Alpine Village

Last year we were first time visitors to the Alpine Village at Trinity Baptist Church. It was such a fun Christmas outing for Addison that we have decided to add it to our Christmas "must-do" list.

In a nutshell, they turn the gym of Trinity Baptist Church into the Alpine Village. They have several small buildings such as, the candle shop, the card shop, and the book store. I believe that there were 10 or 11 shops in all. The children get to go into each shop, which is fabulously decorated like gingerbread houses and make a small craft. Addison made a candle, an ornament, an angel, reindeer food, a toy decorated a cookie, and picked out a book! Oh and the best part of all - the upstairs of the church is transformed into the North Pole with Santa, Mrs. Clause and elves! It is really a fun and festive time for the family as well and the last stop is a live nativity scene. It helps us to remember the true meaning of this wonderful season. This year my niece was able to join Addison at the Alpine Village, here are a few shots. Thanks to my sister in law for these pics; I forgot my camera!!

Charlotte and Addison inside the gingerbread shop.

The girls inside the snowman shop. You can see Charlotte's snowman in the bottom left hand corner of the picture. Oh and you can see the fake snow in Char's hair - they have a play area of fake snow that is just amazing to the kids!!
Sweet cousins telling Santa what they want for Christmas!

I must post a Tiny the elf update! He has made snowmen out of marshmallows and he took a ride on our Rudolph decoration!!

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas season with whatever outings may come your way!
