I hope and pray you've had a wonderful Christmas remembering the miracle of Christ, remembering his birth and the love that was sent into the world -- the greatest present of all. Hoping and praying it was special and spent with those you love.. As we head into the new year, I remember all the great experiences and memories, as well as new friends I have made this last year. Again, I thank you all for reading this blog and coming along as I travel through my little life! ;)

(There were beautiful stained glass and crystal lanterns in the car as well)

After the railcar, we went into the tower that controls the trains. As we were inside, a train actually did run by and I kind of reverted to a little kid for a moment. The guide showed us an actual 100 year old "computer" that made all the trains run and get to their destinations successfully (below).
I'm not sure why but we didn't get a photo of the caboose! But we did go in ...
Afterwards, we headed across the street to my new favourite little cafe/soda fountain place. We had lunch and I just had to get a cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper .. they mix their own sodas and they are so YUMMY!
Are you looking forward to Christmas? I almost have our shopping done. Almost. After the soda fountain, we went to the antique shops around there and I am trying very hard to find my Mom a present! She has everything and I'm trying not to just find another something that is just SOMETHING. I try to find something special... Well, it didn't happen today.... But I did have a good time!
At any rate, I promised Mariam from Willow Cottage a blog about my tea pots.
The three tea pots above were given to me by my mother - Actually, she gave all of them to me at some point or another. My blue and white one there has to be one of my most favourite ones. I've used it the most, I think.
Here's an overall view of the inside of my grandmother's china cabinet. I have a wizard of oz glass set. The glasses in the middle are from my mother, and the green glass pitcher is from Williamsburg, Virginia (we went to Williamsburg on our honeymoon). The little plates on the bottom on the left hand side are from Adam's Nanny (grandmother). I found the red bird picture at a thrift store.
It's definitely a learning process and I have alot farther to go, as you probably can tell. The area I want for the garden is over run by ant beds and Adam's trying to help battle them for me. We shall win this fight! That space will be MINE!
