This year we were so excited as Aunty Ang, Uncle Mikey and Issy were going to be spending Christmas with us and Phil was going to have off for the first time EVER!
Typical in the hotel world, Phil got the phone call 2 weeks prior to our Aussie families arrival that they needed him to go to the Big Island for the holidays and work... Ho HUM! Initially, we were very disappointed, but we adjusted our plans and all flew to the Big Island for 10 days. While Phil had to work, we played and somehow he still managed to get Christmas Day off. Woop Woop.
Phil, the kids and I spent a few days at The Fours Seasons, Hualalai before Ang, Mikey & Issy arrived over. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and in typical Four Seasons fashion... we were spoilt rotten. We enjoyed quality time together, swimming, playing and eating good food! Our room was amazing and was even equipped with the most gorgeous outdoor shower! Total bliss!
After our few days in the hotel, we then moved into our villa where the Leckies joined us. Our villa was just a gorgeous setting for our Christmas Holiday... we had our own pool/spa and views to die for!
We absolutely loved our "makeshift" Christmas on the Big Island with family and couldn't have imagined it any way...
Lesson learned.... Stay Calm and Carry on :)
