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!

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.
