The Colors of Christmas

We went to Longwood Gardens with the Roomies this weekend.  It was spectacular.

The trees, poinsettia, orchids and the apple lane were spectacular.  We also got to sing carols with the 39th largest organ in the world playing for us.

Night arrived and the lights came on.  It is quite a sight to behold.  Thad and I are really feeling the Christmas Spirit now!

Summer 2013 – It’s Always Christmas Time Here

We were in Lancaster with the Roomies and they took us to this really cool Christmas Store open all year.

I always loved Christmas time in Germany.  Back in my day it wasn’t quite what is celebrated today but it was still the one hopeful day a year 🙂

Bjorn couldn’t come this trip because he was at the pool with the ladies so I took a picture of Norway’s Christmas for him.  I’m not sure they celebrated Christmas on the Fjords.  I’ll have to ask him next time I see him.

“And I would like another Franken Doll and…wait are you sleeping?”  Santa needs to wake up and hear my list!

Hey Bob Cratchett and Tiny Tim Hey!!!

We had a lot of fun.  I’d do that tour again it was really cool.  Well except the Biblical portion that freaked out the Roomie…she’s such a wimp!  I told her…Man Up Yo!
