Country Lights

One of our favorite Christmas activities is to go to the Lake Farm Park for their Country Lights event.  There is a workshop where the kids can build a wooden toy with the help of "Santa's helpers". They have a wall of toys to choose from to build, then you make it and paint it. Next you can go on a horse drawn ride to see lights which they have put up outside. Going on there are milking demonstrations, model trains set up, a horse show, and sitting on Santa's lap. This is our third year going to this, it is definitely a highlight of our Christmas festivities!

Lincoln and Reuben painting. Lincoln made a train and Reuben made Superman.

After the horse show the kids went on a pony ride

Lincoln loved Santa can't you tell? 

I am sad to say that this is the only picture we took all year of the four kids together. I was looking for a picture for Christmas cards and realized that we have a bunch of them not all together but not one with all of them. So... here is my first new year's resolution, to take lots of pictures throughout the year with all four kids in them.

Those pictures are priceless. I love the ones of Evie on the horse (she looks so unimpressed), and Lincoln on Santa's lap. I remember Evie's coat when Kaitlyn wore it. It seems to strange that she's big enough to fit it! I need to see you guys more often!
