Longwood Gardens After Dark

Monday evening found us back at
Longwood Gardens for a special Member only night.
I thought this might mean fewer people.
Well, I suppose as the season goes it was 
pretty light but it was definitely busy.

We enjoyed it nonetheless.

Thanks for bearing with my mostly photo post...
things are hopping here at
Hospitality Lane.
Candle making,,,,,Chelsea's Australian Mission trip planning.
It is crazy.
In fact yesterday Georgia was supposed to 
have a cataract surgery 
but after we got there she found out that 
she couldn't have it due to an unexpected 
complication.
Nothing too serious...
but no surgery on that day.

As God would have it, though, 
because we headed out early because of a random snow storm
we happened to be killing time at a local Christian Bookstore
just as Rick Santorum was holding a book signing.

How cool is that?

I wanted him to be our next president.
But that didn't quite work out.
I'm so happy that he didn't roll up in a big ball 
of self pity....
He's working hard to educate Americans 
about our heritage....and more.

Good stuff.

Anyway, I didn't get to talk to him 
but I was able to leave a book for him to sign
and he did.

Color me happy.

And with that....
I'm off!
Enjoy the beauty of the gardens......

 Out at the trains.....
A replica of the Conservatory.

The moon was making a statement 
all its own.
So bright and beautiful.


The dinner table after dark.


 How gorgeous is this????  
Oh my.


Walking in a Winter Wonderland......

The dearest photo is of Chelsea's reflection in the mirror. The second best one is of the grand piano...love it!

Rick Santorum would have been a wonderful president. One must hold onto the fact that God has him where he is for now for a reason. Hope that you enjoy the book!
