Christmas at The Capitol


I am so happy that we were able to go to Christmas at the Capital!  I know this will be an annual event for our household!  I loved all the detail that was put into these trees.  I also got my hair done, and we had a really nice lunch at the local Italian restaurant.




















My favorite tree was the Narnia tree.


Gotta love this tree topper!







I thought this was a Bob the Builder themed tree from far away, but it turns out it was thanking all the volunteers for the huge flood that took place in SD this summer!  I loved the clever use of sand bags!  There were a LOT of sandbags when we arrived here.






Posing together, and I'm rocking my TOMS snowflake shoes.



I have arrived as a teacher!  On the last day of school, one of my students comes in beaming and says, "Merry Christmas, Mrs. F.  I killed it myself."  He proceeds to tell me how he killed it, plucked the feathers, and all.  Awesomeness!

Oh my gosh, your hair looks awesome!

Those trees were all so beautiful and unique. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE that one of your babies brought you a chicken, and that he prepared it himself. That is just awesome!

I hope you and Ben have a wonderful Christmas with your families!
