These are just a few pictures of the Christmas Tree my mother designed for the Festival of Trees charity, held here in Salt Lake. The Festival raises money for Primary Children's Hospital, and helps children and families when medical expenses become catastrophic.
I have for the past 24 years been part of my mothers vision in that I help to decorate the tree. The Festival runs the week following Thanksgiving each year, and we decorate on Monday of that week. This year the theme was not specific, just Christmas in general. I enjoyed decorating this year in a way I have not for a while. Maybe that is because two years ago the stress of it all made decorating day ruff. Last year we didn't do a tree, so this year was a return to a tradition that felt like christmas and like the charity event that the festival is meant to be. Hope you like the pictures.
