Tonight Gramma, Daddy Jim, Aidan, Aoife, Declan and I went to see the National Christmas Tree. We had to leave Emmy and Brendan asleep in bed - neither of them is feeling well. It's so not fair to be sick over Christmas!!!
The tree was great - lots of lights and we watched the trains go around and around for a while!! After we escaped the crowds, we walked back towards the car and went up to the Washington Monument. It is so beautiful when it's all lit up! When you stand up on the hill that it's on, you can see all over DC - to the White House, back to the reflecting pool and the Lincoln Memorial. DC is just a gorgeous city at every time of day!!
