Dear Santa -
Forgive me for not posting since Thanksgiving... I found myself overcome by turkey, dressing and rolls... Then my hubby surprised me with a trip to Colonial Williamsburg (I posted a pic of the Governor's Palace above... cool huh?). Santa, he (my dear hubby) has been VERY good this year! So please bring him something nice. Would you believe I came home and caught a nasty respiratory bug.... YUCK! So Santa, please forgive me for slacking on my duties... and if you bring me a big lump of coal I will understand!
Forgive me for the long post but there is a project posted below. I thought you might enjoy some photos of my trip!
Some of the beautiful decorations at Colonial Williamsburg... Who would have thought hedge apples could look so good?
Day 2 we traveled to Jamestown. I visited there in 2002. In 2004, archaeologists discovered the actual fort and the Park Service has made some wonderful investments in this historic site. If you get the chance please check it out! This is what's left of the original church. It was built in the middle of the fort! It's been there for 400 hundred years!
And here's my Santa card. Doesn't she look mischieveous?
