I love going and seeing all the beautiful and uniquely decorated trees. I also love going because it is so neat to know that so many people spend so much time and give so much to help the Primary Children's Medical Center. All the proceeds are given to provide medical care for needy children at Primary Children's. I was reading online at the Festival of trees website and found these fun facts that I wanted to share. The Festival of Trees was inspired 37 yrs ago. The first year they had 60 trees and raised $47,ooo. Now they have over 700 trees, not to mention all the other things now like wreaths, centerpieces, gingerbread houses and much more. Last year they raised a total of $1,567,525.80. (WOW that is amazing!) I would love to get involved more next year, not the usual money spent for the ticket and the money spent at the sweet shop. So if any of you want to get together next year and donate and decorate a tree let me know.
Here are a few pictures that I took.
This was the upside down tree.
I took a picture of this tree for Addison. She sure loves her bears!
I think this might be my favorite part of the Festival of Trees. I just love looking at all the Gingerbread houses, I love all the detail. I am definitely excited to decorate a gingerbread house this year, although mine won't be nearly as extravagant as the houses below. I mean seriously they are incredible.
I had so much fun going to the Festival of Trees with my mom, my grandma, and my aunt. It is such a fun tradition that I always look forward to doing every year. I am glad that Addison can now be apart of this Christmas Tradition. Here is one worn out little girl, Isn't she so sweet?!

Addison took her first real steps on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the dentist office. Tim and I were at the dentist for a cleaning, and when I came back to the waiting area after having my teeth cleaned, Tim told me Addison took four steps. I didn't believe him at first, and then he told me to stand there to see if Addison would walk to me. Sure enough she took three little steps to me.
Addison is one funny gal. For the longest time Addison wouldn't ever stand up and walk with me. Honestly she wanted nothing to do with walking, anytime I would try to have her stand up and hold my hands she would just buckle down and then crawl away. Well since the beginning of November she has started to show more interest in walking, actually she prefers it. I guess I should say she now enjoys walking with a little assistance from me or Tim. Each day it seems she gets a little more confidence. On Friday, when Tim got home from work he was having her try and walk from couch to couch. After she did that a few times he had her stand a little further away to walk towards the couch to pick up her bear. Next thing we know, one step turns to two and two turns to four.
Here is a little video we took of Addison taking some little steps on Friday. We are so proud of her and enjoy seeing her work at this new milestone. She is still a little wobbly, but I'm sure she'll have it down in no time.

Well for dinner, I cheated. I went with my usual spread of Blimpie, chips, salad and cookies!
Here are the prizes, I am sad to say that at the end of the night I didn't walk away with a prize. I guess not having any Bunkos on my scorecard didn't help.
Thanks for the fun night and I look forward to seeing everyone next month!!
Well I decided that it would be a very long post if I wanted to write all the instructions on my blog, but I noticed that Emily had a link to the instructions on her blog. So instead of writing it all out again, just click Blog Design Instructions to go to to the blog sight. (thanks Emily!!)
I'm not a pro, but if you need any help or have any questions let me know, and I would be happy to help you. Or if you want me to email you the instructions I can do that too.

Sunday we woke up and went to church, hoping such an act would help insure a Broncos victory. I'm kidding of course, although when I was 12, I was convinced that if I left church early, the Broncos would surely lose!
As we were walking out, I decided to try this picture. I was uncertain how it would turn out, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised.
Overall, it was a great trip, and I look forward to next year! In parting, I will recite the Broncos moto:
I am a Bronocs fan.
I believe in Mile High magic and bleed orange and blue.
I celebrate the Orange Crush, The Drive, and the Mile High Salute.
I create the thunder, share the common dream, and will forever be a proud citizen of
Here a few more pictures:
