Tis the season I suppose. Got my tree today

My wife is working 3 jobs at the moment so we never do anything together and hardly ever as a family.
We planned a day to go get our tree at a tree farm about 25 miles away in Michigan.

Since the Ram is serving as a 68 Fairlane parts storage shed we took the F 100. And. The. Dog. :?

Anyway we had a really fun day and it was cool to have the dog and the truck as part of it. Felt rustic or something.
I didn't take many shots but I got a few with my wife's cam. And yes, Justin needs a haircut.

I love Michigan. I hope they fix it someday.





Got a lot of comments on the truck. It was kinda cool.







This is why I can't get anything done. Wouldn't trade it for anything though.

I here ya on that one. Michigan is still hard to beat with all its troubles.Been all over the country and no place like here.

Thats cool taking the F-100 out for a holiday jaunt. My 7 year old sure loves pony rides too!
We live out in the sticks. A local farmer was excercising his horses one day in front of the house with a home-built wagon. My Daughter had a fit. So we went for a 5-mile jaunt with him! Momma picked us up in our FORD SEDAN (Taurus).
It would be cool to have a 62-64 galaxie full of kids and sleds in the trunk going sleding!Can remember having days like that!!

Phil, you should have slid the dog over behind the wheel, and then panned the shot to make it look like the truck was moving.

It was always a family tradition growing up. Dad took us out to the pasture and we found a tree (cedar around here). we cut it down and took it home. Then we all helped Mom decorate the tree. I am making darn sure that the tradition continues with my kids. Emma was only 12 weeks old, but Mom and I got here in her camo and took here to the creek bottom for her first Christmas tree hunt. I took us bout 45 minutes to find the right one. We have never bought a tree and I think I would rather go without one than pay for one. I realize that a many people don't have this choice, and thats fine, but I wish every little kid could spend time with their Dad's hunting in the woods for the 'perfect' tree. Before we bought our land we had pretty slim pickens for trees and they were 'ugly' probably to others, but to us the hunt (time together) is more important than the tree itself.

um, the dingo is eating your baby. :lol:

What a great start. You guys are a great looking family and your lucky not to be stuck in some city. Someday I hope to get a couple acres and pole barn and ditch the city life. I do like the convenience of it but its hard for a car-guy with a kid growing up.

Merry Christmas to you guys

What cletus66 said, enjoy them kids cause it goes by like a rocket. Seems like we brought the oldest home a couple months ago and she's 26, unreal. When they were in school they ran us crazy with activities, I use to think I can't wait until this is over, now I am bored to death and really miss it. Again enjoy them and hug them everyday. I hope all of you have a Merry CHRISTmas.

Thanks
