It's Christmas Time in the City!

As promised, here are the pictures from our trip into Philly.
Our family decided to go to Philadelphia for Christmas this year instead of NYC, as you might remember we did last year.We started in Narberth,Pa, which is a small town just outside of Philly.
They were having a Dickens Village Day.Almost everyone was dresses up in period costumes,and talking in a British accent.It was really neat!
After that we rode the train from there to center city.We got off and went straight to the German Christkindle Mart, which was right beside City Hall.Dad even paid $2.00 for each of the children to ride the Carousel.Next we went to Macy's and the light show. Sitting beside total strangers for an half an hour on a marble floor just adds to the fun!
Are next stop was Reading Terminal for the most delicious Cannoli in the world and the Reading Christmas Train.Finally after a great dinner at Olive Garden we strolled back to Macy's to see the Dickens' Village on the 3rd floor.It has a model of a miniature London of old and wax people to reenact the "A Christmas Carol" story.
You must be thinking wow, what a full day.You are definitely right, when our family dose something, we fill every minute with events!
Hope you enjoy the pictures!

mmmmmm........ decisions, decisions!!

These were some of my favorite pictures of the whole day!

A great ending to a great day.
