Skiing At Sugar Mountain

minnieskiing ski-clipart-3

Skiing is so much fun. When you ski you have to get tricky, sticky horrible boots on your feet. The boots attach to your ski’s which are super hard to get on. When we went to sugar mountain me and my cousin enrolled in ski school. We visited during the week so many kids would be at the school. We rented ski equipment and bought warm jackets to avoid the cold. Monday was the day we started skiing it was tough but we had cool ski teachers to help us out. We learned the basics of skiing. On Tuesday we learned how to ride the ski lift and go fast. We went on this slope called Easy Street. It was so much fun when we were on the ski lift with another ski teacher. On Wednesday we continued our journey on Easy Street. This time me and Lilly went on the ski lift together we had a technical difficulty but we sorted it out. We where sad to leave but had an amazing time. I hope to come again next year.


Thanksgiving 2014


Thanksgiving is the prime time of year because of the weather and the food. This thanksgiving my dad and I had dinner with my aunt and uncle and my 2 cousins at my grandparents.

We were playing and having appetizers while we waited for our food.  Me and my  six year old cousin Lilly watched TV as my aunt took care of my baby cousin Alison who 8 months old.

When my grandma said “come and eat” we all ran into the dinning room like a stampede of hungry  hippo’s. We sat down and prayed for the lovely food, life and family god has given us. We devoured the heavenly turkey, sweet potato’s, gravy, stuffing, jelled cranberry and banana bread my aunt makes every year.

We had to keep my starving dog Kelsey in the cage because every year she eats the banana bread. As we ate I could hear my dog whimper and cry for a nibble of our food.

After our dinner we had apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake with savory vanilla ice-cream. Our whole family mostly enjoyed the pumpkin pie cheesecake. I absolutely relish going to my grandparents house for thanksgiving every year because it represents a great family gathering.

I hope you had an amazing thanksgiving.

Kelsy The Best Dog Ever

Pets are really cute and fun. Dogs are the best pets in my opinion. Dogs are loving and sweet. I have a dog so I should know.
My dogs name is Kelsy and she is a beagle. Beagles are a breed dog, they are hunting animals and like all dogs she has a good sense of smell. Most beagle’s weight 20-40 pounds. Kelsy has floppy ears and a small body. Kelsy is 3 colors she is dark brown white and light brown and she is four years old.
All dogs just like Kelsy need walks and she gets to walk outside everyday 2 times a day, usually at 11:00 am and then at 6:00 pm. She gets fed right after she goes on her walk and she always gets fed half a cup of doggy chow.
While I do my school work during the day she might come in to get petted by me. Kelsy has her own couch that she lays on.
During the night my grandpa goes into the living room and watches TV and sometimes Kelsy accompanies him and sits on his lap. Sometimes Kelsy comes into grandma’s room and sits next to me.
Kelsy is the best dog ever and I love her.
