5 Day Review...

It has been a pretty busy 5 days here at the Holder Household...to grandma's house we went for Christmas #1, playing in the snow, ringing the bell and many other fun adventures. Here are some pictures to recap the past 5 days...enjoy!

Christmas is celebrated for a month at our house...not just a day. We have 3 sets of grandparents to celebrate with as well as our own family traditions. As exhausting as many people think it would be to celebrate 4 different times throughout the month, we actually enjoy it! The kids really look forward to great time spent with their grandparents and cousins. They each have cousins their own age no matter where we celebrate and they have a BLAST! Regardless of any presents, great family memories are made and a lot of fun is had by all!
Some of the pictures below are from Christmas Celebration #1.
Merry CHRISTmas!!

Looking for birds and deer...look at those little butts! :)

Back at home...playing in the snow...it was finally warm enough to actually play outside!

As a family (minus Seth) we rang the bell(s) for the Salvation Army. 2.5 hours is a long time to ring the bell when you're 3 and 6, but they did such a great job...the coffee shop gave them free hot chocolate and the grocery store manager gave them beautifully decorated cookies because they did so well. Lots of smiles, Merry Christmas's and singing...a great family memory about the importance of giving of your time to help others!
