Tony and I started a tradition the minute we moved in to our house. For every baptism or communion we planted a special tree for each child. Our yard has become a faith filled story as each child now can point out their special trees. Today we let Emerson pick out a tree for her upcoming communion. It is a Japanese flowering cherry tree and for our baby boy Benedict's baptism a Red Maple. Both neighbors on each side of us love the fact that Tony enjoys landscaping so much! We have pine trees, birch trees, pear trees, maple and oak! It is starting to look like a nursery in our backyard! Most will stay, but if we ever move you can bet their will be a few holes where our "family trees" used to be!
