My little brother Nick Knabb and his wonderful fiance Rizel Sahagun delivered a darling little girl named Hailey on November 12th, 2013. Nick was based out of Hawaii while he was in the Marines and met Rizel on the island during one of his breaks. Nick fell promptly, deeply, madly in love with Rizel - who can blame him, she is awesome. Luckily Rizel has a great big family in Hawaii so they have tons of support - we're so happy for them... and a little jealous!

My mom has been grandma'ing vicariously through pictures and Skype, but it's time for her to hold her first grandchild in her arms and get to know her new extended family! Also, she hasn't had a vacation in a couple of decades - she deserves a little Hawaii time! Added bonus - she gets to see her son again, it's been a few years!

Mom (grandma) works hard to support herself as well as her disabled sister Sharon (aka the best aunt ever!). All of her income goes towards maintaining their household, so there isn't a lot to spare.

Nick and Rizel are both working on completing school while working full time (when they're not doing the whole new parent thing!) so it may be awhile before they land on the mainland again.

The overall cost of the ticket to Hawaii will be roughly $1,300-$1,600, but I added a small amount for meals and helping with some of the missed income from her time off work. 

Let's get this adorable grandbaby and her loving grandma together!
