I’m still recovering from our New Year’s celebration in Kailua, but managed to put together this 9 minute video to recap the 12 hour get-together. “What no alcohol?” you ask. Oh no, there was plenty of that, but I figure I’d spare you the drunken parts of the night. 😉 Here goes nothing. Hope you enjoy it.

It’s hard to believe 2009 is here! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Time sure flies when you’re having fun. It’s been another great year for the Kam family filled with many memories along the way thanks in large part to the joy of our life – Ensen!

We also kept up tradition last night by ringing in the New Year in Kailua at Kelly’s parent’s house with plenty of family, friends, food, fireworks, fun, and (f)rain (though I’d try to keep the “f” thing going). What a blast to say the least and stay tuned for a video post here later this week of all the excitement. But for now, here’s a couple photos and a video to remember the night…small kine!

Ensen meet Morning Glory sparkler. Morning Glory sparkler meet Ensen. It was love at first pop. 🙂




Cori, Kelly, Ensen, and Emmi.


Uncle Kevin (Kelly’s brother) and his fiance Sherrie with Ensen. Yes, you read that correctly…FIANCE…they recently got engaged. CONGRATULATIONS!


Kelly’s cousin John and his wife Mary with Ensen.


Kailua Grandpa (Dave) and Ensen.


We had a lot of great food for New Year’s Eve, but this full roast pork was the star! So ono and the crispy skin was delicious.

As chance would have it, the New Orleans Hornets play the Toronto Raptors on December 31 at New Orleans Arena. So in the true spirit of doing everything possible while we’re in The Big Easy, our little group of five will be going to the game on New Year’s Eve.

I hate to admit this, but I have no idea who plays on either team. Does Vince Carter still play for the Raptors? A quick check of the team roster confirms he doesn’t. GREAT! I officially know nobody on either team. But it will be fun regardless and I’m going more for the excitement of attending a NBA game.

I do have one more question. I wonder if our family is somehow related to the Shinn Family who owns the Hornets? My mom’s maiden name is Shinn, but I’m not getting my hopes up. My mom nor my Grandma Shinn ever spoke about an Uncle George that owned a professional basketball team. But if by chance we are related…or if the very kind Mr. George Shinn wants to adopt a Shinn Family from Hawaii for the night…the five of us would be glad to sit in Uncle George’s luxury box and catch up on old times. 🙂
