A Ranch Christmas


Living on the ranch means a change in weather (among other obvious changes)
and around this time in Utah, we are gearing up for
 (and may have already shoveled) snow!
Here in New Mexico we are promised snow- at some point.  
It may not stick like it would in Utah,
 but we'll see the fluffy white stuff fall from the sky.  
It just hasn't happened yet, and I will assure you I AM PATIENTLY WAITING.
 It sure gets chilly though!
It's been a little-- different shall we say, getting into the Christmas spirit.  
We listen to Christmas music every moment we are awake, 
and today we hung wreathes and lit trees, and tomorrow we will head
 to Christmas Tree Corner  to pick out a few trees for the ranch house. 
 Caaaaaaannnnnn't wait. 

This new life we are living is a huge change in every way!  
But we are so happy, and have really embraced this new lifestyle.
I mean, today Mr. Nielson and I escaped on his dirt bike out on the
 range to check on the cattle, and make out.  It was lovely.
