12/8/2015 The Richlands – Little Carter wanted the finest Christmas tree in all the land. If he could only find Santa, Santa would help him pick. He boarded the Christmas train which runs between the Richlands and Christmas forest.
The train delivered Carter and his family to Christmas forest station on the edge of a bustling Christmas town. His brothers and parents gasped in amazement at the start of the forest. They started inspecting trees.
But Carter knew, if they were to have the perfect tree, they would have to find where Santa would be.
No one would say if Santa was there.
He asked the pigs.
He asked the cows.
Even the reindeer
for crying out load.
So off to the Christmas house Carter went. He and his family hopped a ride on the back of a hay wagon.
Inside the house,
it was wonderfully fine.
But the man named Santa,
We did not find.
