The 2008 Christmas Tree Chronicles

Every year we drive over to Singer's Glen to the Heartland Christmas tree farm.

Somewhere hidden among the pines is a rare tree that bears fresh candy canes-- the best you've ever tasted!

Ah-ha! We have discovered it!

The reason I didn't film the whole trip back to the car is that they rescued us half-way back with an ATV and a trailer.

In the old creamery, there's another magic tree. This one grows ornaments for children to pick and take home.

And then, after a few false starts...

We got our Christmas card picture taken on the old sleigh!
