Every year, since moving to Oregon, we have made our yearly trip to Macy's to see Santa and the wonderful Santaland. Skylar had just turned two the first year we went, and ever since that year (2004) we have enjoyed the Macy's Santaland so much. The Christmas decor is so amazing at the Portland Macy's and makes the kids feel so special. Our dream would be to see Santaland in the original Macy's in New York.
Maybe one of these Christmases soon.
Such a fun Santa Clause. He was so sweet and nice.
A few more birds to add to my collection. I have quite a collection going now. It's the highlight of the Macy's trip to me. New birds each year. Love it!
The train used to run along the top of the ceiling back in the 80s and the kids were able to ride on it around Santaland. Now it sits on the stage where the kids can still get inside, but it's just for show now.
Skylar is so big now that he can't even fit under the frame of the snowman anymore. :(
While we were there, Skylar mailed his letter to Santa in the Macy's Santa Mailbox.
If you don't have a Macy's near you, you can create your own letter here next year!
Skylar was "Elfing" it up the escalators on the way out. He said next year he needs to dress like "Buddy" the Elf to pull it off completely. Ha!
See our trip to Macy's last year here.
Our great friend, MacKenzie caught up with us and came along on our Santa adventures too. We made a stop at Peacock Lane in Portland and looked at the wonderful Christmas lights.
What happened this time last year?
