The Festival of Trees
We had a wonderful afternoon. We went to the Fairmont Olympic Hotel to enjoy the Festival of Trees. Each year, the Forrest L. Flashman Guild for Children's Hospital coordinate this fundraising event, hosting 20 decorated Christmas trees to be sold, along with the lighting of the main hall tree, cookies, and Santa photos. Each tree sells for $2,500-$4,000. All the trees have a featured patient from Children's Hospital, and this year Mya was honored as one of them! What a wonderful time to share how thankful we are for the many blessings & miracles we received from her heart surgery experience. She had a great time, being a special guest at the event, she was given a ribbon necklace with a silver bell on it along with a sprinkled cookie- the mix for a perfect day! Grandpa & Grandma Tiegs helped enjoy the time together. We haven't forgotten Thanksgiving, but it was a wonderful kick-off to our Christmas Season! Please visit the website at:
Here is the write-up that is online and posted next to her tree, #6!

OMgoodness! Mya looks like a celebrity in that shiny green satin dress, & black patent leather shoes. Having been a redhead from birth to junior high? I know that green makes red hair POP.
