Longwood pictures




Today we went to Longwood Gardens. It was cold and windy but it is supposed to be the best day of the week so my parents decided to go today.

Here is one of the many Christmas trees they have decorated right now.

This is what you get when you say "Hey Sarah pose".

Hey Look another tree! It took forever to get a good shot of it because all the people are trying to get pictures of it.

In the conservatory they have a Music Room that they decorate each year.
This year it was amazing!

Here is one of the tables. I love the way they have them decorated!


At each end of the room they have these wreaths. One was above the fireplace and the other above one of the doors.


This is the meadow. My Dad, Emma, Rachel, Sarah and Kyle walked around it while my Mom and I went the the conservatory( I like our idea better).




This is Dad, Rachel and Sarah walking on a wall near one of the tree houses.


Here is one of the tree houses that Longwood built. They made four of them and each one is made from different types of wood they reclaimed or imported.
They are all built around the tree not in them so that they can be taken down and they won't hurt the tree.


This shot is looking down from the top of the "Birdhouse".


This is the Nature tree that our co-op decorated. We made a lot of little bundles of seed pods and other edible things for the birds and other wildlife.

Here are Sarah and Kyle walking on a stone wall.

This is a cat we found in side the du Pont house.

The poor cat...it has to lay around all day(In the warm house) and have people pet it and scratch it. Yep it has a hard life.

Random photos are one of my favorite things to post!

Christmas Lights

On December 1st my family and our friends at Hospitality Lane went down to the Herr's potato chip factory to look at the lights. So here are some of the crazy and not so crazy pictures from our little trip.
Here are the Potato heads! I think it was a great idea(who ever it was) to make the bushes look like potatos


Hey look a tree.
I think this one is really cool!

Here is my sister kissing a red nosed reindeer....

This is what you get when I discover how to set the shutter to 8 seconds and slowly turn the camera...

or shake the camera... this looks like a cell phone wallpaper.

I think I get bored just taking regular pictures of the lights so I started moving the camera a little more.


Okay the funny thing about these pictures is that the whole time we where in the car we where complaining about not being able to get a clear picture! And so we get out of the car in to the cold night air and this is what most of my pictures look like!

So these are some of the many pictures I took while in Nottingham at the Herr's potato chip factory.

Girls Day Out!

About two years ago Emma and I and some friends started going Christmas shopping together with our Grandma(we drag her with us). So this year we did a sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa's house too!
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!!

So here are some pictures from Thursday.

"E Squared" at Pizza Hut. I am not really sure what was going on with them...they are probably the only ones who know.

Here is L. with some strange hat I made her put on.

And here is Chelsea posing in a not so strange hat she chose.
Okay I have to say it is much better than the one I made her try on.

Here are the 5 of us at dinner. Sorry I did not have any pictures of Grandma I had one but she told me to delete it.

After we went shopping we went back to Grandma's and ate chips, pumpkin roll, and leftover Pizza. Then we did line dancing and watched "The Village" until after 1:00 am.
It was so much fun!!
