Countdown To Christmas

 

CLEVELAND, Ga. – Count down to Christmas with the Cabbage Patch Kids® and Little People®. Make reservations for a Pancake Breakfast with Santa on Monday, December 22, 2014, in the beautifully decorated Ballroom at BabyLand General Hospital, in Cleveland, Ga. 706-865-2171, “0”.

Enjoy this year’s fabulous Christmas wonderland on 650 acres in the North Georgia Mountains, just an hour north of Atlanta.  A beautiful Southern Style Mansion with 67 columns elegantly support a covered 20,000 sq. ft. porch with seasonal views of the mountains. Delight in the magical decorations including over 75 different indoor Christmas trees, ranging from stunning 10-foot tall traditional trees to whimsical 3-foot tall themed trees.

New, this year is Milk and Cookies with Mrs. Claus. The woman behind the man, Mrs. Claus, manages Santa and a house full of elves at the North Pole year round. Mrs. Claus enjoyed last year’s visit to BabyLand General so much; she agreed to return to host Milk and Cookies with Mrs. Claus while Santa visits with the children. Open seating for Milk and Cookies will be from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Dec. 22, in the Ballroom, cost is $5. No reservations required.

Santa and Mrs. Claus agree with the Cabbage Patch Kids, “It’s always nice to have a little extra TLC (Tender Loving Care) during a hectic Holiday Season.”  Come and play with the Cabbage Patch Kids and get your TLC while celebrating the Holidays with your family. Let our LPN’s (Licensed Patch Nurses) and Doctors also give you an extra dose of “Imagicillin” and you may get a glimpse of Santa as he visits all the good girls and boys on his global trip  Christmas Eve.IMG_7769

Getting Santa’s ride ready for BabyLand’s Appalachian Christmas.

Santa tells us that after his appearance at BabyLand’s Appalachian Christmas on Nov. 22, he has to take a quick trip to the North Pole to check on his elves.

Car collector, Jerry Singer of Cleveland, Ga., will pick Santa up in a fire-engine red, 1923 Seagrave Boattail Speedster.  A five-year labor of love, this restoration project combines art and the automotive world through beautifully, handcrafted wood, metal castings and a historically, classic Seagrave Engine.

Just like so many of our Cabbage Patch Kids and Little People… for kids of all ages that love firemen and fire trucks, this one of a kind work of art will be at BabyLand from 2:30 p.m. till Santa is ready to go at 4 p.m.

1923 Seagraves Boattail Speedster from the Collection of Jerry Singer will pick up Santa at 4 p.m.
