Look at this gorgeous specimen; it's way too big for our homes, but it sure made a great backdrop for our holiday card pictures
(another tradition we believe strongly in, but that's for another blog post).
We always opt to carry our tree back to the main entrance for shaking and bundling.
If you are not inclined to walk, however, the Oney's team can offer you a ride. Look at these beautiful horses!
Time for a quick shake, then it's through the nets.
We're now more than ready to head to the Christmas Shop's snack bar to thaw out and indulge in the annual fare.
Mom always has an apple donut, Dad and A.J. get the cinnamon rolls, Mark gets the chocolate covered pretzels, I get the frosted snowman cookie and we all enjoy hot cocoa or apple cider. Yum!
After snacks, time to shop! Look at these beautiful handmade wreaths! Now imagine how they smell!This shop has everything from ornaments to decor items, handmade bows and, of course, stockings.
