Christmas Time & Super Fun Nights.

The christmas tree is up and I'm unintentionally rocking MAC colours.

Still got my icicles/crack pipes I bought back from the US. None broke last year, I'm expecting some to break this year because of where the tree is situated.

The topper.

Blue and white lights make the house cold. It's a relief on a hot summer evening. All my tree is missing is white spiral candy canes that I got from WalMart one year.

We started a super fun night list to place in a jar and randomly pull out. There are only 3 participants and the 'fun nights' range from staying home and sitting in darkness to inviting ourselves to someones house for potluck. We'll be placing ward members names in a jar too for random selection on nights like this. We've also decided to record it all on video.
I just need a Flip Mino because Tashi ran over mine and smashed it a few years ago.

Dear Hubba,
Believe you me when I say you are going to Kohanga tomorrow. Even if you scratch my legs to the bone in an attempt to stay home, it's not going to work.
Me in the next room.
PS. Stop crying and go to sleep.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
