I first went to the Festival of the Trees when I was attending BYU and I loved it. I tried to make the event a family tradition but was met with all manner of rebellion...UNTIL serendipitously Todd decided he could endure pain of boredom for promise of a cinnamon roll and/or sugar-cinnamon scone at the same time that Brent learned to look the other way on financial crisis (to him) issues of high admission and concession prices. It was a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE and we've been every year since.
This year I got an email from a friend whose mother is involved in the volunteer effort. She asked for craft donations and Kenna anted up. She helped me make 9 journal jars and 12 felt candy holders shaped like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (a specific request from the Festival, not Alec). It was lots of fun and I'm so happy to support an event we love so much! Here's Kenna with our wares:
