… swanson's at christmas

swansons4

our favorite nursery, swanson's, goes all out in december. we visited yesterday to enjoy all the holiday goodness and stock up on poinsettias, cyclamen, mistletoe and greenery.

my favorite thing to see is the model train. this year the theme was the yukon, which made me giddy with its snowy, wintery loveliness.

they also have live reindeer, which all the kids love. (though ingrid, that clever little baby, slept through the whole thing. i suppose next year she might be more apt to appreciate it.)

everyone needs a charlie brown christmas tree, right? with a few lights, some ornaments, and linus's blanket, i'm sure this little guy will be looking great.

it really is starting to feel like christmas, isn't it?

  3. Those Charlie Brown trees are hilarious! Are they a different type of tree or did they really just not water a regular one? :D
