One thing I remember from my visit many years ago was a tree that was half-mannequin, half-tree. The top half was a bride, and the branches of the tree created the full skirt of her dress. When I was eighteen, I adored drawing fashion designs, especially dresses, so that tree had delighted me. I even took a picture of it.
Of course, because it’d been so long since I visited, I took a virtual trip on the Bronner’s website to refresh my memory and to find a decoration that Beth could pick out.
You can take a virtual trip of Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland HERE.
During the next couple of days, they visited Frankenmuth, an old-time German town, and shopped at Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, the largest Christmas store in the world, open year-round. Beth walked in wide-eyed and in awe. From the floor to the ceiling…Christmas. Every sort of Christmas decoration you could imagine, and dozens of trees decorated for different themes. One tree had a mannequin as the upper-half, and the bottom half of the tree was designed to look like a full skirt. The sheer number of ornament display racks could make you dizzy.
Beth picked out a personalized “We’re Expecting” ornament that featured a snowman couple arm in arm. The snowwoman had a nice round belly. An arrow pointed at it and the word “Baby” was spelled out. At the bottom of the ornament, it said the month and year the baby was expected. She couldn’t wait to put it on their tree at home.
When disasters strike around every corner, is it possible to have a happily-ever-after?
Hoping for a peaceful Christmas, Donovan takes Beth to Michigan. Days into their trip, a winter storm named Nemesis moves in with the goal of burying the state. Snowdrifts surround their house, and the temperature drops below freezing.
Except, the storm isn’t the only nemesis they must face. Everyone’s lives are at stake—especially that of their unborn child. Will they survive, or will they become a frozen crime?
