We are back from Vermont and not all that happy about it. Christmas was wonderful. We attended Stowe's local church for Christmas Eve services at 11 P.M. and it was magical. We ice skated on Christmas day and enjoyed Christmas dinner at The Green Mountain Inn. We got plenty of snow and got in some skiing with excellent conditions. Indeed, it snowed nearly the entire time we were there. Suffice it to say that this trip was about as "Christmasy" as it can get...Now...on to New Year's Eve...Black Tie party in Society Hill and New Year's day at the Mummer's Parade.
