Good enough to eat!

Over Thanksgiving, my family and I checked out the gingerbread house competition at The Grove Park Inn. What fun that was! Here are a few for you to see.

Ballerina gingerbread

Several masterpieces

My favorite!
This was created to mirror the movie Up.
So adorable.

Grand Prize Winner - nesting dolls.
It was very intricately shaped!


There were hundreds of fabulous gingerbread houses.
It was quite amazing!
If you ever get the chance, definitely swing by and check them out :)

Christmas fun

Orlando is a very fun place to be for the holidays. There are all sorts of Christmas events going on and so much to do. I love checking it all out and getting in the Christmas spirit.

For the bf's work party this year we went to Epcot. We had a wonderful dinner in a private room at the Living Seas and got to watch all the cute fish, stingrays and even a giant sea turtle swim about while we mingled and ate.


Next up was the Candlelight Processional, also at Epcot. It was beautiful! The choir sang all types of traditional Christmas carols and songs and were highlighted by the fabulous lights and setting.


All holding candles, there was such a nice glow set all across the stage. The Candlelight Processional also features a well-known Narrator and there are different narrators each weekend. Ours did a great job. He is on the show Psych, but I can't remember his name :)



The following weekend sent us to SeaWorld where we boarded The Polar Express. One of the rides is transformed into The Polar Express and it is just adorable. The sleeping polar bear we saw after the ride might have been even cuter!


We also saw several Christmas-themed shows while at SeaWorld and they were all very well done. We saw the Shamu Christmas Miracles show, a tree lighting show and even an ice skating show. I must commend SeaWorld on a fabulous job on all the Christmas shows!

Oh Christmas Trees!

The Singing Christmas Trees 2010 was quite a success! I enjoyed every single minute of it and am so blessed to be part of such a talented cast and crew, spreading my joy through dance. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.

The Trees and all their glory.

Gloria!
I'm the middle angel with my wings spread.

Oh Holy Night.
(I'm on the far left.)
This was the opening number and we were thrilled to be the ones who "reveal" the trees. We did a series of turns and we stop, posed towards the trees and then the curtain falls down and there they are. So amazing!!

Toy Soldier Rockettes!!!
(I'm on the back right.)
This was a cute number that was like the Macy's Christmas parade.

That's the good news!
(I'm in the middle.)
Loved this jazzy/sassy number.

Gloria angels in action :)

Loved the shepherds :)

Angel trio
I was so thrilled to be part of the trio!
Lots of twirling :)

A huge thanks to all who were a part of Singing Christmas Trees 2010!!
Love, joy and peace to all :)

Happy December!

Hi everyone! It's hard to believe today is already December 1st. Time to get merry!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and thought I'd share a few pics. I flew home to Atlanta and my family and I spent our Thanksgiving in Asheville. We stayed at the Grove Park Inn and it was just gorgeous! The mountain views were stunning and it was one happening place. All of the guests hung out in the lobby playing games, listening to the band or watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade or football on the big screen. It was also all decked out for the holidays and the gingerbread house competition was on display (will share in another post). Oh what fun!






And now it's time to move on to Christmas!

The show I dance in each year, The Singing Christmas Trees, is set to open tomorrow night for friends and family and the official opening night is Friday. I am SO excited!! My family is flying in tomorrow and will be going to see it. We'll also be partaking in some Christmas fun this weekend. Can't wait!

Here are recaps from the past two year's performances:

Time to dance pretty!
