Merry Christmas Eve!

December 24, 2009

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. My mom has been out here visiting, hence I haven't had much time to blog! This week the husband, mom, and I went to Meijer Gardens to see their Christmas trees from all over the world. Everyone else in Grand Rapids must have had the same idea as us because it was so crowded! Regardless we had fun looking at all of the trees. Our only complaint was that the trees were fake! Shouldn't a garden have real trees???
This tree was really pretty....I think it was from Poland but I can't remember for sure.

The outside was really pretty....but so cold! At least these trees were real.

They also had sing-a-long carriage rides....I wanted to go on one but I think I would have been the only one to sing! And I'm not sure anyone besides my husband actually wants to hear my horrible off key voice. Oh, and it was too cold too, I guess.

Me with the husband. We were freezing!

Cute pink elephant.

And it isn't Christmas without a pink cow too!

Back inside we got to look at more trees. This was the tree from Japan. I loved the origami garland!

And the tree from Africa was really cool too.

Me with the "tree of my people" as we were calling it....also know as the tree from the Netherlands.

Close up of the wooden shoes!

Large nativity from Italy....so pretty!

I don't remember what country this was from, but it was pretty!

Australia tree for our Australian friend Karri!

And last but not least, the USA tree.

It had lots of old fashioned reindeer and snowmen...so cute. Oh, and a popcorn garland!

We hope your Christmas is bright and merry!
