Yankee Candle Williamsburg

Williamsburg is home to one of Yankee Candle's flagship stores, so Trenton and I decided to venture up that way today with a couple of other moms and kiddos to check out the store and Christmas Village.

The store is HUGE. They have a whole Christmas village set up year-round where it snows every 20 minutes! There is also a Toyland, General Store, Fudge Shop, Popcorn Station, and Wax Works Station.

Santa came out for a visit while we were at the store. Trenton got to sit on his lap but was NOT very happy! I don't know if he was mad because he didn't like Santa, or if he was mad because sitting on Santa's lap meant he had to stop watching the huge mice puppets singing Hickory, Dickory, Dock (which he was really enjoying). After Trenton calmed down from his encounter with Santa, we were able to go to the Wax Works Station to dip some candles for our Christmas Tree (which is still in the garage waiting for me to put it up).

I think I'm going to have to hit up some after Christmas sales so that we can start our own mini Christmas Village. Trenton could have stood and looked at this thing all day!

The looks on Trenton's face are so funny that I couldn't pick just one pose, so I bought a CD with all of the pictures that they took!
