So after reading an old friend's blog, I remembered I wanted to go to this place in Richardson with Joey! It's called Santa's Village, and it is so much fun for the little ones :) There were something like 18 little houses that you could go to. One was for writing letters to Santa, one was to see Santa, and more! I was sicky last week, but it was the last weekend of the village, so we grinned, bared it, and went with Nonny, Dedecek, Aunt Vicky, Uncle Ricky, Amanda, Brandon, Hannah, and Madison in tow. It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait to go next year when Joey's a bit older and has a baby brother or sister who can go too :) Here are some pics of the evening!
Here's Joey writing her letter to Santa..she liked the stamps and the colors..she didn't do so much of the writing :) After the kids write their letter, they get to put it in the mailbox where they will deliver it to Santa himself!!
This was at the Beary Good hospital where the kids got to be measured and weighed. They also got these really annoying...uh I mean fun noise makers at this house!
This was the symphony house where the girls got to play instruments. It was so loud in this house, and the 2 young men who were working in the house said they had to be there for 2 hours...I don't think I could do that!
Here is Brandon holding Madison, and Johnny holding Joey....they were window shopping...these windows were filled with "jewelry". These girls are definitely girls, and daddy's girls at that!
These polar bears moved...it was cute
Here are the girls giving a big cheesy grin!
Family Photo Op..Joey got the cookie she's holding from Mrs. Clause herself!
And here's Joey in the Reindeer Barn. They painted a red dot on her nose and gave us reindeer food as we left (aka hay).
And that was it! Super fun :) It was a little cold, but it was so worth it! We will surely head back next year! Merry Christmas!
