We had lots of new ideas in our booth this season, including our wildly popular multi-layer lake signs, handmade wooden sleighs, pallet-board Christmas trees, and beautiful handcrafted cedar furniture by our dear friend, Wes. With classic Christmas music and laughter floating out of the booth and an ever-growing line of children gathering for face-painting, our booth was packed Saturday!
Once again, the Elma Country Christmas proves to be one of our very favorite events of the season. We were delighted to meet old friends and have the privilege of making new ones, and be a part of a truly grand Christmas event.
The morning of the Elma Country Christmas also happened to be on the last weekend of hunting season, and us Esterly girls decided to be daring and dress up as reindeer! Needless to say, these does had smiles and laughter directed their way much of the day! It was great fun weaving our way through crowds and seeing smiles blossom on faces around us, then with a shout of surprise having a friend discover they new the face beyond the costume!
