a relaxing weekend in virginia

So here are a few of the photos from our very relaxing weekend in Virginia. We have Maeve with her "crazy hair day" braids -- Avalon actually smiling for the camera (rare for any 12 year old!) -- Faerin climbing on the tree -- me and the little girls on the swings -- and Foamhenge!!
It really was a very relaxing weekend! The weather was perfect - I got to knit with Jules (five hats done over the weekend!!) and go to this really wonderful yarn store/berry farm in the middle of nowhere (too cool!!) - go antiquing - run through the backside of W&L's campus - see Robert E Lee's tomb - and just generally decompress. Thanks Jules, James and girls!! I think that Bill really enjoyed himself too!

Now we are back to planning for the holiday - finishing up our Chirstmas shopping and knitting - working - and getting the house ready for our Christmas tree -- we go Christmas tree hunting in three weeks.
