Last weekend, we took the boys to The Alpine Village. Several of my friends had taken their kids and everyone had great things to say about it (it also doesn't hurt that it is absolutely free). We got there at 10:00 am, signed in and they gave the boys their ticket.

The first stop we made was the North Pole. We hopped on the elevator and headed on up to see the "Big Guy" himself. This year provided yet another great Santa picture to add to the mix. (click HERE to see what our previous pictures looked like. Go ahead and look...it is definitely worth your while, Ha!)

In the toy shop, Jackson got to flex his hammering skills and he made a top.
He finished out his time in the Village by making this cute candycane Reindeer.
Before we left, we went by the living nativity. As we were heading home, we were talking about all that we had done. I asked Jackson "What was your favorite part?" He said with no hesitation "Seeing the Baby Jesus." That melted my heart, my little boy gets it. Yes Santa is fun, but Christmas is about Jesus birth. The perfect Son of God sent to the world to be our sacrifice.
