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,
