Festival of Trees...M2G, This Thread's For You!

We went to the Festival of Trees last Friday, and seen's how I am pretty much on bed rest, I thought I would get the pics shrunk down, and posted. Be warned, there are a lot of pics here. Kelly, I thought about you the entire time I was there, and thought about how much you'd enjoy seeing all of these trees.

The Festival of Trees is an event our local area has to benefit an assisted living facility that helps with mentally disabled community members. Local businesses and groups put these trees together, a lot of people pay to see these trees and there are so many other things there too. Seth got to do some Christmas crafts, see Santa and watch the nutcracker. At the end of the festival, the trees are auctioned off, and all of the proceeds go to this assisted living facility. It's actually a great deal! I am happy to go each year and give my little contribution.

Enjoy.
