hi guys, great to catch up with the cousins again, as per usual the boys are all rough and tumble, and just enjoying being boys, rory you do us proud with your determination and logan was very impressed with how you managed the bike on the walkway, he loved telling everyone the story of the cat from his school trip - typical boy eh all blood and guts with lots of details !!!!  We loved catching up with all of you, next time rory who will have more hair - you or Mikayla I still bet it will be you, cos logan had none for well over a year.  I have seen the photos of you and the boys and Mikayla on here, and I still think you and Mikayla look loads alike - must be the hairdo I think !!!!  great to catch up, take care  lots of love jason, wendy, logan and mikayla

Hi Leigh and Rory
Sounds like you're having fun in the Naki.  Let me know when you're back up in Auckland as I've finished work now so can come and visit.  11 days till the baby is due!  We've had a night of false contractions when we thought 'this is it' but it obviously wasn't.
Rory will be my inspiration for behaving in a dignified manner through the labour.  Hopefully I can do him proud.
Love Cindy

Crikey dick!!  Just reading about your adventures makes me tired!  You are all obviously making the most of being with family and friends and it is quite exciting reading about what you have  been up to on your holidays.  Today was our total blobby day and Korie took great delight in destroying Jamies old stereo with the hammer!!  I thought he would unscrew the screws and try to figure out how it worked but after 4 or 5 screws he took it out onto the deck and smashed it - great release of energy!  Tomorrow we have Caid coming to stay for the day and night and hope to go and see Ice Age 3, we havn't been to the movies for so long, I think I'm more excited than Korie is!  Anyway take care everyone and catch you when you arrive back home. Love Kathryn and Korie xox

Hey matey, we missed your happy welcome in class this morning.  There was obvious dissapointment on Kories face when we entered Room 3.  I had told him that you were not coming to school today however I think he was hoping I was wrong!  Anyway have a super dooper holiday and maybe we can catch up over the break for a play date!  Love to you all from Kathryn xox
PS. Now I know why you laughed at me when I asked if you could eat what was in the question box!!!
