Christmas @ the Capitol...

S aturday we took a break from errands and finishing up all that needed to be done for Christmas to visit the Capitol to see the big tree.

As usual the tree is huge. This photo is taken from the second floor. And to be more energy efficient all the lights on the tree this year are LED. I noticed as soon as I walked in that the lights looked different... brighter. All the decorations on the tree are made by Wisconsin school children.

This is our second Christmas in Madison and I am working on new traditions. We lived 2 blocks from the Capitol for 11 months and I find I miss cutting through the rotunda on my way to the library or the grocery store. A visit to the Capitol will definitely be a yearly event.
