A Lifetime Christmas Shed Downtown

christmas_village_streetview_640.jpgSince its beginning in 1962, Christmas Village in Ogden, Utah has grown to an extraordinary seasonal attraction. Each year thousands of tourists and citizens come to view the Christmas lights and cottages, drawing visitors from great distances as well as local families who have made it part of their holiday tradition. Spectators find themselves in a dazzling winter wonderland set aglow with Christmas lights and a unique setting of cottages modeled after Santa’s village at the North Pole.

christmas-cottage-1.jpgThis year, Lifetime joined in the local community Christmas tradition by transforming a Lifetime shed into a cottage. Complete with windows, flooring and steel trusses, the shed naturally made for a great cottage in this winter wonderland setting! The steel-reinforcements on its plastic walls and roof gave Santa, the elves, and their woodland friends a sound shelter. When we assembled the shed, our cottage-building experts (prototype shop professionals by day) also cut through the front doors and inserted polycarbonate panels-- the same material used in some of our basketball backboards and shed windows, so smaller visitors could easily see inside.

The Lifetime cottage is themed “Santa’s Backyard”, and one of our engineers and his wife did a fantastic job decking out the space with elves, lights, candy, and a Lifetime Basketball Hoop and Helicopter Teeter-Totter that animates with the push of a button from outside! It was pushed so much the first few nights, they actually had to go and check on it. :)christmas-cottage-2.jpg  If you’re in downtown Ogden this season, be sure to check out the Christmas Village and Lifetime's cottage!   

              SANTA'S BACKYARD
 
Tis the day after Christmas and as we all know,
Santa is having a party at the North Pole.
 
The Elves are all there to have lots of fun,
Even a couple of Reindeer decided to come.
 
In Santa's Backyard there is plenty to do,
Tetherball, teeter-totter, shooting hoops too.
 
The Candy Maker is sharing his favorite treat,
His canes are delicious and oh, so sweet.
 
The Birds all think the trapeze a great swing,
But Santa just wants to dance and sing.
 
Being together is a wonderful sign,
That making memories will last a Lifetime.

What a great job! I'll make sure to check out the "workshop" when I stop by Christmas Village. Lifetime does so well at serving and being involved in the community.

Beautiful and looks like fun. I'm hoping to visit with my Grandsons this year. I live in Texas but they live in Clearfield, Utah. Hope we get to do that.

Plastic Sheds
Plastic storage sheds are a must-have for anyone that has a yard. Storage sheds in general help you to keep your tools and other yard stuff organized, out of the weather, and out of the yard. Bags of compost or fertilizer store well in a weather-proof shed, and if you lock your outdoor storage shed these potentially harmful bags can be stored out of reach of children, pets, or vandals. Lifetime plastic garden sheds have some distinct benefits over traditional stick-framed sheds, and dont even get me started about flimsy metal sheds. Wood sheds need to be maintained to keep them safe from the elements. Walls and doors need to be scraped and painted somewhat frequently to keep the exterior weather-tight, shingles need to be replaced every so often. Insects and rodents love wood, its a natural element, they can eat, gnaw thro...
I Mulch, You Mulch, We All Mulch
This past Saturday was yard day at our house. Nine solid hours of pruning trees, trimming bushes, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and spreading mulch. (Why didnt someone remind me that my hamstrings will be extremely sore from bending over all day. Its been two days and I still cant sit down without using my arms to lower myself!) Its the project we tackle every spring. I actually look forward to it. I love being outdoors and feeling productive. (Of course, that enthusiasm quickly fades after the first few hours which is why we plow through it all in one day.) Our backyard has several forests as my kids call them, which are really just large clusters of trees with mulch around them. Very pretty, but itrequires a lot of mulch - over three yards (or pick-up trucks full) to be exact. This year, we turned the mulching into a f...
Family Fun with the Kayaks!
I had a family reunion a couple weeks ago. This is not your typical family reunion with cousins youve never met, let alone seen, before. My extended family is very close-knit and (I hope its safe to say) we all look forward to the DFR (aka Dixon Family Reunion) every year, truly. My dad and his two siblings take turns planning it each year. This year was my Uncle Brents turn, so we went to Pineview Dam near Huntsville, Utah. I have about 20 cousins in the age range of 28-35. They all have spouses and, on average, 4 kids each; so our family is pushing close to 60 people. The kids range from brand new babies to 16 years old. As you know, Lifetime acquired the kayak company, Dragonfly Innovation, back in February. I bought two of the blueCalypso kayaks and decided Id take them up to the lake and see what kind of reaction they g...
