A couple weeks ago we went over to Fresno to see Ioelu's sister, Lila, and her cute family! We were only there for the weekend, but we had a lot of fun! I loved hanging out with Lila and the kids and getting to know her a lot better. They have been waiting for us to finally make it over so they can bless their son, Talaitoa. He is a handsome little one! He's got the cutest dimples! We also got to meet their daughter, Arieta! She is beautiful! Krisalyn and Kyra had so much fun playing with her while we were there! We all miss them and hope to be able to see them again soon! Here are some pictures from our trip.

Baby Talaitoa

Ioelu and the kids at the park!
This was one of the few I could
get of him!

I love this picture of Kyra!

The girls...ALOHA

Krislayn loved climbing the tree.

The cutest kids ever! OK, so I'm biased!
What parent isn't! ;-)

William had so much fun at the park, he
found his own way up to the slide!

Ioelu with his niece and nephew the night we got to Fresno.
Poor guy, he was at the SLC Airport all day with the
girls until he could catch a flight to Fresno. He had me
and William go on the earlier flight. Oh, the joys of flying standby!
Not complaining though! We made it there!

The girls, the night we got to Fresno!

Krisalyn and Talaitoa!



As much as I love this country...I am definitely not liking the people who make the laws! Most people know that I am not married to an American citizen. We spent mega bucks to get him his Permanent Residency and we have just filed for his citizenship. NOW, I hear about this Amnesty Bill that is going through Congress...AGAIN...which is going to have us, the American taxpayers, paying for illegal immigrants to live here, like we don't already. But it gets better! If this is passed, illegal immigrants will get their citizenship within 24 hours, not have to pay back taxes, and qualify for the earned income credit! We are also going to have to pay for immigration lawyers! Gang members who are not citizens will get their citizenship within 24 hours, as long as they say that they won't be involved in the gang! ("Ok, I promise I won't have anything to do with my gang, sucker!!) Are you kidding me! What is this all about! I have no problem with people wanting to come to America! Come, WELCOME! This country was a refuge for immigrants, and still is! But, I just want everyone to be treated right...especially those who are doing it legally! You can bet that if this bill passes, I am going to fight! Demand for the hundreds of dollars that were spent to legally have my husband, and others, live and work in America! Is Congress really that dumb!? Seriously, I wonder how much they are getting paid off to pass this bill. That's the only way I can see this getting passed because as we all know, it's all about the money! I know not all of those who work for us in government are this crazy! But again, if this is passed, in all it's stupidity, I will go down fighting, because it just isn't right!
