Get a Tree and Visit With Santa
St Croix Valley Trees has just received word that there will be a special opportunity to visit with Santa Claus this year at our tree farm. Santa will be making a visit Sunday, December 4 and Sunday, December 11 one to four in the afternoon. More details can be found at STCVT web site: stcroixvalleytrees.com. There will not be a charge for you to take pictures with Santa but a donation to a holiday charity - Trees for Troops, Salvation Army Red Kettle or Habitat for Humanity - will be accepted and appreciated.
Some People Are Really Excited for Christmas!
Cindy came out to St Croix Valley Christmas Trees to reserve her tree on a lovely, warm fall day. She was so excited for the holiday season that she decided to decorate her tree while it stands in the field. Of course she will add all the children's ornaments when she takes the tree home in early December but for now Cindy's special tree shines brightly in the sun on the hill in the field.
The Straw Mountain Tunnels are Being Built
It's a beautiful day,not only because the sky is blue and the breeze fallish but because the straw mountain tunnels are getting built. It's a big deal every year to get enough good, new straw bales to build the mountain tunnel maze. It's an even bigger deal to get great help here to work on construction.
Gathering Them In
All of us had a lot of fun bringing in all the pumpkins from the garden between the east Christmas tree fields. Just like the apple crop this year, the pumpkin harvest was abundant. All the grandchildren could take home as many pumpkins as they wanted for carving and there will still be many left for my decorating. All these pumpkins will look nice in the yard when the pre-season Christmas tree guests come out to reserve their holiday tree.
