I'm so excited!
At my school, we have this thing called Beta Club. (I'm in middle school so I'm not sure if it's the same in high school.) We meet every other day and we donate our time to help people on the weekend. Like, sometimes we'll serve food at the soup kitchen, or clean up parks around town, or read to the kids at Childrens Hospital, ect.
Well, guess what we get to do soon! We get to help run the Fantasy of Trees! We'll be working at the cookie decorating book. You probably don't know what FOT is, but it's a place to look at designer Christmas trees, eat, and just enjoy Christmas time really. It's awesome! (If you wanna check it out the website it )
I'm already a Christmas freak so this is awesome! We just found out about it today and it just added to the things to look forward to.
Does your town have anything like this?

Wow! What a fun thing to look forward to! Everything about that sounds great! You will have enough time to really study those trees, and enjoy them! And learn some great decorating tricks!

And working in the cookie decorating booth is about as Christmassy as it gets! That will be so much fun for kids (and adults too).

That is wonderful. I'm glad you got into it.

My area doesn't do anything of that nature but I have traveled to places where beautiful trees were decorated, I love to go and see them. Gives me lots of ideas.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I think it's gonna be awesome. Cookies + pretty Christmas trees = a really good night. Lol.

About your son, maybe it is possible. Anything is if you try. Maybe it depends on what grade he's in? At our school you can only be in it if you're in 8th grade. It's probably is different there though.

Your daughter's really lucky then, lol. Our school can't do that because we don't have the funds to- but we do get to take a day off at the end of the year and go to the mall with eachother, so that'll be fun.

Last year my older brother, his wife, and my little brother all went together. They got tons of ideas. My sister-in-law decorated their tree after one of them there and it turned out beautiful! It had ribbon, and teddy bears, and glitter, and it was just really pretty.

And yeah, you should come if you can! It'll be really fun.

Your charity work is admirable. I hope you have fun with Fantasy of Trees.
