the boy is back in town!!!
and the current
spontaneous buzz
is synchronised-car-dancing,
to whatever's blasting on the airwaves:
today it's a re-mix of
the James Bond theme..
*go on, turn up your sound and
dance like no one's watching!!!*


  1. Love the car dancing...and I love seeing how happy and relaxed D and R are...they were sweet little kids... but the Sunny Bay move and all that went with it have helped them grow into confident, sparkly young adults. Well done Mama!

    D18 is studying up the road in The Big Smoke which is the biggest city in NZ: cryptic? moi? *grin* X

    funny, we were picking up the lads (J12 and S10) from their rafting race this arvo (forgot the camera) and R14 and i were sitting on the grass after snarffing (yup, it has two Fs) a BBQ sausie, and one of the pre-teen lads (who was kinda flirting with R14) said, "Gosh you and your mum look exactly the same!"
    at which we simultaneously looked at each other with a raised-eyebrows "DUH!" look lol X

    Cool pics. We do car dancing too and very loud car singing. It can be quite dangerous!!

  7. *love* this pic. your kids seem so comfortable around you, it's inspiring (american teenagers are brainwashed to hate their adults), or maybe it's just a testimony to your fabulous parenting. anyways, they will love having these pics when they're grown.

    Mamabird, it's a testimony to here fabulous parenting - Kiwikids can be just as ornery! :)

  9. Hi Kate,
    Tell D that he looks so like the guy from "Flight of the Conchords"!!! Cool glasses! What a thrill for him to get the scholarship also- read it in the latest newsletter! Well done and congrats to him. Love E

  10. What sweet kids you've got there, Kate :) Enjoy his visit :)

  11. What a perfect moment ... laughter and fun seems to follow you endlessly!

  12. Your children are CRAZY... did you do this to them?

    Bulldog sometimes asks them to be a little less “Michael Jackson” cos the car gets its own momentum, rather freaky at 100km/h X

    yeah, i still get the paparazzi-look sometimes, but i *know* they're gonna look back and be glad i sneaky-NINJA'd them X

    my mum used to use that word, i always thought it was just a shortening of "ordinary"... but *lookit*: ya learn a new thing every day lol X

    lol, no jokes, Jemaine is his nickname at uni. and guess what? Bulldog also found the *scholarship announcement* in the local rag, WOW, ten seconds of fame huh. it was very well-earned, he was Head Down for the whole of the last term last year X

    thanks so much, it's turning into a magical week here X

    well, i do live with all these sparkly peeps... X

    bwahahaha, i have NO idea where they get this kinda crazee from... actually i'm blaming Bulldawg. gosh i miss you, when's our next rendezvous? X


katie's chatterbox - ha! i think that's funny! but i'm sKATEy like that.
