Festival of Trees....

Jody and I went to the Festival of Tree's last night for our first time ever! They had so much going on there, with dancing, gift shops, gingerbread houses, christmas snack's, decorated trees and wreaths! It was so much fun but made me realize, that my decorating skills for my tree, need some serious work! They had about 250 amazingly decorated tree's for sale that range from anywhere between $600.00-$2000.00! It's crazy! Each year, people come in to buy them, and all the money goes to charity! It was amazing how many were sold! Anyways...we had a good time, and if any of you ever get the chance to go, it really is cool!
This Gingerbread House, was amazing!
This was Jody's favorite tree! It was decorated in CAT Equipment! Even though he LOVES his job now, he misses construction and playing in the dirt!!!

Jody's Latest Catch...

Here is a picture of Jody and his latest Tiger Trout! He was so excited that he caught this! Lately, he has been loving to go out fishing!! When he's not traveling with work, or out working on his toys, he wants to go out and fish! This is one of the biggest trout he's caught yet! His great adventures keep our life exciting! Luckily, I've found some great Trout Recipes, to let my husband know how proud I am of his great catch, because I think we will be eating it for a while! :)
