Saturday night we headed out to Santa in the Park in Arab, Alabama, to wander through the park and look at the lights. It was absolutely freezing. I was just wearing a light jacket but I stayed pretty warm.
It could have been the insulation in the jacket keeping me warm. It could also have been the bitterness and vitriol that came from getting annihilated in the Iron Bowl.
So, War Eagle to keeping warm.
At the park the kids headed over to the craft room. Some of the minions were very enthusiastic about making crafts.
And some of them weren’t.
The crafts were actually really cute. The boys chose to do make these clothes pin Christmas figures.
It was incredibly easy to make – even for uncrafty little kids. Seriously, isn’t that just dying to be put on Pinterest?
The crafts were a real win.
Unlike the dang Auburn/Alabama game.
The fun didn’t end at the craft table. Oh no! There’s plenty more holiday glee to be had in this Christmas Wonderland.
- Visit Santa’s toy shop
- Go inside Santa’s home
- Have fun at the grist mill (with reindeer food no less!)
- Live music in the country church.
Plus the lights! One of the event highlights is walking through the park and enjoying all the holiday lights. There are more than 2 million of them to see! Now that’s a lot of Christmas for one park, wouldn’t you agree?
