Trip down south and some at-home-ness

Well hey there peeps! I've been away for a while because I got to go away down south (Christchurch - Maruia Springs - Nelson and around Nelson area - Canterbury) with the hubster for a whole week! yipee!
We went originally for Carl's old flat mate's wedding and made it worthwhile by also making it our anniversary holiday and also visited his brother - two of his kids we hadn't met yet so that was cool!

If you want to see all the pics check out this link.
There are like 104 so yeh I'm not gonna upload them all here obviously!!
I thought I had lost them actually when I compressed the only copy of them for uploading too small!! Lucky for me the camera guy in town retrieved most of them off the camera *phew*!! I good reminder to BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS!!

So now Christmas looms.
(I made these little treats for my neighbours seeing as I seem to be super organised this year!)

We are celebrating Christmas tomorrow with my family seeing as they aren't going to be around on the actual day. Also today has been hubster's birthday so I've been cooking my heart out!
(here's a pic of Carl with his present of 4kg of jet plane lollies!)

I tried to make a pavlova for Christmas day. FLOP. Big time. Totally burnt on the bottom! Needless to say I will be visiting the supermarket!

(I did manage to cook some yummy pork ribs/wedges/fresh beans for his birthday dinner! And a yummy Coffee Cake!)
Anyway that's what I've been up to - all refreshed from holiday and ready to take on the last little bit of 2010 :-)
I hope you're all ready for it too! xo
