Getting over Xmas feasting .....

Yet again I have over-indulged this Xmas! But the food was soooooo amazing!
We had such a great day, shared with family and friends.

We had marinated bbq prawns (above) and moreton bay bugs (below). So delicious!!

Unfortunately, we have had a lot of rain :-( but as the weather is still so humid, it hasn't stopped as lazing in the pool. Here we are enjoying a sunny moment :-)

Hope you all had a fantastic Xmas day and are enjoying the holiday season!!

Have a nice break.

You love lounging by the pool, don't you Patsy? It looks really relaxing, but I keep feeling that it might be pretty scary.

All that food looks amazing! I hope Patsy got to eat some of that yummy food, cos my Humans didn't really let me eat much of the awesome stuff.

I don't know why but my mom is drooling looking at the food pictures!
Having a nice time in the pool sure is a pawesome way to spend a day!
Kisses and hugs

Looks beautiful!!!! I'm glad you are feasting! Even if it is in the hot sun! My friend is spending New Year's Eve in Australia and she keeps talking about how excited she is for it!!

What is better than over doing for the Christmas? Over doing for the new year fun. That pool makes the mom really wish she was some place where it wasn't so cold and she could jump in the water.
Wishing you and your family the best for the new year coming!
