SNOW DAY! (without the snow...)

Yay!!! When my favorite person, Carole Birdsong called last night, I screamed!!! No school! :D Finally I get a break....even though Christmas break was a few weeks ago. :) Did I tell you about Christmas break? I don't think I did....So my family, like my whole family. Cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents, everyone, went to Colorado for our family vacation! We rented this HUMUNGOUS house on the mountains, and let me tell you, its the prettiest, biggest, tallest house I've ever been in. It had four or five floors! Its too hard to count...But it was soo fun! We got tons of food, and really sat around and talked. :) The first day, we went skiing. Not a good idea. I fell like.....twelve times probably. Us kids didn't go to the ski lessons, so daddy thought he could teach us. Well, he did fine. Except with me....When I fell, i twisted my leg in a gross position and it hurt!!!! Really bad, I didn't know how to get out. But lets skip to the next day...We really just hung out the next day. We tried to go sledding in our backyard, but oh my gosh, I have never stepped in snow that deep! It went up to my knees, and I am 5 foot 2 and 1/2. So I think I lost 8 pounds going up the hill. Not kidding. Well maybe a little.... :) So when my sister sled down the hill, she hit a bump and flew off! And her sled was still going! We yelled for her to go get it because if it goes on, it will sled off the hill! She ran as fast as she could in tons of snow, and dived because it was a few feet from sliding off the cliff. Good thing she got it, or else she would have to pay for it. Its not our sled....But of course we went sledding again because our cousin hadn't gotten there yet and he wanted to go. So we did. The same thing happened again, except it actually fell off the cliff. :) Man, my butt is still sore from hitting a log while I was sledding with my cousin. Anyways, almost every night we went in the hot tub while it was freezing! And I got dared to roll in the snow for five seconds then jump back in the tub. I did it. Three times. :) The next day we went shopping and I got the cutest bag in the world! It was 30$ but I had to get it. And I got a cute Colorado t-shirt. The second to last day was the best, we went tubing. :) It was soooooo fun!!!! Its on this super, super, steep hill that is really long. The first time we all went together, except for my 13 year old sister and cousin, they probably thought its embarrassing...But I screamed, "OH MY GOSH! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! AHHHH!" The whole ride down. :) Even my grandparents went! :D It was great, except that I couldn't walk very well because my butt got sore. Okay, I have hurt my butt four times this year. ;p Yeah, I know....But it was really fun. (not hurting my butt but tubing) (haha i said but but :) ) Anyways, I'm so sad that I had to go. :( I miss that place. I started my new year there, and I'll never end it there. :( Oh well. I'm just glad its a snow day. But I'm also sad because there isn't any snow...Well, thanks anyways Carole Songbird! The birds are singing...
