Happy Holidays from FSB Premier!
We love celebrating the holidays at work and of course at home with our friends and family. Here are some of our holiday traditions:
"Whether it is at our home or out on the town, Holly and I love spending time with great friends and our family throughout the holiday season."
"We always try to hike/camp somewhere new between Christmas & New Years." Below is a picture of Alex and his girlfriend Mindy at the frozen Waterfall at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois.
Steph and her wife Alyssa kick off the holidays with a whirlwind tour visiting their relatives and then head home to throw an "epic crab feast" for themselves! "It's our little holiday secret and the perfect way to wrap up the festivities."
Jen and her family have a ton of holiday traditions such as decorating cookies and gingerbread houses but her favorite is cutting down their Christmas tree. "My husband and I always had live trees growing up and love continuing the tradition with our kids!"
Nolan and his wife Heidi also have a tradition of cutting down their Christmas tree. Nolan also enjoys going pheasant hunting with Heidi's family.
Tiffany says this was the first year everyone was excited and willing to sit on Santa’s lap. They did a Disney Cruise instead of gifts and really enjoyed their time together!
"Getting together with our family is always a highlight of the holidays."
"Several years ago we decided to no longer buy each other gifts to open up on Christmas morning, but rather focus on experiences.
We now save our money all year long to travel somewhere warm over the holiday season!"
Alex's traditions include matching pajamas with his kids, matching Christmas outfits with his fiance Dara, decorating Christmas cooking and watching Christmas movies as a family.
Premier's newest member of the team, Ben and his wife Liz make homemade candy to give out to family and friends. They also enjoy Hallmark movies and building Legos when it is too cold to go outside.
Bob starts the season off celebrating with his wife's family including her 90 year-old grandma. They play bingo and give white elephant gifts. His side of the family including his brother who lives in Germany and his sister from Idaho are all flying in to celebrate Christmas together. "Nichole and I love making a big breakfast for the kids on Christmas morning and enjoying family time."
Abby's daughters Emme and Livia enjoy visiting their grandparents and going to the Decorah Holiday parade. Liv also keeps busy with her holiday play-in at UNI Suzuki school and goes to the Nutcracker with her Grandma. Emme loves to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus each year.
Jacob and his wife Sarah love sharing new Christmas experiences with their nephew Koji. He and his dog Foster always try to get one more round of frisbee in before the end of the year.
From all of us here at Premier, we hope you have a happy and safe holiday season!
