How we LOVED our family Christmas this year. It was a Big House on the Praire meets Wild Bill Hickok experience. It was more than we could have imagined. The home was perfect for us--our family of 19 could fellowship in the huge living room--big enough for all ! The massive dining table allowed everyone to be there at once--The kitchen, too. We ALL hung out together, which was our vision for the gathering. We loved that the owner trusted her guests enough to let us enjoy her lovely things--every surface perfectly designed and decorated with her own family pieces. Beautiful pillows, amazing sofas and chairs, comfy rugs---the huge fireplace, ready to be hung with our own stockings......and the bedrooms: no Bed, Bath, and Beyond here. Cowgirl linens dressed big manly beds--pure luxury. We could hardly drag ourselves from our coccoons every morning--(thanks to the blackout draperies)---even the children slept late on Christmas. We caught fish, climbed trees, hiked the canyons (real canyons), stood on the tops of mountains--(the meeting place on top of the highest one was amazing--the perfect place for a sunset bonfire), went four-wheeling, cooked, sang.We loved the little bedroom off of the family room --perfect for our matriarch (92) to nap and the little ones to play, all in earshot. The bunkroom---what an adventure for the cousins---log bunks all lined up like frontier soldiers---so fun!!The foreman was delightful--the owner, a phone call away for advice on outings. Even though it felt like we were out on the frontier, the town and a beautiful Christmas Eve Church service was a short ride away. We were too busy visiting to turn on the tele--but every room had one and the wi-fi was handy for the daddies checking in with work. It was the best of both worlds.We were well blessed by the Lord in this place--it is obvious that the owners are blessed as well. It is a beautiful spot.We wouldn't have changed a thing--we can't wait to go back in the spring!!!
