Christmas at Nana & Papa’s {pictures}


A very {Deitte} christmas

We spent our first Christmas celebration with my dad’s side of the family, for the annual Deitte Christmas. So fun seeing all the kids every year! I love all my cousins so much and love spending time with them!

“Cousins are your very first friends…. They are like childhood friends. Nobody will understand the craziness of your family better than your cousins.”

This quote couldn’t be more true about us crazy Deittes! We were all missing Grandma this year but I was so glad we could all be together.


Snowball eating

Some cute pictures of the kids eating snowballs in front of the tree. Dripping on my clean, freshly washed floors. Because you know, they are boys. And I love them. And all of their dirty snow drips.


What we have been up to {pictures}

We have been staying busy lately, trying to finish everything on our Christmas to-do lists. I absolutely love this time of the year, even the hustle and bustle of last minute shopping. Here are some pictures from the last couple weeks in the Holzmann house.


Jack and Remy made Rice Krispie treat houses and ice cream cone trees. Let me tell you! We will never make a gingerbread house again. They loved making these just as much and they are SO MUCH easier. We will stick to gingerbread cookies if we need our fix.


Remember my friend Theresa who we played “the storks” for? She finally had her baby girl, fashionably late! Say hello to Lila Lucille…the sweetest little pumpkin you will ever meet.

Note the ratio of ornaments on the top of the tree to the bottom. Darn toddlers!
