I heard Santa exclaim as he flew out of sight,
Merry Christmas to all
All Spartys good night
Wolverines enjoy the fright
Spartan football still rules the night!

We took the kids up to see the Shadrack’s Christmas display up at Smokies Park tonight. To see what one would see while driving through the display, watch this:

While there they have a small petting zoo, camel rides, and small amusement area. While everyone took turns feeding and petting the various animals there, one lama took a shine to Nicklas:

Inside the Smokies baseball park Hot Cocoa and treats were available for all as evidenced by Brenna who said thanks for sharing the funnel cake…now it’s time for a cookie!!!

But the ‘best for last’ is when Santa told Nicklas that he needed to do a better job in picking up that mess he called a bedroom:

Wagons with hay bales for seats on the way to pick pumpkins.

Nick went on a field trip with his class.  The trip was to Oakes Farm in Corryton, TN.  It took about an hour to get there.  There were many things to do, slides, jumping pillow, corn maze and a petting zoo.  The kids were allowed to run around for about two hours and then went on a hayride to pick pumpkins.  Nick and I ended up bringing four large pumpkins home!  It was a nice day, sunny and a little windy.

Nicklas & “Annie Get Your Gun”

by on Oct.26, 2011, under Nicklas, October 2011

Nicklas was a prop boy and flag bearer for the Tellico Village Players rendition of Annie Get Your Gun. Being that he appeared on stage, he needed make-up…and we got it on video!

The video file is LARGE and may take a minute to buffer and start playing….and you still may need to press play. You’ve been warned….
