The Village

The Christmas Village is up!  It has spent too many years being cooped up in the attic.  It was time for her to come down and spread joy through the Christmas holiday.

Along with my helper "Elf Chris" we unpacked boxes and set up houses, trees,  people and lights.  Had to make sure there was plenty of snow and voila the village came to life!

Come take a walk down Main Street with us…..

You'll see folks enjoying a campfire by the skating pond in front of the school yard

A family coming back from a trek in the woods to cut down their Christmas Tree

Partners skating at the ice rink on the outskirts of town just over the bridge

Children building a snowman in front of Town Hall and dressing him in a bright red scarf to keep out the winter chill

The conductor checking the arrival time of the next train as it brings family and friends home for the holiday

Take in the view as you ride up the mountain in the gondola to the upper village

Go on a winter sleigh ride through the mountain pass

Take your sleds and saucers over to the sliding hill for an afternoon of fun

Each time I've set up this village it takes on a new life.  But the sense of community and love within is there each and every year.

God bless and Merry Christmas,
