Discovering this town through the eyes of our children has been a great adventure. This weekend, we were able to take part in a few Christmas festivities.

We saw colonial Christmas dancing and sampled baked goods made from recipes of the period and took a couple of house tours. The children visited with Santa too, without having to wait in line.
We visited the Capitol and saw Virginia's copy of the Declaration of Independence. It only drizzled a little and somehow the camera captured the raindrops.
Horses named Adam and Eve took us on a carriage ride. They were such lovely horses.
Free children's Christmas crafts: puzzle-piece reindeer, Christmas mouse from Kisses chocolates, silver bells from paper cups and more. Now I don't have to come up with any Christmas crafts at home!

We also saw a boat parade where all the boats were decorated with Christmas lights. The viewing was up on a nice hill. They had a bonfire for roasting hotdogs and also served veggie burgers, cider and cocoa.

And all these events were free to the public. What a nice way to enjoy the holiday spirit!
