TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was waiting outside
Cedar Crest when a horse-drawn wagon came up the drive with the
Christmas tree for the governor's official residence.

Sebelius accepted the 9-foot Scotch pine Friday from Bowen's Christmas Tree Farm in Pittsburg. She also received a 30-inch pine
wreath from Kasl Tree Farm in Belleville to hang outside. Members
of the Bowen family carried the tree inside Cedar Crest and set it
up in front of a window in the downstairs living room.

Karen Bowen, who owns the farm along with her husband, Jim, said they grow some 3,000 Austrian and Scotch pines on about 10 acres.
She said the tree is about 10 years old.
