festival of trees.

this last saturday, we ventured down to salt lake to visit a relative in the hospital, go to a birthday party, and attend the festival of trees! although it was crowded and we were in DIRE need of some dinner, it was still pretty dang fun! the best part are the gingerbread houses.
i mean, seriously.

and on that christmasy note, we bought our first christmas tree! it might be only 18 inches tall, but it also might be the cutest thing ever! you have to start somewhere, right?

i'm telling ya, there is nothing better than the glow of some christmas lights, a christmas scent, (cinnamon sticks, cranberries, and a sliced orange on the stove. nothing beats it.) kenny g blasting, and some baked goods being sent down my belly. man, i love the holidays!
