Speaking of another miracle, Hyrum Lassen Endecott was born on November 16th. He was 6 days late which is right on schedule for me. Hyrum was a healthy 10.3 lb. boy! I still can’t believe I gave birth to a toddler! He is so handsome and sweet and it is so fun to see Haans interact with his first son. The girls love him too and can’t wait till he can play with them. He is now a hearty 13 lb. six week old. I defiantly will get some good biceps from carrying him around.
Haans has one more semester at University of Hawaii until he has his Master’s in Public Administration. He is getting good grades which is awesome as he has had to work full-time and go to school full-time. We are super proud of him. He is enjoying his new job in downtown Honolulu and we will see what future adventures come upon his graduation in May. Haans is also keeping busy with his church calling as a primary worker to a class of rambunctious boys.
Although I was in the last stages of pregnancy during the hottest and most humid time in Hawaii, I am still grateful to live in a warm climate, although I greatly welcomed the winter rains where the temperature is a freezing 77 degrees. I am thankful I am able to stay home with our children, another miracle, considering we live in a very expensive state. I love taking my girls to the beach, pools and parks with our wonderful friends. I am still the Primary Chorister and love that church calling. It takes a lot of planning and energy but I love teaching our huge primary, and I enjoyed being part of our yearly Primary Program, even if I was 38 weeks pregnant.
We had a wonderful time in June hosting my immediate family when they came to vacation here on Oahu. We delighted in passing on our insider’s knowledge as we explored the island and the beautiful beaches. And we loved being around so much family!
We truly have had a blessed year full of many more miracles, and we hope you had a wonderful time celebrating the greatest miracle of all, the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Happy New Year!
