It's a Festival of Trees!

Eric and I attended the local Festival of Trees today, benefitting the local Hospice House. We haven't been in a number of years, and it has grown so much! We saw many beautiful trees and I took pictures of some of my favorites.

This is the Hospice volunteer tree, in honor of the many volunteers that have worked with them this year. I recognized a few names on this tree. I just loved the purple!

All the decorations on this tree were made out of old puzzle pieces! It was so cool! Here's a close-up of a couple of those ornaments:

The detail on the mouse and gingerbread man was outstanding. I liked the little nutcracker on the side, too.All Santa all the time!

With my love of angels, I had to get this angel tree.

I love the tree topper--a halo!!

This is a freedom tree, in honor of our troops in service to our country.

Yes, that's Barbie on the top! Freedom Barbie!

And it just wouldn't be a Washington, DC-area festival without our sports teams getting a nod! Here's the Washington Capitals' tree.

The mighty Redskins!

I just love Christmas. I'm glad it's on its way!
