Planting a Tree

December 27, 2008

We bought an oak tree back in October when they were put on clearance at Lowes. Yes, I's December and we are just getting around to planting it. The weather had been nasty, we were sick and Thanksgiving happened then Christmas. You know how life goes. We decided this was a month that ended in "r". As long as we got it in the ground this month it should be ok. It was unusually warm and very windy for a December day so we took advantage of it.

You may be asking yourself, is Meara wearing Dorothy's ruby red slippers?! Yes, you would be right. She is being beautiful in her shoes while she helps daddy dig a muddy hole. ;-)

Meara decided she needed her own shovel. Later on she decided she needed daddy's big shovel.

The ground around here is full of rocks and very difficult to dig up.

She really enjoys doing "big people" things. Michael is very patient with her and lets her do as much of anything they are doing by herself.
