Hello December.

First day of December = The Advent Calendar.

Tyler had her Manu Poi assessment at school on Friday.
The whole thing was amazing. I was very moved by it all.

After assessment.
She got an A+ by the way.
I made my Mum come with me to it. She said Friday was a good day for her.
Two things made her proud that day.
1. Tyler
2. The red lights on her Christmas tree.
That's balance.

Avi stayed the night last night. I'm pretty sure she hates Hubba because Hubba loves her too much and always wants to cuddle her. Hubba wasn't allowed give me a cuddle goodnight last night.
Hubba wasn't allowed to sleep in my bed with us and Friday nights Hubba knows she's allowed to sleep with Mum. Hubba wasn't allowed to help her when she fell over.
Hubba is glad she is not staying tonight.

12 hours of sleep and looks this cute at wake up.
She's a fat ball of delicious .. and a little bit of agro.
Mitchy commented yesterday that she doesn't understand why Hubba and Avi are so white compared to her other kids. I told her it was because they were both supposed to be mine.

I miss California this time of the year. New Zealand is so bland with it's Christmas celebrations and the best thing we have in town is the huge Santa statue on top of the New World Supermarket. He's been around since as early as I can remember.
I think he's the same Santa that Fantasyland use to rock when it was open.

This month is going to be a good one.

Those are some cute pics of the sisters.

When Daniel was little I used to love him a little too much too. I would always pull him around on a blanket I had tied around my waist so he could come with me where ever I went :) He hated it and constantly cried.

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!
