Hundreth Post

I didn't realize until I got on to blog tonight that this is my 100th post. Since I didn't know, and I am not really the creative type anyway, I will just do the post I was already going to do. Christmas Trees. On Tuesday night we were finally able to decorate our tree that has been up since last Wednesday. Logan loved it. He was so cute putting several ornaments on the same branch. He had a hard time with the ornaments with hooks so we gave him the ones with strings. I love seeing the branches that he did. He also put the angel on the tree. I must say I really love our tree. I always thought I would be the kind of person who likes a tree that has all different ornaments and doesn't really match. I always wanted a themed tree, but I love that our ornaments have to do with us.

On Wednesday we went to Festival of Trees for playdate. I always think its so interesting to see what kinds of trees people come up with. Layne liked the tree that had a shark on the bottom, Annie liked all the girly trees, Lincoln liked the trees with gingerbread men, and Logan liked the trees with snowmen. I think the kids really enjoyed it. I wish we would have been able to spend a little more time there but we got a late start. We liked looking at the trees and loved seeing some of the gingerbread houses. Our favorites were the UP house and the Cinderella Castle.

The awesome UP house. The balloons were Jelly Bellies. So cute!

The Cinderella Castle. It amazes me that someone would have the patience to make something like that.

Our tree is like that too. We have random ornaments but each ornament means something. We are going to festival of trees today. It looks like you guys had fun. I look forward to seeing you tonight.

The picture doesn't show how big the castle was. I think they said it was six feet tall or close and came apart in three sections for transport! The gingerbread houses are always my fave!!!!!
