Christmas Town

Hey,

Last night my family and I celebrated my Papaw’s 70th birthday by going to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens! It was SO much fun!! There were over eight MILLION lights!! Here are some pictures that I took from the park. Some of them are kind of blurry.Β πŸ˜•Β We arrived at the park around 3:30 and left around 9:30. I provided a map below so you can track where we went.

This place was France.

img_7383
From left to right: Lily (my cousin), Abby (another cousin), Me, Maddox, Matthew, and Micah. This was “The North Pole”.

There was a 50 foot christmas tree with so many lights that correlated with the music. Β This place is called O’ Tannnenbaum.

In “The North Pole” they had a “snow” machine that blew out bubbles. All of the little kids LOVED it.

Has anyone else noticed how creepy this elf looks? These next three pictures are from New France.

This is France at night. The theme for this part if the park was, The Twelve Days Of Christmas.

Sorry, this one is a little blurry.
img_7499
This was the most BEAUTIFUL thing ever!!!! My favorite light arrangement in the park. πŸ˜€

 

We had so much fun at Busch Gardens! I think it was my ONLY time I have been to Busch Gardens and not ride anything. πŸ˜€ Thank you for reading this and have a blessed day.

Thanksgiving

Hey,

This Thanksgiving my grandparents came over and celebrated with us. It was so much fun and we were all stuffed. πŸ˜€

img_3683
Mom made Mac-N-Cheese. It was delicious.

 

img_3695
Grandma and I made these. They were okay, they would have been better if the green beans had cooked.

 

img_3686

img_3700
Cornbread…mmm.

 

We also had had pork chops (my Dad isn’t a very big turkey fan). Β I didn’t get to a picture because they were eaten up so fast.

Now for the desserts.

 

img_3681
Apple Spice Cake. Yum!

 

img_3676
Grandma made this Chocolate Chip Cake.

 

img_3677
This is my Mom’s Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate Zucchini Cake. I didn’t try that one.

 

We didn’t have a HUGE Thanksgiving but, I am thankful for what we do have, which is family, love, and a roof over our heads. I just hope that going into the holidays God will help my family and I to see what Thanksgiving and Christmas is really about. Β Thank you for reading this and have a blessed day.

OBX Beach Trip! Part 2

Hey,

I just want to start by saying how sorry I am for not getting this post out sooner.

In this post I am going to show you the pool, sunrise pics, and some other random shots.

 

img_3126
This is the boys in the pool. I was taking pics on the second so I wouldn’t get splashed. πŸ˜€

This is a picture that I took of the tablecloth.

Me and dad went out one morning and I caught the sunrise with my camera.

OBX Beach Trip! Part 1

Hey,

I said there would be a BIG post. πŸ˜€ It was SOOOOO much fun. We left last Sunday and came back today. The house had a pool, a pool table, and a foosball table.

img_3018-1
This was our beach house from the outside. We went with my Mom’s side of the family.

 

img_3019
This was what our house was named.

 

img_3030
This was the kitchen.

There were a few AMAZING sunsets. Here are just a couple of pictures that I took.

img_3043

 

img_3066

img_3071
One of my cousins posed for me, (just because Matthew wouldn’t do it). πŸ˜€
img_3099
On the third floor balcony there was a hole in a board. If you looked down the hole you would see the porch swing. I thought, why not put the camera up here and go sit on the porch swing. I had Matthew take the next pic.

 

img_3108
We had to take a few shots because some of them didn’t work out, but this one did. πŸ˜€

 

This is all for now, but I will put another post up soon. Thanks for reading this and have a blessed day.

Mom’s Birthday

Hey,

My mom’s birthday was a few days ago, and we had a fun time. The night before we decorated.

This is the banner that I made for Mom.

 

We bought Mom some balloons. This is just ONE of them. Them Mom came down and we did presents.

 

IMG_3005
This is my card that I gave Mom.

 

These were some flowers that Dad bought Mom. There was roses and little white flowers. I don’t know what the white ones were.

Then we ate breakfast and went to Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Unfortunately I don’t have any more pictures. Thank you for reading this and have a blessed day. πŸ˜€

P.S. Just so everyone knows, there will be a BIG post up in about a week or so. πŸ˜€
