Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees.

So, here are two lists: one for your man to "do" and the other for you and the kids to make. I think you'll find something that's a perfect fit!
