Dickens Fair - December 2008

We attended the Dickens Christmas Fair this year on December 6. It was a wonderful time had by all. There were 7 of us in our party who were dressed up. We took the RV over to San Francisco (well, Daily City, really) so that we would have a place to stay. It worked out really well, especially when Grandma and my daughter, Sara, needed naps. This was the first year that we stayed till the very end of the day. I was sad to see the evening end. I loved the atmosphere, the shows, the characters, and caroling, the smells, everything. And to top it off, my outfit won "best overall" in the costume contest put on by the GBACG. I was so thrilled.
