Christmas in September?

No, we’re not decorating the place for the Christmas vacation time right now. We’re actually enjoying some fabulous fall weather, our first of four adult-only weeks, and looking forward to the fall cattle gather weeks coming soon.

But our thoughts are starting to turn towards Christmas and New Years vacation experience. It’s this time of year that we start lining up the details of the holidays, including the trees in the picture. Charlie ordered the live trees this week so we’ll have one for each family to decorate in the Main Lodge. And the phone has been ringing off the hook with potential guests looking into planning their family Christmas vacation. It seems odd to be thinking about the ranch covered in snow when there is still so much grass out there, but ’tis the season!

If you’ve ever considered trying a Vista Verde winter ranch stay, we do still have space during the holidays. The snow is sparkly, the jingle bells ringing on the sleigh and Mom can actually relax for once with the cooking, cleaning and entertaining taken care of for her!

Choose Me!! Choose Me!! No … Choose my son

When I first saw the post on Christmas Eve, I was ready to enter… Then, I thought how much I would love to have my "baby boy" ;who is 42 years old) come to the ranch while we are there. It has always been on my bucket list to bring my family, even more so since I have been sick. He is sooo much fun. You will never meet anyone with more energy. He is most excited about riding bikes!!! He has been looking at hundreds of pictures over the years, and spending time with his wife of 20 years away from the demands of over 100 teenagers would be a dream come true. I would love to be able to be a part of such a great adventure for them. So, it would be like I won too.
