Christmas at Mount Vernon
This is by far one of my most favorite places on this earth! I am completely fascinated by George and Martha Washington. Our day started out with a lot of sleet and ice but we made it to Vernon later that afternoon. The visitor's center had these beautiful Christmas Trees. One is for George and the other is for Martha. Then I went out to visit with Aladdin the camel that is brought to Mount Vernon every Christmas. Then I got to visit the house and the grounds and listen to Martha herself tell stories of living at Vernon with George.
I was also able to visit Ford's Theater to see A Christmas Carol. It was an amazing performance and was chilling to be in the same building where Lincoln was sadly assassinated.
