Festival of the Trees

After getting back from VA, our good friends Kirsten and Aaron called us up and asked us to go to the Festival of the Trees with them. I had never heard of it, but it sounded like fun, so we said we would. After going to eat at delicious Five Guys (if you don't know what it is... ask us and we'll take you) we headed up to the SouthTown Expo Center and saw some amazing Gingerbread houses and Christmas Trees. There were so many trees there that were all decorated so nicely. People get to buy the trees and anything that comes with it, and the money gets donated to a children's hospital or something. It's a pretty cool thing that they do. The whole place was filled with Christmas stuff... including food. Here is a glimpse of what we saw:

Had my camera not died, I would have taken a lot more pictures. There were a lot of amazing trees. What a fun night we had!
