Tuesday, Tuesday

Here it is, already the 8th of December. Boy, is time flying!!

Our lots in DC and Chevy Chase are rocking and rolling! Dan and Bryan are reporting that they have some very nice trees on their lots. Wreaths and roping are also available, as are stands for larger trees.

The tree lot at the farm was crazy this past weekend! Lots of new faces and lots of familiar ones as well. It is really neat to see all the kids and how they change from year to year. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy being there!!

There was also SNOW! It snowed all day Saturday and while it was wet and cold, it sure was beautiful! It also helped to put everyone in the holiday spirit and that was contagious. That sure helped us forget how wet we were! I was totally unprepared for the day and, as a result, once I got wet, I never dried out until I got home.  Lesson learned! Bring a change of clothes, just in case!! LOL! Ohh, and a hat!

Sunday, we feared, would be a big muddy mess, but it never got warm enough to really thaw, which worked in our favor. No mud is a good thing!  The roads were clear and the ground was white and the shed was warm and toasty.

All in all, it was a great weekend.

Ohh, what a day!!

So, last Friday, Black Friday, we took the tree to the White House. What fun it was! We all got a tour, had some delicious(and beautiful!) cookies, drank some hot apple cider, and, the best part, the kids were good!!Got to meet Mrs. Obama. In person, she is stunning. Really, so down to Earth and real, I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, the whole vibe that the White House and it’s residents gave off was very comfortable. You could almost feel the excitement and happiness that the family has. It certainly was an experience to remember.

All in all, it was an exciting beginning to our Christmas Tree season!
