Hello all! Sorry that I haven't posted of late, I shall try and make up for it this month as I will be home! =D
This past week my family went to Busch Gardens to celebrate Christmas Town. It was fun to go there with our church friends with all of the lights and caroling and Christmas goodies. I was very impressed with many of the songs that were sung. Santa was barely mentioned, yet, the traditional Christmas hymns/carols were sang with full gusto. More and more I come to appreciate that we live amidst the Bible belt.
While at the theme park we had fun riding on roller coasters, drinking coffee, eating cheesecake (and other Christmas treats) and singing Christmas carols. There was even an awesome Scottish man with his bagpipes there! =D
The first thing that we noticed when we came there was the awesome lights. The Christmas tree was spectacular as there were lights that blank along to the Christmas music. Here is a picture of some of the lights that were there. (There were a lot of colored ones there that were amazing but no one took pictures of them. . . oh well. ;) )
The next thing that we did was that everyone went to go ride the Griffin. The Griffin is a fun roller coaster as it goes a few hundred feet in the air and then brings you down with a few loops at the end. Last but not least, generally at least one person gets sprayed with water. ;)
After the ride we were all smiling and happy. It really is a lot of fun to go on the Griffin! =D
When we were finished riding the Griffin we all ate dinner together and went to watch a few shows. The shows were again, very well done and I enjoyed the whole day immensely! =)
We have been decorating our house and have been making Christmas goodies. Last night we put up the nativity scene to Christmas carols and made some delicious cookies and chocolate chip cheesecake bars.
Tonight we're going to get the tree! =D
And today, is my last day for two of my classes. After today I only have three more classes to finish up, I'm excited! =D
Christmas is coming, and it's going to be an amazing God-blessed day!
Merry Christmas everybody! =D
P.S: I'm thinking about getting a camera soon. . . I'm currently leaning towards the Nikon D60 with a Nikkor 60mm lens, but I'm not sure. What do y'all think?
