Thanksgiving in the States of America is a lot different that in Canada. It is almost bigger that Christmas!!!! We went to a friend of dads from work for Lupper, definition: mix of lunch and supper. We went home and went to another friend’s house to play games and stuff until 10:00 PM.
We got a Christmas tree!!!!! Now it smells so nice in here. It is about 5 feet tall and It makes me feel tall. We can’t put to many decorations on it or else it will fall down. He he.
The last four or five days I have been going to bed around 9:00 or 10:00……. That is why I put the zzzzzzzzs on the title.

Last night we went to the Skillet concert…… All I can say is LOUD!!!!! Caleb already listed all the bands so I don’t need to do that. The music was amazing and it sounded really GREAT. They had a violinist and a celloist playing with them so it kinda had the classical sound but it was Rock Music.

We went to the Denver Museum. The part I liked most was the space section. They had all kinds of things about all the planets and stars. There was a movie about black holes, and how they are made. It was in one of those rooms where the screen is up on the roof and all over the walls. There was a health thing where you have a card and put it into a hole and there was a program of your heart rate and what you will look like when you are 70 (We took a pic of me…… I look freaky!!!) There was a mind game where there was a metal ball the you strapped something to your head the read your brainwaves and you had to be calm and whoever can get the ball to the other side….. WINS!!!! (I won twice and Caleb won once.) There was a bug section where they had lots of dead bugs pinned to a wall. There were some pretty butterfly’s. There was a school tour so there were lots of people. Here are some pics.
Lots Of Bugs
Leaving Denver :’( Nice View
They are starting to lay grass and landscaping down on our apartment. Plus another family is moving in to the one above us. Wow they are putting in lots of trees
When we were in Denver we went to a mint. No, that’s not where they make candy, it’s where people make coins. They make all different kinds of American coins. There were a lot of security guards there because they had gold somewhere in the building. What was even crazier was that the police station was right across the road. If someone tried to break in, they’d get JAILED!!!! We were given coins that only 1000 were made. That may sound like a lot but they were never touched by human hands and they gave them out to everybody who came on a tour. Even the little kid who are going to rip open the wrapper and probably lose the coin. We saw how the coins were made and what materials they used. On the way out there was a hallway that was made a long time ago. It was a replica of a church in Italy. The roof was painted and all the floors were never replaced.
Yesterday we went skiing at Loveland. There were only five trails open and they were green and blue. The one we went on the most was a green and it had a stunt park on it with lots of jumps and fun stuff. It was really fun and I didn’t crash that much. Here are some photos.
I got the used bike in Colorado Springs. It’s a Specialized P3 2008 I haven’t had a chance to ride it that much but I will soon. It is in great shape because the guys wife only rode it for one race. The cost on the site was $950 but dad always has to have a lower price so he paid $800 for it. Only problem is that it has a sticker that has “Lana” on it and it won’t come of.
Here is the link to a picture.
