Christmas at Eatons’

December 23rd, 2010 by Jeff Way

You know Christmas is near when you put up a tree.  As many of you know, putting up a tree when you have young kids in the house is a big event, and picking out that tree can be even bigger.  Cutting down a Christmas tree has been a tradition for many of us here at the Ranch, and this marked the fourth year in a row that my family and I, along with some friends, headed out to find that perfect tree.  After a long hike along the bottom of South Red Canyon in the cold and the snow, we all managed to find Christmas trees for our families.  The excitement on the kids’ faces made the trek worthwhile.  They didn’t seem to mind the cold fingers and toes because they had helped bring home their own tree.  It is little traditions like these that make the holidays so special.

We hope this holiday season finds you safe, happy and surrounded by those you love.  We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! I just found your site and thought I’d comment. I really love the video: it brings back so many memories. I was a maid in the summer of’82 (19-82 that is haha, I didn’t know that was 100 years after the first paying guest but now I know). Mary was just a toddler then and Lonny is also a familiar name.

    Happy trails!
