Christmas on the Frontier

Last Thursday December 10th we made a spur of the moment decision to attend Christmas on the
Frontier in Palo Pinto the town of our county seat about 12 miles West of Mineral Wells. They have held this event annually for years but we never attended. Seems as an adult you're more willing to do things like this when you have little ones!

It wasn't really cold but cool enough to need a jacket. Granddad gets him some coffee while Kennedy drinks hot chocolate.

Warming up by the fire.

The "guys" having a discussion!

We saw Santa dancing!

Then the kids got a picture with him. Kashton did not want to smile!

This is so sweet! They held hands of their own initiative!

This picture just makes me laugh.

There was an old cabin set up in the time era. The adults thought it would be a great place for a group photo however there was very little light and it was hard to see when I took the picture. There were other people trying to look around the cabin so I got one shot and this is it! Korin decided to protest just as I took the picture.

We went inside the old Jail which is like a mini museum. Lots of artifacts. Kashton got so excited about the Longhorn on the wall.

We ran into an old friend took time to pose with the kids.

We made our way to stand in line for a hayride driven by a tractor. There were several of these lighting the way similar to the era years ago.

I love how they decorated the wagon with lights.

Korin is still not very cooperative!

The kids seemed to enjoy it for the most part. They are too young to really appreciate history or even understand it! We had a good time.

Have a good one!


  1. Looks like a fun event! Can't believe you'd never gone but then you are right...having little ones changes what you go to which is a good thing! :)
