Christmas at the Capitol

Christmas at the Capitol in Pierre has been a fun part of our family holiday tradition since our first Christmas in Pierre. Cody remembers going as a kid (then remembers being drug along, and then remembers not going and boycotting..probably when he was in high school) with his family too.

We have been going multiple times each year with my parents, Cody's parents, on our own, with Cody's grandparents, with friends or on our own. It provides a great way to get out of the house and get in the holiday mood. There are about a hundred trees decorated by organizations across the state and placed inside the Capitol. On weekends there is usually special groups singing Christmas carols or playing holiday music on the piano or other instrument. It's lovely! And the smell is awesome!!!!

These pictures aren't great this year, as the lighting is low and I have a little miss flitting around checking out all the pretties. 

Three floors of decorated goodness!

We were lucky enough to be able to enjoy the trees with both my parents and Cody's parents this year. Blessings!

It's so nice to have this right in town for our family to enjoy season after season. It's certainly something that Grace talks about year-round. She might think the trees are in there all year! :)
