Christmas Village

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is setting up our Christmas Village. This year my mom let me  extend the dining room table, push it against the wall and use the entire thing to display our collection.

The train is our newest addition

I used cotton to create the snow and a few of the kids got buried in it...

Love these :)

My grandpa on my dad's side was a Coca Cola distributor. We love Coke!

What's your favorite Christmas tradition (apart from decorating the tree)?

Oh, I love Christmas villages!! Yours is no exception. Total Christmas perfection.

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is setting up our little fragile nativity scene. My sis and I would trade off years, so I'd scheme every year on how I could outdo my sis' set up. :)

Oh, I've always loved Christmas villages! We never had one, though we do have a really lovely nativity, and setting that up was always one of my favorite Christmas traditions.

I'm in love with your Christmas village! We're not able to set anything too extensive up because I have two very nosy pups. :)

I hope you're having a wonderful week, swissy missy! :)

I love your village! :) One of my favorite Christmas traditions is getting in the car with the family close to Christmas day (usually Christmas Eve) and driving through all of the neighborhoods to look at all of the Christmas lights while we listen to Christmas music :)

Oh this village is simply adorable!! So perfect especially with the lights off :) One of my xmas traditions is eating dessert by candlelight next to the tree.. Strange I know, but I find it so comforting!

I love Christmas villages! our family also puts one up together, and we always make our Chicago White Sox baseball stadium and the little baseball players front and center in ours.
