2015 Christmas Events for Children

Two years ago, I took Lilly and Amy's three boys to the Figge Museum for a Gingerbread house event...

We had a wonderful time.  They made houses out of Graham Crackers, and they were all so proud.
No matter what part of the country you live in -- there are dozens of special events going on at this time of year.  So many events -- it's easy to lose track, or miss an opportunity.  So, I put together a list for my nieces and nephews....

While there, enjoy craft demonstrations and sales, letters to Santa in the General Store, refreshments at the soda fountain, holiday music, and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Hey -- 'Tis the Season!!  THE FESTIVITIES have already started -- and there are SO MANY THINGS to choose from!!  So, if you don't live in my part of the world -- spend a little time on the internet to see what's happening in your neck of the woods.  Make a list for the young families in your life -- they have way too much stuff to keep track of...

Or -- just grab a kid and enjoy the Season...
