Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas this year despite being just a little sleep deprived due to these two Christmas blessings.
It was a Smith Christmas so we didn't have to go far to enjoy all the festivities. While everyone else headed off to the 2:00 Christmas Eve service I stayed back with the babies and enjoyed a little peace and quiet. Eventually I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures.

Can you find the best gifts under the tree??
There they are. :)
Debbie had everything looking beautiful and festive. She and Cassie took care of all the plans, activities and meals so we could just sit back and enjoy. They always have creative games and thoughtful gifts planned for the whole weekend.
The kid's table
A little Coyt stocking stuffer.
After everyone returned form the service the kids decorated gingerbread houses.

There were plenty of arms to love on the boys.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner and then it was time for presents.

Roarbert was a huge hit!
Legos all the way from London's LegoLand.
Toy Story III galore,
and enough baseball gear to get ready for the big leagues.
We went home and spent the night at our house but Santa came to Big and Nannie's so we were back bright and early the next morning to see what he brought.
and a little acoustical jam.
Love this, tuning his guitar, where do they pick this stuff up??
Thankfully Santa was listening and brought the things on the top of Stacey's list: a pointer, rain boots and silly bands. :)
Luke....I am your father.
T-bird in his Thomas tunnel
Brylie modeling just a few of her fancy new clothes.
Wyatt modeling his new Batman Underoos :)
Brylie with her Bitty Baby in matching PJ's (I think my inner three year old was a little jealous).
But then I remembered I have the real thing. :)
We enjoyed the traditional Smith Christmas morning brunch of eggs Benedict and spent the rest of the day in our jammies just playing. It was a FANTASTIC Christmas celebrating God's greatest gift, his son Jesus, and the four precious sons he has blessed us with!!!!

Love all the fun gear - I totally want my own guitar, pitching machine, Darth Vador outfit, etc. Looks like loads of fun, along with tons of family to help out. Such a blessing your in-laws live in the same town!

OH my goodness...those 4 boys. They are eat em up cute. The tiny-ness of the babies and all the excitement in the big boys. Something about that Wyatt! :) Want to talk to you but I know you're swamped. Have prayed for you lots the last week. I hope it was ok. Love you!
