I hope everyone is having a very joyful holiday season! I am very behind on all my usual Christmas preparations, because of recovering from eye surgery, but our Colorado weather makes me feel as if I am living in a virtual Christmas card! Our neighborhood has received a few inches of snow on and off for the past two weeks and everything looks so beautiful. (All photos will enlarge if clicked on)
My oldest grandson was turning seven this past weekend, so to celebrate we all went to White Fence Farm -- a family style restaurant
I took these photos last summer of the beautiful grounds and animals on the restaurant's grounds.
The placemats show a map of all the White Fence Farm features--please click on to enlarge. You can also see the map and more photos of the farm online at this link.
They serve unlimited appetizers with their dinner menu of hot corn fritters, pickled red beets, creamy coleslaw, red kidney bean salad, and a special blend cottage cheese. They have a full dinner menu but are famous for their fried chicken.. It's very unique and very mid-western!
There are many charming places and displays inside the buildings. My granddaughter enjoyed the play farm house and the talking chickens...
...while my grandsons enjoyed the "pig chute" indoor slide
Every nook and cranny of White Fence Farm was beautifully decorated for Christmas!
It was fun to see all the fun and festive touches. I even took my Christmas card photo of our grandchildren in one section.
The restaurant gift shop had many beautiful Christmas items for sale.
There is even a room that has year round decorations that are for sale called the "Colorado Christmas Room. "
We gathered early so the children could play but it was now time for dinner and we entered the main dining room.
As we were checking our menus Santa Claus came to our table and surprised us all!
Santa sat down and spent quite a nice time talking to all the grandchildren. They were thrilled!
After dinner my grandson was surprised again with an ice cream sundae brought by the wait staff, who were also singing "Happy Birthday" to him!
It was a very Merry and Bright 7th Birthday celebration for our dear grandson "L"! He brings a lot of love and joy to our lives.....he's a wonderful big brother, soccer player, karate champ, cub scout and future scientist!
I hope you are also having a Merry and Bright day!\
I also wanted to thank my friend, Linda, of the blog Chow Ciao Linda, for surprising me with a tin of her home made anginetti cookies. You can get the recipe for these light and flavorful cookies on her blog here. Everything Linda makes is so delicious! She really brightened my day while I was recovering from the first phase of my eye surgery. Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes!
