::instead of a wishing tree, why not a blessing branch?
::make feathers out of a paper bag and tea stained paper
::punch a small hole into the paper feather
::string a piece of floss through the hole and glue in the feathers
::write a blessing for baby, then place it on the branch
:: display the blessing branch on the nursery wall; Robin feels this is so much easier to display than a tree would have been.
