Just popped in to say hello to you all.  We are keeping well and warm.  Korie says hope your feeling well.  Jayden-Rei is growing so fast, he is crawling and pulling himself up on furniture and has a mouth full of teeth breaking through!  Under NO circumstances should you put your fingers in his mouth, he is a mini guillotine!  Korie went to stay with Nana and Grandad Morrison in week one of the holidays but came home after 4 nights with a tummy bug, hoping to get to the movies this week.  Anyway must move on I have jobs to do, take care and hugs to you all, love from the Morrisons xox

Hey Rory, what a lovely surprise for me when I went to work today and met the lovely new office worker.... none other than your Granny Gardiner!! Very cool to talk to her in the staffroom at morning tea. I'm sure she'll enjoy working at what we call the "Best Intermediate in the world!" and I'll be able to keep up to date with all your family's news. Hope the taranaki winter isn't too harsh for you guys,Best wishes Zane and Julie

So nice to catch up after all this time, sorry I missed you when you popped in Lee but would have been eating my way round Europe at the time. Lukily we walked our way round Europe as well so not too many tell tale signs!!!We have a bag of money for you to collect so just pop in when you can, also boys are still invited to make a pizza at some stage so if they are keen we can work that out.
The best from us all here,
Cheers Sandy.

It's great to see that things are going so well and I liked the bit about Rory being a "Survivor" and can understand that there is still a long road to go so hopefully it passes quickly without too many hiccups. I would be interested to know the date that you will be in Akld for your MRI as I too have to be in there at some stage and would be stoked if they matched. I will keep an eye out for a date and will let you know if they coincide. I would be really keen to see you. Keep up the fabulous work and lots of warm fuzzies from Tangowahine. B

Hi Leigh, I just read your post on the pediactrics brain tumour support website. I hope you don't mind me contacting you but I too live in New Zealand and my son (Brad) was dx with an Oligodendroglioma BT nearly 4 years ago. I was wondering if you know of any other children with an Oligo BT as they are rare in children and I would love to talk to someone else here in New Zealand who has a child with this same kind of tumour. Please contact me at if you know of anyone like Brad. I would be forever grateful. On a differnt note...what a great website you have made for Rory. Credit to you. I hope he is doing well and exceeding all expectations in the very best of ways. Good luck to your family and the very best of wishes.
Kindest of regards Fiona Winter

Hello!!  God I feel awful!!  Just realised we still ahve not sent off Rorys Birthday present!!!  It will arrive I promise!!
Sounds like you have all had lots of adventures...again!!  Never a dull moment in your household!!  Colt looks gorgeous! Actually you all look great in the family photo.  
Kody has lost 2 teeth these holidays bringing the grand total to 10.  but only about 4 1/2 adult teeth have grown to replace them so he has quite a gappy smile at the moment!!  I have become a professional tooth puller.
Our school holidays have passed very uneventful,  One day I counted 6 children running around the house.  Kody went and stayed the night at Devins house and came home with purple hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He is due for a haircut and it will wash I keep telling myself.  Rugby season starts next weekend, the boys are looking forward to it.
So just a short sweet writeup today, I need to get back to study (while watching the Royal Wedding of course!!) Take care and dont forget to look out in your letter box for a special belated birthday parcel!!  Lots of love From The Johnstons!!!  xxxxx
