There are some books that you read and the story just sticks with you forever. Christmas Farm is one of those books.

Wilma had grown sunflowers and petunias for years, but she wants a change. As she looks at her Christmas tree, she knows what change she needs to make. With the help of her neighbor boy Parker, Wilma plants 62 dozen balsam tree starts.

Year after year, Wilma and Parker care for the trees until they are big enough to open a Christmas Tree Farm.

How many trees will perish and how many will survive? What causes trees to die off before they become Christmas trees?

This is such a simple story about the life of a balsam tree, but is also a touching story as we watch Parker grow along with the trees and imagine the special relationship he shares with Wilma as his mentor.

The Goodnight Train heads out on Christmas Eve racing Santa thru the snowy landscape. Jingle bells are ringing, fa la la’s are singing, candy canes, cookies and reindeer on rooftops are all part of this cute little bedtime story.

With colorful artwork and lots of wintery and Christmas scenes on each page, this book kept her attention

A good read for pre-school to early elementary age kiddos.

In the World of Weeks, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, the evening book readings are in full swing and on December 1st, the girls will begin opening the drawers on their Advent Calendars.

Our shopping is almost done, which is huge for us. Christmas music, is played regularly in the house and the car. I have continued to watch a holiday movie each evening for my unwind time.

The one thing hubby and I can’t seem to escape, is the ongoing conversation about retirement location. I think it’s time to set a goal and have a final decision made by January 1st. That would be a great way to start the New Year!
