This Christmas we got to celebrate with the Smiths in Dallas. Debbie and Aunt Cassie plot and plan all the activities down to the smallest details for our time together and it is always fun.
Once the extended family had gathered it was time for our first craft. This year for our matching jammies we made reindeer Tshirts...yep, everyone, even the adults had a homemade shirt.
Next up was one of my favorite Christmas traditions. It looks different every year but always revolves around guessing which item goes with each member of the family and why. This year we had a mini tree with ornaments and had to guess which ornament represented each family member.
The Cs were delightful, aren't you jealous, so we promptly put them back in the car and let them cry it out while we played. And I might have bit my husbands head off in front of everyone for not helping me in the heat of this moment, as if it was his fault that they were crying for no reason. Yep, Embarrassing. But hey it's not all gingerbread houses and gum drops around here, just sayin' ;
Then we got comfy in our jammies.
The twins were once again unable to turn their frowns upside down, which might have had something to do with the fact that napping in a house with 21 people isn't always successful, so after these pictures we put them down for the night and decided they'd just have to open their gifts on Christmas morning.
The big kids decorated Christmas Tree cones.

The twinadoes went out too, but they quickly decided to come back inside too. Brrrr.
A VERY Merry Christmas
