Come Home for the Holidays Celebration
Despite the icy and freezing outdoors on Saturday morning, Weeping Water's annual Come Home for the Holidays Celebration took place. I had a wonderful time walking around town enjoying the pretty scenery the weather had made and all of the lovely decorations around town. I managed to take some pictures of some of the fun activities going on around town on Saturday.

Bloom Where You’re Planted ChristmasTreesSave gas and buy your fresh Christmas tree locally this year. Bloom Where You're Planted Farm has a fresh delivery of Nebraska-grown, pre-cut Scotch pines priced at $25.00 each. Trees range from 5.5-8 ft. and will be sold during "Christmas in the Country", the farm's holiday boutique event. Owners Terry and Teresa Lorensen say, "Our trees are grown in southeast Nebraska and are cut just a few days before our opening day. Trees sold by large retailers are cut weeks earlier and can’t compete with the freshness of our trees. And, since our trees aren’t trucked hundreds of miles to get here, it’s better for the environment!" Bloom Where You're Planted Farm will be open from Nov. 24-Dec. 9, Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. The farm is located at 911-108th St., rural Avoca. To get there from Weeping Water, take the spur south of town to Hwy. 34, then 3 miles east and 1/2 mi. north. Call 267-4104 or visit www.bloompumpkinpatch.com for more information.
