Acting like a tourist

Hubby and I have been talking about taking the kids down to Williamsburg for, well, ummm, forever! It's only about a 2 1/2 hr. drive and they're well known for the Christmas Decorations (the pictures don't do them justice) and we haven't been down in so long and we were out of school for 12 days and the weather was actually cooperating and blah, blah, blah.

Here's a few pics. incase you've never been. But first let me just say the wreaths of greenery and whatnot are unbelievable. There are volumes out there on just these decorations. Go check them out at your library or B&N as I prefer to call it.

Here is the classic shot that EVERY tourist MUST take. Even if you're not a tourist. If you're not quick, a line will form and believe me it gets quite unruly because what I said about the line, well, um, truth be told, there isn't really a works on the merit system. The merit system of Tourists. Familiar with that, are you?! Editor's note: HA!

Where are these when I really need them?

Who Loves horses more than anything right now? One guess!

Oh, the joyous squealing of excitement that came from our youngest upon seeing these beauties. Let's just say, I'm glad we're not responsible for some kind or rearing and kicking incident. (Hey, it could happen)

Did I mention the wreath's?

Hey, we have a blue ribbon winner here!

Aren't these colors gorgeous!! And that's indian corn. I was just amazed at what they could make. The original craft movement :)

Oh, and they dress in period costumes...Love it!

A great job...whittiler?! Seriously, who the heck wants to be told to go out and make about 1,000 sharp sticks. Oh yeah and make sure they're all the same width and height. Me! Me! Me!...Not!!!
