Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’ve been away on vacation and haven’t been able to post much in the last week or so. Next week I’ll be back on my regular schedule. However, I would like to wish happiness, good health and prosperity for 2014 to all my fans and followers. Best wishes to you and your loved ones in the new year and for all the years to come!

Below I’m sharing a few highlights of my vacation in Central Florida at the Gaylord Palms Hotel…

I saw the Ice Show. Gaylord Palms flew in ice sculptors from Thailand to create an icy wonderland of sculptures. I was given a coat to put on while in the area of the ice sculptures (8 degrees fahrenheit). Burrr.

I also visited Gingy’s house where you’re given a kit to make your own gingerbread family!

Below is the gingerbread family that I helped make.

One of my cookies came to life, escaped and hid between the cushions on my bed.

As I continued to enjoy my hotel stay I had no idea that Gingy (it’s the name I gave my gingerbread cookie) had a plan of his own.

Gingy made himself comfortable in my bed and used up all my pillows!

In the morning he had the nerve to use my toothbrush! After that there was no stopping him. He followed me everywhere I went.

I stepped away for a moment and Gingy drank all of my hot cocoa (baptized with Brandy).

He insisted on playing cards with us. He ate, ate and ate (and had horrible table manners)! He even had the nerve to surf the web on my laptop (NO ONE touches my laptop)!

After a while he grew on me and I learned to accept the little menace. Ha,ha!

All the best!
