Guy Fawkes.

Celebrations across the road at The Smiths house tonight. I wasn't planning on going because I'd heard it was for the Youth and Faith in God kids.
Half the ward was there. If Hubba wasn't standing at the door looking like a jailed child about to go to bed, I would not have gone, but I felt sorry for her so we dressed up all warm and headed over the street.




Dear Shaily,
A shade darker would help.
Love,
Aunty.

2 of the bishops.



Enjoy the hideous random shots of members of the ward.












We're celebrating again tomorrow night when The Livian is home. Papa Greg dropped off Hubba's crackers earlier, we're going to save those ones for Christmas time with Rellyphant is here.

remember remember the 5th of november.

guy fawkes had a plot to overthrow parliament, and thats kind of how i feel about this american election. we elected a bunch of guy fawkes. they have literally said all they want to do is 1) overthrow the president, and 2) bring about the end of the world so the rapture can happen.

americans are insane, and i just want to go have fireworks in another country.

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!
