Whanau Day celebrating 16 years of Shaily.
Someone ate the birthday cupcakes before we sang happy birthday.
No one owned up.
Shaily ended up with a candle in a jar and a cupcake that Rome licked right before the singing began.

Told my Parentals they need a bigger house. This was only half of us and that was enough. I suggested they turn the area under their pergola into a dining room.
Sister is coming next weekend. Her plane lands at the same time as the All Black kick off.
My priorities are with The All Blacks.
Can't believe they lost last night to Australia of all countries .. and Argentina beat South Africa. Almost convinced I've warped to a parallel universe where losers are suddenly winners.

New video at Family Films.

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!
