Broke out Michigan winter clothes this morning - even gaiters. I found Henry's snow boots in the bag with the snow shoes and poles. A hike around town, while it was snowing this morning, was Christmassy to the maximum. In fact, I think they should change the name of this town to Christmastown or North Pole City, or Fraser Town. This is the biggest Christmas tree producing county in the state -- they are everywhere. We have a thriving nursery as well as choose-and-cut thing going already. C'mon people! We only have ONE Christmas store? That's just not right. Why do we need a Jefferson and a West Jefferson right next to one another anyway? You can't even tell when you're in one or the other. Check out my pictures in Photo Essay section of this site, and you'll see what I mean.
