Planting Kaylie's Tree

Sorry it has been another 'gap' in my blogging!! Man we have been busy! But it is good so I am not complaining (well not much anyway). lol
I have wanted to get Kaylie's tree planted since her 1st birthday and she just turned 15 months, so we are only 3 months behind! This is a tradition we wanted to start for all of our Grandkids and since we only have one right now, Kaylie gets to be the 1st!!
We planted a Mimosa / Silk Tree for a few reasons. 1st it blooms around Kaylie's birthday in July so that is fun and 2nd because it is one of her Daddy's favorite trees. You can see it right out of the dinning room and kitchen windows so it will be enjoyable to watch it grow.
I plan on taking a photo of her with it every year to see how much they both have grown!
Speaking of growing, look how big she is getting!! Oh my she is growing up so FAST!
Justin, Kaylie, Grandpa and Papa all looking at the tree to see if it is 'turned' and 'placed' right.

Yep, she knows it is her tree and wants to pull on the leaves already. This will NOT be a tree to hang a swing in! But we do have plenty of Oak Trees for that. :)
I loved this one, Justin is so cute as a Daddy. He didn't want her to fall over and get dirty! ha ha ha Oh my gosh if he could just remember how DIRTY he used to get.
This is the photo I was going for, the one that will show how big the tree is and how big Kaylie is, this is the one I will want to scrap about planting her own tree.
How funny is this, Paul was moving the quad since I didn't want it in all the photos. I just love the way they are both bend over looking, I don't know, it just tickled me!
Speaking of tickled, Justin is laughing at me making faces and sounds to get Kaylie to look at the camera! While Kaylie is much more interested in the little branch I had just thrown down!
I will try and do better this week.
Plus I still owe you guys photos of all the cards we have been working on!

Sweet pictures! Love all the expressions that you got. We used to plant apple trees (at our old house of course! lol) when each child was born. We quit... maybe when the grands start coming we'll start a new tradition.

She's adorable and looks just like her Dad, especially in the eyes. What a great tradition and what a beautiful scenic area you live in. My oldest son was in Oregon last weekend for a conference and he was telling me how environmentally friendly people in Oregon are.
