Christmas Time with Grandpa and Mema

Another great visit we had took place at Grandpa and Mema's house. There is so much to explore at their house between Justin's old toys in the basement and the big "toys" in the garage, the kids love being there!

Schlottach Christmas 

These boys have so much fun together! 

Grandpa gets the "famous" drink! 

Doesn't everyone do a piñata for Christmas? Instead of a cousin gift exchange, we decided to stuff little goodies (My Little Pony minis and Monster Trucks) into a piñata and let the kids have a fun little experience. It was a way bigger hit than any of us predicted and I think it is our new annual tradition!

How cute are these girls???

These are now hard pictures to look at as our dear Earl passed away on January 3rd. He was a multi-talented man that offered so many fun stories and delicious meals to our family events. He was a joy to be around and had a smile that made you melt. We were so heart broken to hear the news of his heart attack and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Joanie and the rest of Justin's family. It was hard to not be around you all to celebrate his life. We will cherish our memories of him, especially this Christmas as we explored his shed and watched the joy on his face as the kids played in his Jeep. To an incredible man that will be greatly missed - cheers!
