Birth Tree Blooms
Christi and Shayne with the new "Christi Tree" planted in honor of her birth. (August 1997)
Check Out This Incredible Quilt!! Thank you, sweet Kim M.! We will be auctioning it off at the Tea Party on Saturday! It is gorgeous! (Kami and Jennifer reported that the chocolate teapot candies they made for party favors are darling! I bet they are!) THANK YOU!
When each daughter was born, we had a "birth tree" planted - never imagingng that the tree would outlive the girl!! For Christi, we selected a dogwood tree because we knew it would bloom in the month of May - her birthday. Christi's tree blooms beautifully and it's bittersweet to keep seeing it this year. Shayla's oak tree died aabout two years ago and she decided upon a lilac bush to be replanted instead of the oak tree which died. (We called Shayla acorn when she was in my tummy because she felt like a little tiny "acorn".)
At this time ten years ago:
