Here at the ranch we are busy decorating for Christmas. Many of you have probably noticed that there are 6 days blocked out at Christmas. For the first time in many, many years our children and grandchildren will be home for Christmas; as well as our niece and nephew and their families. To round out the family, my brother and sister-in-law will be joining in the fun as well. The children are tickled pink and so excited about meeting new cousins. The adults are looking forward to being able to spend time together and catch up with one another. Skip is hoping the weather holds so that we can get take Thorn and the carriage out for a Christmas drive with family. There will be the old-fashioned cutting of the Christmas tree and trimming with the kids. There will be lots of food on hand, and just maybe a special visit from Santa. In this season of joy, we wish all of you a safe, happy, fun-filled holiday and Go Packers! From the ranch —Merry Christmas! Hope to see you in the New Year.
