Christmas 2012

 We started our Christmas Vacation in Savannah, Georgia.  This is one of our favorite places, and it was also one of my Mom's favorite places.  We had such a wonderful time here. 
 We planned a lot of tours this time since we thought Lily would really enjoy that part of Savannah.  The first tour we took was the Festival of Lights.  This was a trolley tour that ended up on some land where they had tents set up with camel rides and bonfires for roasting Smores.  Lily loved making her Smores on her own.  It was freezing this night, but we managed to thoroughly enjoy our tour just the same.
 The following day, we took a tour of Julliette Gordon Low's House (she started the Girl Scouts).  Lily absorbed all of this, later saying, "I really loved exploring Julliette's house." We also went on a Paula Dean Tour with a wonderful tour guide who knew everything about Savannah.  She took us by St. John's Cathedral and let us out to go inside this beautiful church so Lily could see the manger scene.  It was a sight to behold and our pictures didn't dare do it justice.  The church was simply beautiful. 
We also purchased our very first Pete the Cat painting by James Dean.  Lily was thrilled about this one especially since she was able to help us pick it out.  We chose an earlier painting with the moon as the background because Lily has always loved the moon...since she was very little.  So, we decided together that it was the best choice. 

After spending a few days in Savannah, it was time to move onto WDW.  I will post pictures throughout the week that will show what we did each day in Disney World.  We had the best Christmas ever!  I am so thankful that we were able to spend time together as a family!  God truly blessed us!
