Elizabeth Puni's 21st

We were invited to a 21st birthday last night for Elizabeth Puni (Sa'aga's daughter), a young girl we use to see and talk to in Lalovaea, Samoa, when we were living at Mama's house. Little did we know that she has been living here in the USA attending University. It happens that their family goes to the same church as Fati and Vai and had recognised Madison when he went with them to church last weekend. We also got to meet Erika Puni and his wife Maxine and their two year old daughter (more family on Matt's side).

Overall there was lots to eat (yummy Samoan food), items performed by Elizabeth and a few family members as well as some line dancing by the locals and families - that was fun to watch!

Happy 21st Birthday Elizabeth!

Myra's 7th Brithday

Myra, Maddy, Sina and Melody

Maddy was invited to Myra's 7th birthday at Chucky Cheese and didn't he have so much fun! They played lots and lots of games, ate pizza and a lovely nice ice cream birthday cake and then before you know it i.e. 3 hours later, we left for their home and spent the evening playing card games with their friends and families. Thanks to Vai and Fati for the lovely birthday party and for putting up with us all evening.

Back To School

It's back to school for Maddy this week and he was very excited to see his friends again. He has grown so much over the Christmas period and is already outgrowing his clothes we bought him two months ago. His seasonal allergies have been playing up again and has had a cough for a few weeks now. Apparently the winter season brings his cough on more so the doctor says.

I have finished my temporary seasonal job and now back at home twiddling my thumbs, thinking of what to do next. I put in an application for a more permanent part time day position as well so we shall wait and see. If not, its back to household chores and sorts and taking care of Matt and Maddy.

Thanks to Daddy, I am going to Hawaii for four days to Ramona's wedding next week. It's going to be very informal, simple but sweet wedding with about 30 guests. I am looking forward to seeing her again after 5 years.

Happy New Year to all our family in New Zealand and Kangarooland, hope you're enjoying your holidays - Love Us xxox
