Greenbrier Hotel

Me, my sister, my brother and my mom in front of the Greenbrier!
Just a couple days ago we got back from an awesome vacation at the Greenbrier hotel.  For those of you  who don't know what it is, the Greenbrier is a huge resort where there are a whole bunch of activities!  It's also really cool because this place is so fancy that it actually has a dress code!  It was really fun dressing up in all of are fancy clothes and doing fun things around the hotel.  We did so many awesome activities at the hotel, we played laser tag, we went swimming, we went to this awesome outdoor ice rink (we skated once when it was morning, and we skated once when it was dark.  It was so cool they had a whole bunch of Christmas lights outside at night while we were skating!  We had such a fun time but sadly we were only there for four days.  To be honest I would of liked to stay there for another whole week!!  We had such an awesome time I'm already looking forward to going back!

Thanks

Christmas!

Our Christmas Tree!
Christmas, my very favorite holiday ever, is in only nineteen days!  Hopefully it will snow when Christmas arrives!  Sadly outside it's all rainy, gray and muddy. :( Just a couple days ago we put up our Christmas tree, we all had a lot of fun putting up the ornaments and wrapping the lights around the tree.  We've actually had this same tree for fifteen years!!  Yeah, It's really old but it doesn't give us any problems and it surprisingly still looks very good!  Yesterday my little brother Ryan and I had an awesome time making gingerbread cookies and cutting them out into a whole bunch of different shapes, we had an awesome time and the cookies tasted amazing!!  Soon we will start to put up our gingerbread house, YAY!  Sorry for the super short post, but I have to get started on my school work!  Hope everyone has a great Christmas!

Gingerbread cookies!

P.S. What's your favorite holiday? And, how was your Thanksgiving? :)
