We made it back out to the National Christmas Tree and saw the state trees and all the train exhibits. I guess I’m not kid-lover enough to appreciate the Christmas tree ornaments made by random 5th graders from each state. I really would rather have seen what the state artisans could concoct. Sorry. Bah humbug and so forth. The train villages were wonderful, though.
