My spiritual level hasn't been all that great, but the fact that I have a loving heavenly father to help me come back and never gives up on me is just the best feeling ever. I've moved my records to the singles ward for quite some time but since the move I haven't been as active as I should be. This past sunday I finally had the blessing and the opportunity to attend ALL meetings of the singles ward thanks to my sister's (Lupi & Ashley) for the extra push and encouragement to stay, and partake of his goodness. I know alot of the YSA's have looked down on the SL2nd ward, but to tell you the truth if they would just give the ward just one try they would absolutely LOVE IT. I've never felt the spirit so strong throughout the meetings I LOVE the feeling and hope that the YSA that are still attending the family ward comes and partake of the goodness in which I've been receiving I'm sooo thankful for this gospel and the understanding that I have, I'm FAAARRRR from perfect, but I'm willing to strive to be a better person. I LOVE my Savior and I'm grateful for his atonement for this I am able to repent of my wrong, need I say more the church is true and HE LIVES!! I wish sunday can be everyday.
Still no clue what the surprise is "DOWN BY THE BANKS" Waiting patiently 11/14/09
I've been slacking on blogging about the happenings in my life, I guess you can say I'm a busy woman LMBO (or at least I think I am LOL). Anyways last week saturday I was able to attend disney on ice with my little sister and the diva's (Melenaite, Ruby, Morena, Ailini), and Aiona (Liki) her daughter Sioana, and niece Beeps. Can I just tell you that I've been waiting ALL week to attend this hence the fact that this would be my first time at the Energy Solutions building and attending disney on ice. So therefore I was like a little kid in a candy store all excited for the show.
The cute thing about this whole "SURPRISE"<<<<-------according to my nieces (something my lil sister Silia does for her girls, she doesn't tell them where they're going until they get there)and that's something I plan on doing with my kids when that day comes. Anyways Silia and the fun bus came on over and swooped up Ailini and I and off we went to the energy solutions building. So we get there and we go inside to pick up our tickets, we had an hour to kill I believe so the girls start running around then we tell 'em to sit down, next thing you know you hear the girls singing down by the banks of the hanky panky so dang cute, cause by this time the beautiful little girls have caught the attention of the workers and people that were waiting to, I KNOW the other kids wanted to join LOL. Well the time came, to scan our tickets to go in the girls getting a little more antsy as the guy scans our ticket he say's who's ticket is this they can't go in, I hear a quick response "Peanut" (Ruby) says oh that's not my ticket LOL it was too funny and cute at the same time cause I can sense the excitement yet they still have no clue why we're there. So we climb to flight of stairs (which with a bad knee is sooo not good LOL), and the minute you walk in it's disney princess EVERYWHERE, I couldn't help to laugh when I hear the little voice of "Peanut" say to my sister "MOM ARE WE IN DISNEYLAND" such a cute little remark and I hear No peanut you'll see, talk bout souvenir's galore LOL, and the prices were outrages LOL just wish I had the funds to get the girls a few little things but it's all good they understand (I hope). Well we finally make our way to our seats and WOW is all I can say seeing the castle on the ice was to dang cute, but what was even cuter was hearing the girls scream their little guts out when tinker bell came out on the ice, such a wonderful show. I think this totally needs to be a traditional event...Thanks Silia for letting me sidebust with you and the diva's Love your guts until next time!! P.s. Can't forget the laughs with Aiona freakin' crack up!!WOOHOO WE LOVE IT 7 Dwarfs
Beautiful Silia and Ruby Morena Lahi & Morena Leka Me & my Diva's again with Ailini Silia with the Diva's (dunno what's up the Lini LOL)
First witch we found...cat chasing a mouse under the witch's dress Witch in the boat Looking at the witch in the boat...and the DUCKS Melenaite, Ailini, Ruby, Me, Morena si'i Writing down where we found the witches The girls favorite witch in the witchy-poo outhouse reading the paper LOL The girls with the witch hula-hooping To dang cute a Witch slammed into the building WOOHOO we FINISHED!!
