This year was a Holle year for Christmas, so the 11 of us set up camp at Grandma and Grandpa Holle’s in Tucson. We were fortunate to have mostly decent weather (contrary to popular belief, Tucson is NOT hot and sweaty in December…we were lucky to be outside without a jacket on any given day). We had an amazing time being all together: us from Colorado, the Stumpfs from Nebraska, and Paul & Colleen from Idaho. We cooked delicious meals, visited the Desert Museum and the Children’s Museum, stopped at In and Out (sadly, only once), and drank an entire keg. The kids wore matching Christmas Jammies (thanks, Aunt Laura!) and loved playing with toys from the Holle stash, new toys, each other, and especially Aunt Colleen.
We had a fabulous trip and made lots of fun memories. We even got to stay an extra day–thanks, Southwest Airlines, for canceling so many flights. Also, thanks to Southwest Airlines for losing our BOB and then returning it 5 days later at 11:30 pm…a trip to remember!
