It’s hard to believe we are already into December and Christmas is just a few weeks away! I love this time of year -- the anticipation of spending time with friends and family, the white snow dusting the South Dakota prairie, and a warm home filled with twinkly lights to remind me of the reason for the season.
To celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, we are kicking off another photo contest. We are seeking photos that commemorate what makes this season special. I love checking the mail during December because I know that I will find Christmas cards from friends and family to hang on my fridge.
And that theme—Christmas scenes on the ranch—is what our December photo contest is all about.
Send me your Christmas card photos, either from this year or years past. If you don’t send Christmas cards, then send photos of your ranch family during Christmas or of Christmas in the country scenes. Have fun with it! The sky is the limit for what you can send.