So I decided thursday night that I would go with Silia and the diva's to go on a Witch Hunt at Gardener Village. And so I sent out a text message to one of my co-workers (Merridy) to please tell the boss that I will be using PTO for FRIDAY (Oct 30, 2009), I mean I thought I deserved the break to and Lord KNOWS I sooo needed it, especially with the knee problems and whatnot. Anyways so come early morning friday I kinda slept in til 8 a.m, only cause mom came into the room to ask me if I'm going to work, I was quick to respond NO I'm going on a witch hunt with silia and the girls and I'm gonna take Lini with me LOL. With that being said I jumped up and jumped into the shower and got ready, funny thing is sinai's twin boys (Brydan & Gideon) was excited until I said to them sorry boys this is only a girls adventure and all I can here is AWWWW that's not fair. Well I didn't quite fall for that so I said boiz maybe next year for now it's just a girls day!! Anyways we (Lini & I) headed on over to meet up Silia and her triplets at her house and head on over to find the witches. Man all I have to say is my little sister is such an AMAZING mother especially finding little things to do with her girl's to keep 'em close I LOVE how she is with her girls, never seems to surprise me with the little activities she has with them, and I'm soo glad she invited me and Lini to go with them on this witch hunt (I wanna be just like her, when I have kids:)!!). Anyways the minute we got there it was FREEZING but that didn't stop us, this being my first time there I FELL in LOVE with the place such a CUTE place. We had found all the witches and when we were done we headed on over to the bakery for our $.25 cookies along with a donut, muffin top and other goodies LOL!! We then headed over to Chili's afterwards for some real food especially the paradise pie:)...this day was sooo worth taking it off, Thanks little sis for allowing me to join you and my beautiful nieces ON THIS WITCH hunt can't wait til the next hunt, this time we'll bring the boiz!!
Silia's turn with the girl's and the finished list "WILL CAST SPELLS FOR CHOCOLATE" Love it, Me and My beautiful little sis!! Me and my babygirl (Namesake Morena) YAY we're done...and ready for our cookies:)!!

Filimoe'atu FAMILY not all but some!! Mariam, Ann, Sinai, Me, Sela, Ruby October 23, 2009
This is the day we've ALL been waiting for to come the annual fili corn maze get together, well at least I do anyways. Last year we went with those who were able to attend, and same goes to this year it was soo good to see more come out this year just hoping that next year ALL will be able to make it. For those of you who don't know how we roll it's pretty deep LOL no but for real, we LOVE to laugh, love to clown, and can be a tad bit loud when we all together put that all together you get nothing but CRAZY ideas and stories LOL. So I've been KNOWN for being on my knees in the haunted house or the haunted corn maze anything haunted you can guarentee me on the floor I just get sooo clumsy and you'll see a few pic's that I'll be posting up.
Anyways to start off the evening we had planned to all meet up at the Lapuaho household to have chili dogs or just plain chili however you prefer, and to say prayer before we head on out to the corn maze, we'd like to make this a tradition so the kids have something to look forward to every year and so far it's been the laugh of the year every year we've gone. When we got to the corn maze everyone was all hyped and ready to go in and get the maps punched so we can hurry and hit up the Haunted corn maze part. I my group for the regular maze was Sela Kauvaka, Ana Lapuaho, Lupi and I. Funny thing was my sister Sinai called it the YSA group cause it was just us and what made this even more funnier cause instead of finding the numbers in order we were sooo finding them randomly see pics below LOL MY GROUP in the Corn maze Ann, Me, Sela, Ruby It was pretty funny cause we'd hear Silia and her group shout we found it and we'd go running over there sayin' ok woohoo, it was funny cause I could hear Kelly say y'all mine as well go backwards since your not going in order LMBO. It's always good fun to see the kids have fun let alone the YSA, and the ADULTS! We finally finished up the regular corn maze and we come out greeted by all those who have finished before us Phil, ash, crys and there group. And all I can hear was Ashley sayin' I was waiting for you guys so we can go to the Haunted maze cause I love to see y'alls reaction of the monsters we were like yeah yeah lets go stand in line as we were standing in line there was a group of palangi's standing there and mind you I'm minding my own business talking to Lupi when all of a sudden I see a shadow