The week before Christmas everyone was a little under the weather, so we stayed close to home. On New Year's Eve we went to Longwood Gardens in PA - they had an ice skating show, lights at night, and the most beautiful indoor garden ever! A highlight for Chris and the girls were the trains - they had two set up with trestles (sp?) and everything. We had fun watching them go around and around. We got a Lionel Train for the tree this year and we all had lots of fun racing it around the track!
The girls in the Blue light tunnel outside! We left the gardens at around 5:30, thinking we would stop somewher on the way home for dinner. We got to Carraba's at 6:15 and were told it would be a 120 minute wait (does that sound shorter than 2 hours?) We tried 2 other places before we settled on McDonald's and by the time we made it to the one we had seen, it was after 7:00 and the place was closed. So, WAWA (a New Jersey chain of convenience stores/gas stations) it was! We all got sandwiches and ate them in the parking lot before heading home!
It was really soooooo beautiful. In this main room they had every kind of red and white flower imaginable. The girls are standing in front of Paper Whites, but they also had tulips, snapdragons, white daffodils etc....
One of the many beautiful trees!
Ashlee in her Christmas dress, this was after church, I didn't get one of her before!
That's it! Christopher has been flying a lot lately. He was in the Pacific (Guam, Japan, Hawaii) last week and he just left yesterday for a week in California. We are having girls movie night tonight with pizza, brownies and a movie!!
