The Festival of Trees begins tomorrow!
I have spent all year preparing for this event to raise money for
the children at Primary Children's Hospital.
100% of money raised goes to the children at the hospital.
This year there are 2 trees dedicated to our little angel, Kristen.
This is the first year that we have attempted a large tree.
It turned out beautiful!
Tonight the trees will be bid on and sold to the highest bidder.
We named this tree "Merry Little Christmas"
because that is the name of the little Alexander doll that is under the tree.
Every year Kamie also decorates a tree for Kristen.
Kamie decorated a little palm tree. She put all of Kristen's favorite things under the tree...
Better Cheddars, Santa Coke, paper, scissors, glue, beads and the
Hopefully I can get a better picture later.
Kamie also decorated a tree for my dad.
Here is the story that I put with the tree...
Our Little Angel
Kristen was a shining star in the lives of many.
She taught us how to live, love and laugh.
Because of her, the sun shines brighter,
the flowers are more beautiful
and the songs of the birds are heard more often.
Kristen fought leukemia with grace and dignity
for 8 of her 24 years.
We are forever grateful for the love and care
Kristen received at
Primary Children’s Hospital.
Kristen’s light continues to shine as we honor her and help
the children at the hospital year after year.
