Dhonna and Bobby Goodale held their annual Christmas Alive! house tour celebration at their Flanders home on Sunday afternoon.

The Goodales opened their beautifully decorated home to raise money for children who have lost one or both parents or are in foster care, families in shelters and neighborhood families struggling this holiday.

The house was adorned with hundreds of Santas and elves, several Christmas trees (including two hanging upside down in the “Grand Room) and countless other decorations.

Animator Don Duga, creator of Frosty the Snowman, roamed the house sketching all the activity while actor and singer/songwriter Chaz Shepherd sang Christmas songs.
