few pics of the Omni hotel

After seeing the reindeer outside , we went inside to see the Omni hotel.   Little disapointing as the decorations were not as many as previous years.

James Center Christmas

James Center in  downtown Richmond Va.  
All decked out for Christmas,  the two grandchildren - Ryan and Tyler enjoyed seeing the lit reindeer and tall Christmas tree.   I will post pictures of inside the Omni hotel tomorrow.

Ryan is looking at the star at the top of this tree,   he is in awe of it.


we saw this on the wall here and thought someone left it.    Got closer and found it was not real,   we just call it "Art".


Beautiful wreath in the walkway

Busch pics - part two

Here are a few more pictures of Busch Gardens. 
In the German town there were plenty of steins and gluwein for sale.   Beautiful nutcrackers.  Santa at the North Pole, where you can have a picture taken with him.
France had an icy theme, which made us feel all the more colder.
Glad for the outdoor heated areas.










North Pole




























There were beautiful wreaths hanging everywhere.
