Other:2009 Christmas
Posted by: Debbie McCrae on Apr 19 2010 14:56

Well 2009 saw us back in New Zealand having some great family and friends time!!

The McCrae family boxing day meet went well, with everyone enjoying themselves and marvelling at how quickly the children of the clan have grown!! The kites were a hit again, but the cool weather drove us all home earlier than normal. I'm not sure how Wendy manages to organise this event each year, but she does a fantastic job Laughing

This Christmas the Perkins side lent a family beach house and stayed there together to enjoy all that Christmas has to offer - lots of laughing, swimming, children making Santa muffins, presents and food.

Leaving Palmerston North we travelled up to Taupo where we'd rented Wiley's Cottage. Place was fantastic and we were joined by Pete, Wendy and the kids. Fantastic holiday time. Pete and his family left us and we were joined by Carissa's girls for New Years - brilliant.

Flying out from Auckland was different for us, but it gave us an opportunity to say hi and bye to family we hadn't seen in yonks Smile

2010 Christmas will probably see us celebrating in Melbourne or Sidney.

Other:Christmas Gathering of the McCraes
Posted by: Debbie McCrae on Jan 27 2009 06:39

The trip back to New Zealand was great fun - full of family and friendsCool

This year the Palmerston North McCrae met up at the Ashhurst Domain for a family fun day and this year we were joined by Uncle Malcolm and Aunty Glennys and their family....fantastic to catch up.

While we were there we celebrated Michaels 16th....singing Happy Birthday with great gusto!!!

Kit and Geoff giant kite was a massive hit with both the kids and the adults....but what really got everyone was the petrol generator they bought along to boil the jug for a cup of tea!!!

A big hit with all the males was Pete's new Impala Ute.....fantastic piece of machinery that everyone just had to touch.

The following day was my Dad's birthday so those of us in the country made his favourite meal and turned up with all the necessary trimming...and once again we found ourselves singing Happy Birthday.

But all good things close eventually and on the Monday we found ourselves doing the final catch up with friends in Wellington prior to flying back to Melbourne.

Plans for the 2009 Christmas have already been made - the Perkins clan is camping out at an NZ beach for the duration....inviting family and friends to join them...should be fun Laughing
