Santa's Village

On Thursday the second graders took a trip to Santa's Village at UT Martin. I had never even heard of the place before I found out about the field trip. It turned out to be a pretty neat place. It was indoors (thankfully!) at the Ag Center. There was an Enchanted Forest filled with lighted trees and displays, a petting zoo, rides and Santa was there himself.

Having seen the real Santa when we were in the mountains for Thanksgiving, Rylie knew this wasn't the real deal. She even made up something to tell him he wanted because she knew the real Santa already knew what she really wanted. I explained to her that the other Santa's were actually helpers of Santa and they report back to Santa what the children want. Now she's worried she confused Santa. Good thing we have our Elf on the Shelf, Mike, to clear things up for the Jolly Ole Elf.

The kids had a blast at the village. They were about the only kids there so they pretty much had free range of the entire place. When it was time to leave we were able to take the kids with us. I had rode with AG's mom so the girls got some more time together on the way home. It was such a nice day to spend with Ry and friends.
