A McCarthy Christmas

Hello my lovely friends,

welcome to Christmas at our house!

Not many words today, just lots of photos


We are right at the end of our busy period.

The last day of school and work before Christmas

and our Christmas Party is tomorrow night

We are praying for good weather

We invite lots of friends and family for drinks and nibbles

We make it very casual as we know it is a busy time of the year and we invite people to pop in for the whole night or just stop in to say hello on their way to an event or on the way home!

We don't ask for RSVP's

It makes it a little tricky to cater but that's ok, we love it


Tomorrow I have the day to set up and decorate for the party, I am very excited


The Wood fire pizza oven is ready

 and we have had a trial run

I will try to remember to take photos


Ooops, I lied there are more words than I expected



Merry Christmas
