Wedding of the year.

This happened this morning.
He slept here with me last night and we woke up and his hair was long. He was picked up this morning to prep for the wedding and was dropped off to his Mum later in the morning. I arrived at theirs around mid-day to a boy with no more long hair. After a some F words and tears, I asked him if he liked it and he said, "it's cool".
He is not my baby anymore without his hair, but my big boy now.
Don't know what it is, but every time a boy gets his haircut he becomes an a-hole that day. Prior example, Drayden-Reid.

His Mum was married this afternoon. It's been a hectic 4 weeks, but we got there.

A short and sweet ceremony and she became Mrs. Heather.

Their blended family. May I introduce Kavarn, or as we call him, Brudda.
He is Killy's 8 year old son who we have welcomed into our lives. I take my hat off to Tyler who has been raising him this past year. She's his bestfriend.

The first time ever that all my Mothers grandkids have been in the same place at the same time.
19 grandkids. 2 great-grand kids and Killy and Shaily's boyfriend Taine.

The Bride & Groom.

The Wedding Party.
Probably the worst groomsmen I've ever shot.
Because they were drunk and annoying.
This is why I don't like to shoot weddings.

Mr & Mrs Heather.

Props to the cake makers Lisa Edwards & Janene Tihema (both family).
They went over and beyond what I had imagined and deserve the kudos. They managed to incorporate Tyler's favorite chocolate into each cake. They were fantastic.

... and our Heather baby has been cooking for going on 10 weeks.

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!
