A tree for the toddlers

As we've been planning for the new church here in High Springs, we have had fun picking out paint colors and brainstorming about how things should be.  I told Patrick that I wanted a tree on the wall in the toddler side of the nursery.  We looked at some of the vinyl wall art, but I couldn't find one that I wanted and they are quite pricey.  So, I decided to talk my creative husband into painting one.  After a little bit of encouraging, he agreed!

 He first sketched out the outline of the trunk and branches in pencil.
 After painting the tree he started adding the leaves.
 Then, decided we needed two colors of leaves...
 And Voila!  A fun tree that is exactly how I envisioned it!  Love it!  We're moving right along towards March 22nd!
