Around the first of December each year, there is a local event called "The Festival of Trees." It is a fund raising event for Primary Children's Hospital. The entire event is run by wonderful volunteers.
Besides the hundreds of decorated trees which are donated each year, there is a craft area for children. A boutique area. Two stages with non-stop entertainment. Long lines for scones and cinnamon rolls. A fudge and candy section. Rows and rows of beautiful wreaths on doors. And my personal favorite thing to see ... the gingerbread houses.
They never cease to amaze me - and this year was no exception. I admire the creativity, talent, and patience that goes into creating them. I think I would have a hard time giving mine away.
These are just two of my favorites.
(How cute is this house from UP?)
(I decided to add another one ...)