walk past me OMG is all I can think of and I started screaming as if I saw a ghost I kinda pushed some people aside to get away from the guy I can't help it it's natural I just pick up and move hahaha, well then it didn't help that the guy taking the tickets were even more uglier that I started screaming in his face I actually started to run into the tunnel when the guys like I NEED your ticket LOL, so I walk back with my eyes covered with my hands and my cousin ash askin' me where's your ticket and me sayin' it's in my pocket as ashleys trying to grab my ticket out of my pocket I'm slowly movin' through the tunnel hoping I don't come face to face with an ugly monster (you would think I would be fine knowing that it's not real) but uhhh negative everything in my book is real LOL. As we go through the maze the girls start walking faster and me with my jacked up knee is trying to keep up with them when we come to this barn looking thing I'm thinkin' in my head this can't be good, as we go through I believe they were clowns I don't know cause half the time my eyes are either closed or I'm just trying to rush through so I don't get chased by anything well the clown chases lupi one end and I'm goin' through the side hecka funny dodging the ugly lookin' clowns, anyways we come out and it's a graveyard OH MY HELL is all I'm screaming with some not so nice words LOL as the girls go through I'm like trying to catch my breath when I hear something behind me I take off running as clumsy as I am I can feel the un level floor and my feet start to lose balance and I go sliding forward like I'm sliding to home base bwahahahaa yeah with my camera in hand thinking I was going to catch lupi, or even ash fall flat on there face ummmm it gets worse the girls are ahead of me (Lupi, Ash, Ann) and Sela next to me askin morena are you ok, I'm like can y'all help me Lupi comes rushing to me I'm thinking she's coming to help me up ummmm WRONG homegirl comes to me grabs the camera out of my hands and starts snapping pics of me in the dirt to make it worse Sela was helping me up when Ash was like no SEL keep her down for the pic, and what does sela do?? she pushes me back down and you'll see her posing in the pic LOL, and this is why these guys love having me in there group cause I'm constantly on the floor no lie, and we can laugh for days after the fact...they can ALL testify I can guarentee that. Ok so you think that was the last time I fell ummmmm NO try I fell like 3 more times after that. Good thing Lupi didn't have the photo's of those this fall in particular I kinda wish she did cause I actually had some heros LOL, so we were running through the corn field I really don't remember what part it was I just remember hearing the CHAINSHAW and you best believe I'm not paying attention to NO ONE or NOTHING not even my surroundings LOL. When I saw the chainsaw guy go after Lupi I thought I was clear...WRONG another one came out of the field and went after me and Sela poor sela I felt back because I must've grabbed her and tossed her aside to I can pass and while I did that I lost my balance and fell back into the corn field landing on my back still hella screaming for help and laughing at the same time while I was down on my back I can hear people then I look up and all I can hear was Ta'ahine, Ta'ahine let us help you OH MY HELL I almost thought I was in heaven surrounded by so many guys LMBO how come I threw my hands over my faces nodding my head I'm fine I'm fine LOL, all these hands reaching out to get me up I looked and I see Lupi coming back hella rolling. We continue through the maze and reach this black balloon looking thing I'm like OMG don't tell me we have to crawl throught that when ASH was like no i think we need to walk through it well ash was the leader and all of a sudden she disappears LMBO homegirl hella fell on her back in the balloon thing cause an ugly monster looking monkey popped up infront of her LMBO hella funny at least I wasn't the only one that fell in aye, it was funny watching ash cause she was fighting with my 12 yr old nephew to make him go in the scary parts gotta LOVE IT well we finally reach the end HELLA laughing cause I'm covered in dirt and sweaty. Boy was it a memorable night we continue to the fambam to have cocoa and donuts and I can hear everyone clowning on me sayin I looked like one of the victims that survived the twin towers covered in all that dirt good times with the family love them sooo much, I told the sisters I think I'ma have to retire these haunted things and they all said NOOOO you can't LOL hope you enjoyed this blog as much as I enjoyed falling in the corn maze makin' the memories last a century LOL. LOVE MY FILI FAMBAM can't wait till the next gathering.
