Leilani Ferrer (little sis to campers Tirell and Tiron) making an icicle ornament.
This past Sunday, Appel Farm had a very special visitor. Santa Claus, his wife, Mrs. Adele Claus (née von Hoerrneman), and his friend and helper, Humbles the Elf, took a break from their very busy schedules (less than 10 days until Christmas!) and stopped by Elmer, New Jersey to visit with their friends at Appel Farm. Jolly Old St. Nick (aka Santa) posed for pictures, listened to Christmas gift wish lists and asked the question, “Have you been naughty or nice?” to everyone who sat on his lap.
Left to right: Camp Staff Melissa Tevere, Natasha Thompson, Audrey Angeloni and Tracy Power; Campers Dylan and Emma Kelly and of course, the man of the hour – Kristopher Kringle!
In addition to meeting Santa, guests to Appel Farm were treated to cookies and hot chocolate, got to craft handmade ornaments for their Christmas trees, had their faces painted with snowflakes and snowmen and were entertained and amazed by the magic of The Balsters, a husband and wife magic duo from Chicago, Illinois, in their holiday show “Season’s Greetings.”
Sunday was such a magical way to get into the holiday mood!
What are you doing to create holiday cheer? These are the ornaments we made on Sunday. They are super simple if you want to try them at home! And they will definitely bring a bit of the magic of the Holiday season into your life!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM APPEL FARM!!!
