaf punch from Ben Franklin. Then he painted the green wire brown. And then he added some fallen leaves on the ground. He is a creative little boy. That is for sure...

Twilight...


Elliott wants to be Gaara, the Sand Gourd guy from Naruto. I think he should be vampire Edward Cullen from the movie Twilight. When he wakes up in the morning and his hair is all standing up, his face is white, and he looks like Cullen. Here he is playing the violin piece from the Soundtrack to Twilight, Bellaʻs Lullaby. It would be perfect...

Theory...


There goes my theory that only little boys like little rocks...

Through...


Some people donʻt just look at you. They look right through you...

ʻIke...


Vision...

Shade...


Koa enjoys his new shades. It is for eye protection. And ego protection...

Mood...


A candle. Chucky and his bride. Set the mood for Halloween for the boys...

Hoʻailona...


Just in time for Halloween...

Lazy...


I love to lay down on the hot black sand at the surge line and let the cool water wash over me as I waste away the day. But I donʻt have any armor. Nor thick skin...

Faces...









The world comes to visit the Volcano at Halemaʻumaʻu...
