Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Check, recheck and triple check the dates and times to make sure they are still correct when the egg hunt gets closer.  As I always say, this information comes from word of mouth, press releases and flyers I see around town.  The information is not always correct and I am human and make mistakes sometimes (although I try not to do it very often!).  Follow the link and be sure to contact the number available to confirm the time.
  • Bring a basket or bag of your own.
  • Arrive early.  A friend of mine went to a hunt two years ago at the John R. Jones park.  The egg hunt was over in less than 3 minutes.  There were hundreds (probably thousands) of eggs picked up and her two children got a whopping 3 eggs between the two of them.  They were young and were just thrilled with the excitement of it all so luckily they weren’t disappointed.  However, if they had arrived 30 seconds later we would have missed the whole thing.
  • Just in case your little one doesn’t get too many eggs:  Hide a couple of prefilled eggs in your car before you go.  Now that my son is a year older, I foresee some serious disappointment if he only gets one egg.  I would throw a couple in the car and have them hunt for them when we were all finished.  Of course, in my car every day is an egg hunt except you never know what you might find!  HA!

Do you know of any other egg hunts that the community is invited to?  If so, message our Facebook page if you have any other events you would like us to add.  Any names or numbers not in an official capacity will be deleted for safety reasons.

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Check, recheck and triple check the dates and times to make sure they are still correct when the egg hunt gets closer.  As I always say, this information comes from word of mouth, press releases and flyers I see around town.  The information is not always correct and I am human and make mistakes sometimes (although I try not to do it very often!).  Follow the link and be sure to contact the number available to confirm the time.
  • Bring a basket or bag of your own.
  • Arrive early.  A friend of mine went to a hunt two years ago at the John R. Jones park.  The egg hunt was over in less than 3 minutes.  There were hundreds (probably thousands) of eggs picked up and her two children got a whopping 3 eggs between the two of them.  They were young and were just thrilled with the excitement of it all so luckily they weren’t disappointed.  However, if they had arrived 30 seconds later we would have missed the whole thing.
  • Just in case your little one doesn’t get too many eggs:  Hide a couple of prefilled eggs in your car before you go.  Now that my son is a year older, I foresee some serious disappointment if he only gets one egg.  I would throw a couple in the car and have them hunt for them when we were all finished.  Of course, in my car every day is an egg hunt except you never know what you might find!  HA!

Do you know of any other egg hunts that the community is invited to?  If so, leave a comment in this post with the information.  Any names or numbers not in an official capacity will be deleted for safety reasons.

Tree Farms in and around Pensacola – 2011

We are giving away tickets to the December 3 Winterfest Performance Tour. See details and how to enter.

The turkey is all put away and I am all ready to decorate our house this weekend.  We are hoping to put up the Christmas tree tomorrow and get it decorated.  I love watching the kids decorate the tree.  They go through each ornament and ask to hear stories about how we got them.  They like to claim the ornaments we have bought for each of them throughout the years.  We travel a lot and we always pick up an ornament in each city to remember our travels.  The kids play “remember when” with each ornament they take out of the box.

For the past few years, we have been putting up a fake tree.  I fought it for as long as I could but my husband finally talked me into it.  I am not going to lie…I love the convenience but I miss the excitement of picking out the perfect tree.  To compromise, we make a trip to a tree farm each year to visit, wander around the trees, and more.  Here are a few Christmas tree farms in the area.  If I missed one, please leave me a note or send me an email and I will update the list!

As always, confirm the hours of operations, price, etc because things might change.  Before you go, check the website because many tree farms only accept cash or check.

Fish River Trees (Summerdale, Alabama) – We visit Fish River Trees every year and it is one of our favorite holiday family outings.  It is not just a place to cut down your Christmas tree but you can visit Santa and his reindeer, get a cup of hot chocolate, and tour the farm.  New to the farm this year is a manger scene complete with live animals!  Open daily from 8am to 5pm until December 24th.  See the website for activity schedule.

The Christmas Forest (Pensacola, Florida) – Christmas trees range from 5 to 10 feet tall and they each cost $30 no matter what size.  They have potted Christmas trees for those of you that want to plant your tree after the holiday season is over.   They are open Monday through Friday from 1pm to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 5pm until December 20.

Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm (Milton, Florida) – Christmas tree prices run $2-3 a foot.  There are staff members to assist you if you need help.  They are open Monday through Sunday from 9am to 5pm until December 18th.
