Happy Earth Day!

On Saturday, for Earth Day, Lowe's was giving away free trees. 
Their goal was to hand out one million trees.
So of course we got our free tree and planted it in order to celebrate Earth Day!!

Look at how cute our tree is! We were surprised by the size, in a good way.
I was very excited to plant our tree!

Step 1: Fill your pot up with soil!!

Step 2: Place your tree in the pot and make sure it is surrounded by dirt.

Step 3: Water your plant! Make sure you don't flood it!

Step 4: Place your tree in the sun and watch it grow! Yay!

I was ecstatic about our tree.
I can't wait until Tim and I have our own home so we can plant it in the ground.

How did you celebrate Earth Day?

We probably shop at the same Lowes, lol. We also planted ours in a smaller clay pot, and are going to transplant it next year. My Daughter plans on dragging it in every year to be our Christmas tree, she doesn't realize how big it will get.
Great pictures btw!
