festival of {trees}

this past saturday we decided to head up to south jordan to see the festival of trees. i've never been, and danny hasn't been since he was a little tyke, so we thought it would be a nice activity to ring in the christmas spirit.

my favorite part was looking at all of the AMAZING gingerbread houses. they were incredible. i couldn't stop thinking of all of the new ideas i wanted to use on my gingerbread house this year.

the tree's were fabulous as well. they had everything from a "fancy nancy" tree, to rock band, to a "twilight" {it always rains in forks...clever}, to an upside down tree, to a "goodnight moon" tree. we had a wonderful time...and even got to run into sammy yarbrough and dave + sarah.

p.s. max has been taking a killer morning nap, so i've posted about five different posts...make sure you check them out :)


  1. That looks like so much fun! I gotta get me up there!

  2. That looks awesome! Do you know how long it's going on for? And let's do something over christmas break, k? We'll have a lot more time, and we can plan a fun christmas activity!! I'd love to!

  3. You can make things like my header and the lined paper from picasa or picnik. just go to I just searched for lined paper and then added text. Let me know if you need anymore help!
