This page was last updated: November 18, 2020
A family out for a sleigh ride and a group of children out for a sledding adventure head home. Two cottontail rabbits, out munching the few blades of grass that have worked their way through a blanket of snow, watch from behind some brush.
Santa's come for a visit and children wait patiently so they can tell him whats on their wish list. One little girl stays back with her parents, while her brother runs ahead to see what Santa has in his bag.
"Rosalia's Skating Party"
Snowflakes begin to fall and everyone wants to get their time in on the ice. Three young boys race through the crowd of people that have come to skate on Holly Hill Pond. Little Rosalia is hard to miss in her bright jacket and brand new white figure skates.
A young girl and her brother check the mailbox to make sure their letter made it to the North Pole in time for Christmas. Their ponies watch intently as a snowman family moves in and guests arrive. Snow flurries begin to fall just in time for Saint Nicholas
to make his long journey this Christmas Eve.
Frosty nights combined with warm daytime temperatures have caused the sap to run, quickly filling up buckets attached to maple trees. Three generations work together collecting and boiling the sweet liquid.
Christmas is just around the corner and many
people are out trying to find the perfect
tree. decorate an outdoor tree with apples
for any wild animals that might wander by.

One horse open sleighs carry families on their way to Christmas Eve festivities. Others gather in small groups to discuss the evening candlelight service. While the adult go about their business, they are oblivious to the commotion in the sky above them. Only the children hear a jingle and look up to see Santa and his team of reindeer starting their long journey.

Two horses wait patiently as a young boy walks to the barn carrying a warm bran mash. While they look forward to being put in their cozy stalls for the evening, the rest of the family get busy making a snowman. Only the little girl in the blue coat notices that Santa is
off to an early start.
Windows glow with candlelight and large snowflakes fall gently on the guests that mill about outside the Copper Candle Inn. One horse open sleighs brimming with packages pass by the three children bringing home their Christmas tree. If you look closely, you might notice that the couple in the larger sleigh look very much like Mr. and Mrs Clause!
Horses wait patiently as a young boy brings up a warm bran mash for their dinner. Nearby, children put the finishing touch on a snowman.
"On Our Way to Christmas"
As evening approaches and families head home, windows glow invitingly with candlelight. Christmas is just around the corner and every building
in this little village is decorated with bright red ribbons and greenery. Children gather to build snowmen and dream of Christmas morning.
Horse drawn sleighs carrying aunts, uncles and cousins arrive for Christmas Eve dinner. Candles glow warmly from each window and a tree is displayed in a large window, inviting the family inside for a holiday celebrationHome for Christmas.
While a family contemplates cutting down a tree in the field above, others choose from the fresh cut trees at Kringle's Tree Farm. Mr. and Mrs. Kringle greet a young girl as her parents and brother look for the perfect evergreen.
Skating on Fox Run Mill Pond
While three children warm up by a small fire, others take advantage of the full moon and freshly shoveled ice at Fox Run Mill Pond. A pair of foxes wait patiently for everyone to finish up so they can hunt for their evening meal.

ships home safely for the holidays.
As people finish up last minute shopping, the angel
on one store blows her horn in anticipation
of Christmas day.
A full moon and twinkling stars bring a sense of peace to this small town. While parents arrive with some of the youngest children, others take their place in the manger for the annual Christmas Pageant; something my own sons participated in when they were young. Getting a dozen children prepared was always a bit crazy (to say the least) but in the end, everything came together creating the most anticipated event of the year.
It is the week after Christmas and many
have received new skates.
