Christmas Eve

Christmas eve was cut short when I got all sick. I was a crap guest tonight, but I had to come home. It was just not happening. The food was good, but I can't even look at the pictures right now without wanting to purge.

There was more food, but I was too sick.
Tyler had to drive us home!
Cupcakes from The Henry's.
Better than Sugar Queen.

Hubba opened 3 gifts today while the choir (Shai and Ty) complained about the amount of gifts she got compared to how many they got. Nan reminded them that she is only 3 and Christmas is over for them because of age.
Thanks Aunty Ness for the abacus.
Her counting: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 9 10 9 10 9 10 9 10 etc.

Secret Santa from The Reid-Solomonas.
Not so secret if it's intended Harriett!
It's a money pot and I love it.

Still sick.
Back to bed.

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!
