Yesterday our WMU Ladies group from our church went on a little road trip to tour our Governor's Mansion all decked out for the holidays. It was a beautiful tour, elegant and very well presented. The pictures will speak for themselves. So hope you enjoy coming along on the tour with me.
The foyer had many trees waiting to welcome guest. Look closely at that chandelier. Beautiful. One of many throughout the mansion.
We were told the 2 cabbage patch kids , represented the Governor and his wife. This was in the formal dining room.
Trees beautiuflly decorated everywhere. Some rooms had as many as four.
The family dining room. You can see a glimpse of the kitchen in the background. They were preparing for a party of 80 guest for the night. Smelled wonderful in there. The only kitchen in the mansion.
Loved the staircase. Decorated simple, but just look all around. You saw all this as you entered.
Our tour ended in the basement in the ball room. There were school choirs perforning constantly. We were served cookies and drinks. We were told they had already since the tours began baked 18,000 cookies.. I can see why. They were delicious.
Darbee Rae enjoying her cookie and watching the choir performing.
Just had to get a picture in front of one of the beautiufl trees. She thinks she is just as grown as all of us ladies. Acts like it too. It was a special day for her, she even missed pre K to visit the mansion.
After our tour of the Mansion , we had reservations for lunch at the famous Swan House.
What did I choose to eat? Something I have never tried in my lifetime. I ordered a Fried Green Tomato Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries. It was delicious.
After lunch a quick trip to IKEA for a little shopping and our day was complete. Darbee Rae entertained us on the way home in the van by singing her little heart out with Christmas Carols. Such a fun filled day with some of the nicest and most caring ladies I know.
After all that's what Christmas is all about, right? Remembering the birth of our Lord and Saviour and spending time with family and friends. Hoping during this busy holiday season you are all taking time to enjoy a few simple and fun things in your everyday life.
