Yesterday, while picking up a few last minute surprises, we noticed that one of our favourite little churches was holding their annual Christmas tree festival. We went inside and the smell of fresh pine filling those cool stone walls was divine!
A number of local organisations and schools had all designed and decorated their own trees, it was homespun and very sweet. The Ladies Guild was running a mini cafe with all profits going to the church. It was filled with delicious two to three tiered layered cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls, hot coffee and tea. The tables were decorated for Christmas as well with evergreen, holly and candles. It was simply a festival of happiness!
The second best part of our day was stopping by another favourite haunt on our way home. BBQ for dinner on a frosty night, when the beer is cold and the BBQ hot, nothing could be better!
