Nick and I both love willow trees… so when the girls were born, we planted a baby willow tree for each of them. And last year we took pictures of the girls with their willow trees.. and decided to make a tradition of it!
We almost forgot this year, which is why we’re 3 weeks behind. A couple of our loyal readers actually reminded us! Crack me up. I love you guys.
Here’s their 1-year pics from last year: (we didn’t do a very good job of getting the whole tree in these pics… we were just lucky to get them to be still for 5 seconds, and considered it a win):
And here’s their pics this year!
(clearly, by the griege shade of the grass, we could use a little rain here in the midwest)
The trees haven’t grown much, but the girls have! I have a feeling the trees will end up winning in the long run. The sisters were pretty confused about why we plopped them next to a tree and told them to hang onto the trunk and SMILE!!!!!!! Not so much…
