On Christmas Eve, I spent the morning making rice krispie houses for the kids to decorate. They all had a lot of fun and then once they were done we made some awards for each of their candy covered houses.
The night starts off with the signing of the board.
Then the boys get to work preparing the traditional 6 foot long sandwich.
The next generation of boys are starting to help out.
The girls get to sit back and relax and take the pictures.
Then the kids get to put on reindeer noses and antlers and hold up the sandwich for a picture.
Next part of this Smith tradition is to carry the sandwich around the house while singing a little song that has been around for years- the kids love it!
Then it is time to eat!
Then it is time for the presents- the kids get the presents from papa and take it to the owner. Thank you so much for the gifts Nona and Papa!
The last part of the night is an eggnog toast to a great Christmas.
Santa visited our house!
Christmas day- Paige loved watching all that went on. She ripped some of the paper and had fun with her new toys and things. She mostly just was very observant and loved watching all the happenings.
We had such a great Christmas and had fun being with all the family. Paige had so much fun with all her cousins. She always seemed to have someone following her around. She loved chasing after Jake's remote control car.
