Family Thanksgiving Travels

Kaitlyn, Austin, Glenn and I arrived at the Biltmore Estate on 
Wednesday afternoon to begin our three-night Thanksgiving weekend visit. 
After checking in at the Inn on the Biltmore Estate, we began with
a shuttle ride to the house where we had a delicious dinner 
at the Stable Restaurant and shopping before participating in 
the Christmas Candlelight Tour. 
This is the most festive time of the year with every room decorated 
for Christmas, and live choral or instrumental musical entertainment.
It is also the busiest time to visit and a little difficult to get just the right photos.

The Christmas trees were decorated with different themes. 
The one below is one of my favorites in red, white and blue. 

We have toured the house several times over the years during the Christmas season,
and I always anticipate seeing and smelling the gingerbread replica of the house.
The aroma greets the visitors while walking toward the kitchen in the basement where it is displayed. 

The Christmas tree in the servant's dining room was small
and was decorated with handmade ornaments. 

This concluded our Wednesday. 
The next post will highlight our Thanksgiving Day adventures.
