12 Days of Home for the Holidays: Day 12 with Diane Schultz
Welcome Diane Schultz!
Magic of the Holidays
I grew up in an amazing family, my parents loved the holidays and festive traditional celebrations were a big part of my childhood. Many of those traditions have been passed down to my children and grandchildren. As I leave to travel to my oldest son and his family’s home for Thanksgiving I am reminded of wonderful holidays spent as a child at the ‘family’ home in Teton Valley. We joined many aunts and uncles and favorite cousins around the dinner table to feast on all the traditional favorites. Afterwards we kids would officially kick off the Christmas season by performing for our parents (a very poorly acted but enthusiastic) play—usually the story of the Nativity. The special occasion allowed our staying up past bedtime to play games and sing endless Christmas carols.
I feel that same holiday magic as my four adorable grandchildren entertain us with their plays and magic shows. So many precious Christmas memories spent with my six incredible children throughout the years come tumbling back! I am so grateful for this extraordinary time of year—for opportunities to spend time with family and friends and for countless expressions of love, caring and appreciation.

Wonderful memories and traditions. My children did a Nativity play one year. I took a video of it...we'll have to pull it out and watch this Christmas Eve! Thanks for jogging my memory. I love the photo with the Christmas full of tinsel. My mother had me and my brother putting tinsel on the tree every year...one strand at a time. LOL
FYI: guess what I was doing while out Christmas shopping...buying Graphic 45 Christmas paper! Who can resist?!
