McCarthy Christmas Wrap Up

I know that now is probably the time to be posting about the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012, but in a fashionably late :-) manner I am going to share with you our Christmas celebrations over the last few weeks.

Lets start with a quick wander through Sydney, I happened to be there for work at the beginning of December and only had my phone to snap a few photos.

Our Christmas Party on the 16th was a success (well we think so any way!), we had a great time and we had just over 60 guests join us throughout the night. 

Then we managed a quick break in Gloucester at a place called Damn it Getaways, the first photo is the view from our cabin. It was the perfect spot for some R & R and it is pet friendly so Boss came along.

Christmas Day was in Sydney with my family. We ate lots as usual and then we got creative and decorated some Christmas baubles. We do this every year (mostly) and it is great to look back on our balls from the previous years, especially the kids as their efforts just get better and better. Hubby created a bull dog out of his! Blue and white, can you tell who his Rugby League team is?

Our second Christmas was in Wellington (NSW not NZ), again we ate lots and lots and my stack of pressies just got bigger and bigger, I got so spoilt!

........ and that's a wrap! 

I aim to spend some time catching up on all my fave blogs over the next few days, I can't wait to see what you have all been up to.

See you next year!
