Guest post by Paula at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

A widely circulated story of an incident in the school taught by Andrew Crawford is of the famous spelling match, in which Abe Lincoln helped one of his classmates spell the word “defied.” 

Katy Roby was asked to spell this word and continued as far as “d-e-f” when she paused, not knowing whether to use a “y” or an “I”.  Looking over toward Abe she saw him point his finger at his eye and immediately took the hint, spelling the word correctly.

Get Stable-ized

Oct 16, 2014

“We detected your video may be shaky. Would you like YouTube to stabilize it?”

No thanks, YouTube. I’m riding a horse named Eagle, so all of the movement and bounces are perfectly natural.

And, it is very much stabilized. 

Santa’s Stable-ized, that is.

In our latest video, you’ll notice that the fall colors pop with every bend and hill you experience during a peaceful trail ride at Santa’s Stables.

Eat Dessert First

Oct 14, 2014

Well, it's one of my favorite days of the year. No, it's not Christmas yet, or my birthday. It's National Dessert Day!

Some people need an excuse to indulge. I do not; in fact, I think dessert is one of the main staples in my "diet." Either way, I'm here to help.

It's fall so dessert ideas that first come to mind include pumpkin-flavored... everything!

Decadent fudge flavors from the Santa Claus Christmas Store? Yes please – I'll take one of each.

Coconut cream latte at Kringle Haus Werkstatt? Sounds amazing!

Pumpkin funnel cakes with pecans and cream cheese icing at Holiday World? Sign me up.

Gourmet hot chocolate from Santa's Candy Castle? Yes but can I have two cups?

Okay, I'm starving now. Did I mention I love dessert?

If you're not into the sweets (is that possible?), no worries! There are lots of options to please your palette throughout the area. Try spicy wings from Hoosier Land Pizza, homemade potato chips at The Rustic - don't forget the homemade ranch for dipping, or cheesey bread from Frosty's Fun Center.

So many options and only three meals a day! Find a list of restaurants with location info and a link to menus right here.
