When we lived in Alabama, a number of years ago, a dear friend gave me a little Norfolk Pine Tree, in a little pot. The tree was about 6-8 inches tall, I think. Here it is now:
It lived in NC for a couple of years, and then in Massachusetts for a very chilly year, and then back in NC. See how big he has grown! Thanks, Michelle :) He gets decorated for Christmas each year and is happy to participate in the celebration.
Julia sits next to it, to give you a sense of perspective on his tall he is.
Speaking of Julia, here is a picture of her teeth now. You may recall that she had to have two teeth pulled, have surgery to remove a thick frenum between her front teeth, and then have her bite corrected. Tada!!! Now look at those straight teeth. The orthodontist is almost finished with her.
