Christmas Village

Christmas Village is full of miniature replicas of some of the buildings in our city.  Others are miniature buildings to show other businesses/organizations with a Christmas theme.  At the end of the parade Santa Paws comes to his castle in Christmas Village and turns on the lights.  It is very bright!  The lights will stay on until just after the first of the new year.  Coming to Christmas Village is an annual tradition for many people.

Santa's elves are in the workshop behind us.
Mom thought this looked festive with our Christmas hats.  We disagreed.
This is a replica of a local hotel that is locally famous. 
Stanley felt sorry for the dalmatian stuck in this little building. 
It was exciting to see the elves and all the toys!
"Hello Mr. Snowman . . . can we come in?"
So many toys!
"I know a little girl who would like the dolls in this house!"
"I'm thinking this monkey looks kind of fun!"
"Really mom, the hats again?"
"We don't see any other dogs wearing hats!"
"You can take our picture but we will not smile!  We're scarred over the whole hat thing."

All in all there are 70 cottages in Christmas Village.  In tomorrow's post we'll show you what happened after it got dark.

Mommy made me a hat for Christmas too and I wasn't very happy about it either. You two sure look like you were having fun exploring the village.
