Santa Claus at the North Pole!

 A lot of people don't realize that there is an entire town in Alaska that is decorated year round as a Santa Claus village. It is appropriately named 'North Pole'. We took advantage of the warmer temperatures today [12 degrees above zero] to go and visit Santa Claus' house!
 Annaliese was standoffish at first like any other normal baby but as soon as she got close to his beard she was mesmerized. It was really funny. And when it came time to take the picture she had the cutest facial expression. I mean seriously, hilarious.
 Erich refused to go up there and take a picture with Santa and Annaliese without me so we all took a family photo with him. I really wish i would have worn a different shirt though.
 In Santa's house he had a standing plush moose and Annaliese couldn't help but touch the fur.
 Same went for the standing plush polar bear. Here she is petting it's arm.
 The two pictures below are of some ice sculptures in front of Santa's house.!
 You could actually sit in the sleigh to take pictures if you wanted but it had started snowing so we snapped a few pics as we were leaving.
 Here's a picture of Santa's house from the road.
And of course, the reindeer playing in Santa's back yard.
