For Thanksgiving and Christmas, we always go to both of our grandparents houses. Family is very important to us both and we both have big families who have fun and laugh together. There is nothing better than having everyone under the same roof! The holidays can get a little crazy trying to make it to everyones gatherings, but we love the time we spend together in the car and make the most of it. We always stop to look at Christmas lights down by the river where we live each year and love to drive around neighborhoods to look at all of the lights while jamming to Christmas music. Brett has started a birthday tradition by buying me a dozen white roses with a hand written card each year. I never asked for this, but it is something that look forward to since he has initiated such a sweet gesture. He is the most thoughtful husband! Another tradition we have is going to the State Boys Basketball Tournament every year. We started this tradition separately with our own families growing up, and now go all together as one big group. We have a blast (and might get a little loud)!
