Happy Birthday Avilicious

Jan 18th - 2016.

Jan 18th - 2017.

Back to reality for Shaily today. Her summer holiday has ended.
Just in time for Avi's birthday bash.

With big sister Nessa.

With Dad.

With big sister Tyler.

Rome was AWOL.
Jeston was stuck to his device.
Mum was in the kitchen and Avi just didn't want a photo with Hubba.

The Birthday Girl

At this point she was over her high chair and everyone around her. Hub's was the killjoy who blew out her candle during the final birthday words .. happy birthday to you.

Happy Birthday My Avis! I love you more than your sisters .. maybe a grain more than Hubs.
Just tricking Hubs. Except for yesterday. You were an imbecile yesterday.

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!
