Festival of Trees
For Show and Tell today, I'm showing our pictures of Festival of Trees. I hope that Mel doesn't mind that it's not an "object" but an observation.
Festival of Trees is a local tradition around our area. We hadn't taken Boo in the past few years because we weren't sure how he'd like it. As you can see, he loved it! He frosted cookies, played games, looked a beautiful trees. The highlight for him was listening to a children's choir perform and getting a chance to run the electric train set.
This time of year makes me wish I were a child again. There is so much holiday stress anymore, but taking him to Festival of Trees made me realize that we can all be like kids....just enjoy the magic in THEIR eyes!
Yesterday was St. Nicolas day. My mother used to fill our stockings with a bit of candy and new mittens and hats. When Boo woke yesterday, next to his shoes under the tree were new slippers and some chocolate and a coloring book. Now he's asking all the time how soon Santa will be here. His wonderment makes me smile!
