Winterfest…

on December 16, 2012

We decided to attend the Winter festival in our local area.  The biggest draw for the kids was the promise of snow :).  In an area of the US that does not generally get snow for Christmas, this is quite a treat.

When we first arrived, there were tables set up where the girls could write out their letters to Santa and drop them in a red and white mailbox that’s destination was “The North Pole”.  There were also Christmas cards there that the girls colored and signed and put in a camouflaged mailbox that was destined for a US Marine in Afghanistan who wouldn’t be able to be home for the holidays.  I really liked that table :).

And you don’t think we’d skip a chat with Santa do you??

Then we had to check out the animals in the petting area…

I don’t think that man was supposed to be feeding the goats popcorn.  But they really liked it.

Super fun!

Last, but not least, we had to feel the ice sculpture.  Huh, who knew it would be cold?  Wow.  LOL

The girls had a great time and I had a pretty good afternoon as well.
