Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We had a nice couple of days off work with time to spend as a family. We host Thanksgiving at our house so we had lots of prep work to do the night before and lots of cooking to do on Thanksgiving day! A big shout out goes to my husband and Mom as they prepped all of the food for me Wednesday evening while I sat in real estate class until 10 pm...I definitely wouldn't have been as prepared or relaxed on Thursday without their help!
After the craziness of the holiday and black Friday shopping, we decided to kick off the Christmas season with a trip to our local festival of trees. This is an annual event with all proceeds going to charity that allows local businesses to sponsor and decorate different Christmas trees. Take a look at some of the trees that were a part of this year's festival!
This was a white tree that was decorated in the theme of snowmen!
This was my favorite tree at the festival. This picture in no way does it justice...the tree was all white decorated with gold and silver. So pretty!
This next tree was decorated with purple and crystal accents. I liked the tree topper that looks like it is exploding out of the top of the tree.
This tree was super fun...decorated with red and green polka dots and glitter. If you look closely, you can see that the tree topper is actually a glitter top hat.
Finally, this last tree was decorated in a very traditional way. Most of the tree was made up of poinsettias and the bottom of the tree was decked out with Christmas carolers.
I had to end with this picture of my daughter and Rudolph. Last year she was a little weary of the characters walking around at the festival, but this year was a completely different story. She pretty much stalked Rudolph and Frosty all over the building, and at one point she actually pulled Rudolph's tail! Too funny!
I hope you enjoyed the festival of trees! What holiday activities or events do you attend with your family? Let us know in the comments!
