Santa's Village minus Santa!!

Ok, so we have been trying to get to Santa's village since the day after Thanksgiving, but it has rained so much we have not been able to go. So, tonight we loaded up with BIG plans....to see Santa Claus and let Anna Beth ride on the "hump" in the front seat while looking at the Botanical Gardens Christmas lights! WELL, everyone else in North Alabama had the exact same idea we had, imagine that! We did make it to Santa's Village, but the line to see Santa only had about 200 people in line (not exaggerating) so we were able to most of the other activities. When we headed to the Botanical Gardens the line to get in was literally back to the interstate and about a mile down the other way. So needless to say, we have a lot of making up to do for Anna Beth because she was completely mislead the entire evening. Here are a few pictures from the evening!

Anna Beth writing her Christmas wish list to Santa!

Anna Beth was a snowman!!! By far, the cutest snowman I have ever seen!

We liked the blow up penguins!

Not so much the teddy bear!

There were ladies clogging, they were really good~

Anna Beth loved the Reindeer. She kept waiving and saying "Hey reindeer"

I am not sure which reindeer this was? I am thinking Comet!
All in all, we had a fantastic time, but next year we will not be waiting until 2 days before Christmas to go if at all possible!!!

  1. That looks like soooooooooooo much fun! We did the Galaxy of lights but not Santa's Village. I actually thought it was a little "too old" for Ava, but they must have changed it since I went years ago. We'll have to put that on our list of things to do next Christmas! Love the pictures! I know Anna Beth loves & enjoys y'all so much!
