Today was Decorating Day for Festival of Trees so the Carey family decorated our 15th consecutive tree in honor of Scott’s brother, Paul. He was an Air Force pilot killed in 1995 in Alabama, leaving a wife and three young children. [Read more…] about Festival of Trees 2014
Every year we take a picture of the cousins present at the Bountiful cemetery where Scott’s brother, Paul, is buried, as well as his Tibbitts grandparents.
Here is the 2014 version.

This year our theme is “Boys Like to Read”. We decorate a tree benefitting Primary Children’s Medical Center in honor of Scott’s brother, Capt. Paul Carey. Here are some pix of the wild and crazy decorators!
We did the tree in lime, chocolate, and turquoise and set in a man’s study. There is a cozy fireplace with classics on tops, chair with the quilt I made, a side table with an airplane lamp and Hardy Boys books, and Curious George books under the tree.
I wrote about finishing my Kindle book a few days ago, and now, my sister, Christine, has finished her own book. Sue and I gave her feedback and comments, so we’ve had a chance to see it, and it is awesome. If you’ve ever wanted to know the tricks of creating an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind Halloween costume, or costume for any time of year, check out her Kindle book. It’s only $2.99, so I can promise that you get tons of information for that price and you’ll learn her magic formula for creating such costumes. Check some of the costumes out on her Facebook page and website, The Costume Resource.
If you don’t have a Kindle, it doesn’t matter. There are Kindle apps available for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, everything. And they are free. So head on over and get it! And please leave a rating and review if you do.
This is the 12th year we have decorated a large tree in honor of Scott’s deceased brother, Paul, for the Festival of Trees which provides charity care for patients at Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Each year we have tried to pick a theme that had something to do with his interests, so this year we did a classical music tree and called it “Joy to the World”. We are in our customary spot on the east end of aisle C in space C-21, in honor of the planes he was flying when he died. We got it all decorated yesterday and it came out very nice. In addition to our family tree, the Fazulyanov’s did a small Fairy tree that’s very pink!
