Barbie's Trip to Christmas Tree Farm and Holiday Party -A Short Story

Very early one snowy morning Barbie and Ken (and furry friend) hopped into the Jeep and headed north to Cousin Rube's farm to pick out their Christmas tree. While the weather was iffy, Ken was confident the Jeep could handle the trip. Everyone dressed warmly, and was looking forward to seeing Rube's farm.

It was a couple hour drive out to the country, and the scenery was beautiful as the sun began to come out. Everything was frosted and sparkled...

~Someone~ was very excited about the road trip😉 As for Barbie... She was ready for a cup of coffee!

Cousin Rube bought his property a few years ago and the first thing he did was plant evergreen trees. The saplings thrived and grew, and are finally large enough to be harvested, so he opened the gates of his nursery to the public. He's thrilled to see his vision of a sustainable homestead slowly coming to life:@) 

While Barbie has heard stories of the farm, she really didn't know what to expect... Other than, on the weekends there would be an all you can eat pancake breakfast for a nominal fee. Rube says, even Hippie farm boys have to pay the bills😉 
Barbie found the perfect tree!
Look closely folks...
I'm telling you ~he's everywhere~:@)

There was a great assortment of fresh wreaths, and some handcrafted gift items from local artisans. *Free gift wrapping too... Rube is very detail oriented and thinks of everything🎅 

After a few hours of cold fresh air, a yummy breakfast, and the tree's on top of the Jeep, it was a great visit! Ken waves goodbye as they head back to the city.

Cousin Rube wishes everyone a wonderful Christmastime😎

After they warmed up and the tree was decorated, Barbie and Ken decided to have a small holiday gathering. So they sent out invitations to some close friends for a Theme'd Cocktail Party... Barbie thought it might be fun if couples were encouraged to wear matching outfits. While in real life guys might grumble a bit at such an idea... The Kens seemed to be on-board and willingly dressed up:@) Some wore ~very~ formal wear, while others... Well, others were a bit more playful, while sticking to the dress code of course...

Ken straightens a few ornaments on the tree before the guests arrive. And Barbie's having a little sip in anticipation of a fun evening.

Appetizers were served as the guests arrived.
(Ken's best 'don't hate me because I'm beautiful' pose...)

Jazzy instrumental Christmas music played all evening, which encouraged a little holiday dancing by the glow of Christmas lights.

And of course there's one in every crowd...

Santa Ken with photo prop beard and mustache. He encouraged all the girls to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas... (Long Santa dress from wine bag DIY.)
Barbie wished for more time with good friends, 
and the peace of Christmas to last all year.
Oh and, to get off of those boney knees:@)

And we here at PIM wish ~you all~ 
a little silly fun this holiday season!
Have a happy day🎅
