Williamsburg Christmas

Happy Thursday!  I love taking this week off each year.  I call it my holiday "stay-cation"!  It's even better this year since my daughter and her family are here with us.  Yesterday was my birthday and as usual I wanted to spend the day in Colonial Williamsburg so off we went.  Thank goodness it wasn't as cold as last year but there was snow and slush everywhere.  I love seeing Colonial Williamsburg decorated for Christmas but I knew I couldn't wait to see the snow and the decorations together, so 18th century!!

The Governor's mansion. People were building snowmen on the lawn.

Icicles were everywhere!

DH and me...the birthday girl

My daughter Kristin and her husband and son.....with baby girl on the way!
Nice patriotic touch!
This was on the same house as the flag wreath.  Patriots for sure!

So cute!  The door is nice too.
The blue ribbon winner

Pretty wreaths on all of the doors and windows

Less than two days left in 2010, I've got to get busy stitching Red House sampler.  It was started one year ago today!  Ciao!

Wonderful photos! My family loves Williamsburg and try to go once a year or so, but have never made it during the Christmas season - now it is on my list of things to do!

Happy New Year to you and Yours!

Happy Belated Birthday! Williamsburg looks wonderful with the snow. It sounds like you had a great family day. Aren't those the best?

Oh, I love Williamsburg. I was there once years ago in the summer and now I have to see it during Christmastime, too! Thanks for the pix!
