i am hoping to help create those memories for my boys. granted they are less swedish and they do have other cultures for which to celebrate...but st. lucia day is dear to my heart and our family and i hope to pass that on...even if i don't ever have a little st. lucia of my own :) - there were loads of awesome vendors - not just dala horses and candleabras - there were really neat swedish designers - of jewelry and wooden toys and clothes and i dont know - a lot of cool stuff. i was able to get some shirts for the boys - i will post a pic when they dress in it - so cute! also of course i got my tomte... still need to take a picture of him...he is guarding our mantle right now..very busy.
it was good fun - i loved the size of the l.a. one - next year it would be better to go with others...so someone could stay with the kids while someone else waited in lines...there wasn't a whole lot for the little kids to do, but bryson did find the crafts table and of course the fishing pond, where he got a little goodie bag of stickers and suckers...he took all the pictures of St. Lucia - i think he had a little crush - i don't blame him - she was gorgeous!
God Jul everyone!
