The two Carters ...

This Carter was born today (I think) in Australia to my cousin Daniel and his wife Nikita.

This Carter was born 2 weeks ago and was in SCUBU at the hospital until yesterday. He was scheduled to be born 3 weeks from now, but he came early. His Mum is my cousin Mere.
We really need to start sending eachother memo's on kids names.
We already have 2 Liams, 2 Corbins, 2 Joshuas, 2 Toris and 2 Taylors.
These two bump our count to 72 great grandkids for my grandparents.
3 great-great-grandkids with 1 still cooking.

There's only 1 Carlos.

.. and she's all we need!

Re: Larry
First flush of the catheter tomorrow.
He's been excited all day today because his Mom is coming for 3 weeks at Christmas with his niece.
We're looking forward to the visit!

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!
