Hi everyone—it has always been a tradition around here to go visit Christmas Tree Lane. Christmas just isn’t complete without a tour of the beautiful trees in so many themes. Actually, these trees are for sale…complete with all the trimmings, or you can get a list of ornaments and trims to duplicate the look on your own tree. It’s always a treat to follow the path through the Lane behind some little ones and watch their faces glow in excitement. This is where a small Craig held a detailed conversation with the mechanical Santa, and where toddler Brian hid from the trapeze swinging mechanical monkey. We still look for old favorite pieces like the growing…and then melting snowman. I remember baby Brian clapping with delight watching him. Ahhh…sweet memories! So here we go…keep in mind that happy Christmas music was playing until the later displays where religious Christmas carols played. Also…most of the display are animated .
Loved the ice skating Minnie….. that’s Mickey skating on the back of the “pond”…..
Hewey, Dewey, and Louie!!
The polar bear section was so cute…..
I just LOVED this one…notice the penguin stuck halfway into the ice…Loved the above water/ under water idea!
Now we’re getting into the religious portion starting with Bethlehem……
and the Holy Family…..
There were many more scenes, but this gives you a good idea of how lovely it is….the lights are very low so it sparkles with the tree lights. I hope you enjoyed the tour…it then empties into the greenhouses with hundreds of poinsettias , orchids, and houseplants. Then several other sections hold the tree ornaments and trims. Every year it is such a Merriment!! Please visit our Merriment hostess’…Misi and Robyn (links to the right ) and the other wonderful posts by the other participants of the Merriment Chain! ——-Jan
