Wow, can you believe it is the last day of 2013?  Where did this year go?  It was a very busy year for Minny and myself.  We made the big move in November from the mountains of New Hampshire to the mountains of North Carolina!

It was our first Christmas in North Carolina.  The Blue Ridge Mountains are just Awesome!  But I have to say, there wasn't very much snow Christmas morning.  Nothing like in New Hampshire. But that is okay. We had to make the move, so it is all good..............

Blue Ridge Mountains

How was your Christmas?  Ours was great!  Minny loved watching where Santa was on the Santa Tracker on the computer. What?  We watched it on a computer and in the mountains no less!  Well, have you heard of generators?  They help us moose when we need to check things out on the computer and television. Minny kept looking up in the sky hoping she could see Santa in person, but she fell asleep before he arrived. Santa was very good to her.

North Carolina has some cool places.  McAdenville is known as Christmas Town USA.  I love to visit these neat places.

That's all for now.  Getting ready to ring in the new year!  I hope you all have a Wonderful New Year's Eve and Day.  Don't watch too much football!  Enjoy the parades!

Minny went to Sea World in Orlando!  She had a blast, as did we all!  We went with my "adopted mom" and her grandson and with her daughter.

"Mom" wanted to catch all the Christmas shows and those shows are after 6 PM.  So we left just before noon and drove the 80 miles to Sea World.  We visited the new Antartica exhibit first.  We rode the new ride they have and then saw all the penquins in their new home!  Minny was awestruck!

We then went to ride on The Polar Express.  What a neat ride!  Minny was so mesmirized. She couldn't believe she was going to the North Pole!  After we walked through where the polar bears were and where Santa was visiting with children, we saw a HUGE Christmas tree!
Gigantic Tree!
We got to see it snow!  Yes, I said snow.  You didn't know that it snows in Florida?  Well it does at Sea World around Christmas.  We also got to see a new thing this year at Sea World.  While we were waiting for it to snow, they had two toy soldiers standing on drums. They wouldn't move until someone came up to them or made them move.  They were so cute and Minny and Ronnie got a kick out of watching them.

Toy Soldiers
We had to get in line early to see "O Wondrous Night".  The 7 PM show was sold out, so we saw the 8:30 PM show. It is the story of the Baby Jesus told from the animals point of view.  They had live animals also. They had camels, goats, sheep, birds, doves, etc.  The whole audience gave the cast a standing ovation at the end.  It was a Wondrous show indeed!

A Beautiful Show!

We then went to see Shamu in Miracles.  Minny loved watching the whales jump out of the water and then splash the audience with water.  She thought it was funny!

After we went to see the Ice Show.  Those guys and gals sure can skate!  We also the Christmas tree show. They have these Christmas trees on the water all lit up.  They change colors along to the music.  

The finale for the evening was an awesome fireworks show.  The fireworks are timed to the music.  Minny sat there with her jaw open.  She could not believe how beautiful the fireworks were.  A little loud, but she didn't care.

Awesome Fireworks!

If you are ever in the Orlando area, stop by Sea World and catch their shows.  Especially at Christmas time!

So it is really warm here in Florida.  It has been in the eighties.  Minny and I are headed back to the mountains of North Carolina for Christmas.  It is our new home as I told in my last blog and we want to be there to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  And Minny told me she is going to stay up and wait for Santa.  She wants to see him in person!

Enjoy your Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Did you miss me?  I missed you!  I apologize for not being around lately, BUT...........we were moving! That's right, we moved from New Hampshire to the mountains of North Carolina!  We are now located in Kannapolis, North Carolina.

Kannapolis, you say!  Yep.  It is the hometown of the famous NASCAR race car driver, Dale Earnhardt, Sr.  He is no longer with us as he passed away in an accident at the end of the 2001 Daytona 500. Kannapolis is in the heart of NASCAR country with a lot of race shops all around.

I must say I do miss the mountains of New Hampshire, but North Carolina has its own mountains.  One of the most famous ones is Grandfather Mountain.  I believe it is the highest point in North Carolina.  Look at the bridge you can walk over from one mountain top to the other at Grandfather Mountain.

Grandfather Mountain
Minny would not go across that bridge.  She didn't like the fact that it was so far down between those mountain tops!  Can't say I blame her.  It was a bit scary!

It is cold out there and this is the season where your hands get awfully dry.  You need my Magic for your hands.  Remember, my hand treatment soaks into your skin and doesn't "sit on top" of your skin like some mineral oil based products do.  You can wash your hands and my Magic will still be softening your hands.

You can go to here to order Magic for your hands.  Your hands will love you for it!

Soon it will be Christmas and Minny is getting excited!  Until next time..............
