With the new Great room, we decided to start a new ranch holiday tradition. Instead of going out and picking a single tree for the Lodge, we brought in a live spruce tree for each family. The other night, everyone gathered in the Great Room after dinner to make decorations and decorate their own tree. It got a little bit competitive, and we’re struggling to pick a winner. The trees are all lined up in the hall that leads from the Dining room to the Great room. Our halls have truly been decked!
Today we have the Yule log hunt. Tomorrow we’ll take the sleigh to Homestead for some caroling and roasted chestnuts. Then it’s the big feast on Christmas day and some major sledding.
