Last year after the reunion a bunch of us went tree gettin'. We had so much fun, I think it might become tradition. This year we were in Soda for thanksgiving and so the "tree gettin'" party came to Wayan. We just drove up Gravel Creek and got trees for 4 families - Ed, Craig, Blake & us. They were so easy to get to this year without much snow. The snow on the ground had just fallen the night before. We had fun, but still wondering how much these trees are worth. Blake hit a rock on the way out to Wayan and I hear a new oil pan, catalytic converter, and muffler are on order. We are hoping Sharee doesn't go to jail for stealing - she headed down the road for a tree and found one already cut just waiting for her to load it. No idea if someone was coming back for it or not. Next year I am hiding the chainsaw until I approve our pick - Jim's tree is a little narrow, but we can make it beautiful. All in all it was a fun day. I need my brothers to come visit more often.
I don't know if Katie or Seth took this pix, but I thought it was pretty.
Group pix - sure did miss our missionaries Logan & Jake this year.

Check out our new baby on the left. He is already spoiled getting to sit on Dad's lap - we are all excited to bring him home. All of us that is except Pepper - oooh is she going to be mad at us! He will move in before Christmas, but we have yet to come up with the right name for a red border collie. Will let you know when the decision is made ~ isn't he just the cutest thing alive?
