A Family Tree....

March 25, 2010

I love the idea of a visual family tree!
I have searched and searched for the "right" one for our family, a representation of us!
While in the process.....The Farmer's mother....who is a wonderful artist also fell in love with the idea and began to think about actually painting a family tree on the wall of her new home.
Her idea was to actually write the name of each family member on a branch or limb, so that each time they visited her, they could find their name on the family tree.

How great for children....and adults.....to visually see that they belong to something so special as
a family, and that each and every part works together to make something great!
I can't wait to see what she comes up. Hopefully she will paint it herself, that would make it ever more special! These are all ideas that I love!


This quilt is really great! The leaves have the names of each family member.

I really liked this as well. Again, the leaves have the name of each family member as well as the year the family was established.
This tree is in our laundry room. It has been soooo fun to have! Each member of the family
added leaves, even The Farmer. There were so many leaves, it took a few days
to get them on the tree. We love it!
This is a family tree that I found at Deseret Book. It is one that you make yourself,
and personalize with your family names. There is plenty of room to add names
for future family additions......but not for awhile;)
If you have fun family tree ideas.....please share!

Yeah, Conor told me that the bonfire was by far the largest he'd ever seen! I'm glad your orchard didn't burn down!

I love that idea! I am looking around my house to see where I can paint a family tree on a wall! OR... why don't we have "Imagenes y Mas" create a Family Tree in vinyl that we can apply to the wall and then add our individual leaves! That would be really easy! Let's go talk to them!!!
