November Farm Photos, A Wedding…And The Tractor Gets A Name
Thank you to everyone who sent in a name for our “new” ol’ Ford Farm Tractor last week. We received over 125 entries through Facebook and the Blog – so we had a lot to choose from! One in particular though stood out right away. Chris Harden from Iowa suggested we name it “Willie’. It was the name my mom always called my dad, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. So from here forward – Willie is our tractor’s name! And Chris – 3 jars of Mary’s Hot Pepper Mustard and the Picante Salsa are on it’s way 🙂
Speaking of the past – when we tore down dad’s barn last year to build our new one – inside was my dad’s 1937 Chevy paneled truck. Well, while we have been working on the barn project – my brother has been working on restoring her to her original glory as well. Yesterday – as we celebrated his daughter’s wedding – he brought out the old Chevy for a photo op with our entire family. It was great to see her out again, and incredible to get a picture of all of us together. As our family has expanded – it’s a lot harder to get everyone in one place. But yesterday, we were able to crowd around the ol’ truck with my Mom and get a great family picture. With just brothers, sisters, spouses, grand and great children – it’s amazing to see how big the family has become! And P.S…Congrats to my niece Erin and Patrick!
So, with that said – we will get to November’s photos around the farm. You can really tell that Winter is coming!
