Since we were in South Dakota for Christmas this year we had Oliver open his gift from his aunt Anna, Grandpa and Grandma Riederer, and us before we left. He’s still figuring out how to ride the tractor, as he calls it but I think Oliver, Joseph, and Isaac will enjoy it for years to come.
David’s company also threw a family Christmas party before we left where there was food, bowling, pictures with Santa and crafts. Oliver decorated his first gingerbread house by eating a piece of candy for every piece that was put on the house.
I realized only after I returned home from our time in South Dakota that I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked. We spent two weeks there and definitely got our white Christmas. Derek, Laura, and Jordan were all able to come while we were there too so Oliver had plenty of playmates and Isaac got plenty of holding.

I got together with a couple high school friends while I was home. Mika is currently pregnant with her first baby due in March. Hannah had her first baby just a few weeks before Isaac was born. She named her son Isaac too! Isaac meet Isaac.
Pictures after Christmas Vigil Mass
Christmas morning the boys got gifts in their stockings. My mom made their stockings and I think they are super cute.
Then more presents were opened once Jordan arrived the next day.
These are the only pictures I have of Oliver and Isaac with their Aunt and Uncles.
