Christmas In The Village

Aunt Di wasn’t at the Village this year. She has been diagnosed with White Matter Disease. White Matter Disease causes strokes, dementia, and cognitive damage. Aunt Di can no longer drive and the tremors are getting worse.  We went anyway.  Santa was everywhere and the Village was decorated for the Christmas season. Yule all around us with even horse buggy rides. This year the event was on December 4  and the 5. If you ever get a chance to get to our end of the woods, this is one of the best things you can do with your family. They had popcorn, hot cider, hot cocoa, cookies, chestnuts, and so much more. All the people were there selling their soap, candles, grain, rocks, and various other items. The cook shack was open and all the cookies were .50 cents. The ice cream shop was open and had some ice cream in it. Everyone was keeping warm with wood stoves and electric fireplaces. It was a great time for all. Santa was there as well enjoying cookies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He was taking pictures with the kiddos and taking down their lists of what they want.

Santa told the youngest she gets to be naughty more than her sister so guess who got to have a naughty moment with Santa!

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful and since we no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

And that is what is happening now (or this past weekend). See you all soon love Em
