    Amazing family photos!! Where’s the one of you drinking directly from the box?

  16. So absolutely beautiful captures. I have to ask how you got the driftwood into the sand. I tried to do that last summer at our beach and my cabana kept falling down!!! Pissed me off royally.

  17. Fabulous, dreamy pics. Have to say, the boxed wine placement reminds me of the Flat Stanley pics I took years ago. Conspicuous, yet not. Here’s hoping you have a wonderful Christmas.

  18. I really enjoy reading your blog. You always make me smile. I really love the photos, too. Your blonde headed “babies” are so cute. You have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing part of your adventure in paradise with us on the mainland.

  19. What a beautiful adventure your on. The kids are growing like weeds and you all look so happy.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family..

  20. Absolutely gorgeous…every single photo…and all of you:) Merry Christmas (Mele Kalikimaka) to the Buick family!

  21. beautiful family! Merry Christmas!!!

  22. I think the bootcamp is agreeing with you. I can tell you’ve lost weight. Great pics!

  23. Gorgeous! I really love the black and white one of you and the boys!

  24. Casey these are the best photos EVER! They so beautifully capture your family at THIS time, on THIS adventure. I love how blonde the kids have become. I hope that they will look back at these photos and see the love that their parents had for them and eachother that they could DO something so few can to make this hawaiian adventure possible. Capturing it like this was a fantastic idea! Merry Christmas!

  25. sorry Kasey with a K

  26. Your photos and family look amazing. Love them and so happy you are enjoying your time at the beach!

  27. The pictures are AMAZING…every single one of them!!! You look stunning especially in the picture with you & the boys and the one of you & Bryan…sooooo pretty!!! I like the quote on the picture…so glad you’re enjoying this change of pace & being joyful through what could’ve seemed a bleek situation. God knew just what you all needed and you’ve enjoyed every minute of it…minus the whole no Anthro & Target thing 🙂

  28. Beautiful photos Kasey, I love them!

  29. Your pictures are beautiful!

    Have a Wonderful Holiday!


  30. Love the photos. My absolute favorite is the one where Lola is leaning over Bryan’s shoulder and he is trying to give her a kiss while you are watching. Beautiful pics!

  31. I’ve read your blog for a few years (I love your sense of humor.) but I don’t think I’ve ever commented. These photos are GORGEOUS. I get the feeling that you think the entire world thinks you’re insane for moving to Hawaii. I don’t. I admire you for it. I think the Tolkien quote is perfect. Maybe it’s just my outsider perspective, but it seems like you guys are thriving on a whole new level. I know you miss your gorgeous house and your things, I would too. But it looks like you are creating these moments of pure magic for your family… Hats off to a brave, brave lady. Happy Holidays.
