Smith Family Christmas in Pictures

Christmas Eve

Luke's Christmas outfit: What a big boy in his button-up shirt and vest!

Luke, Auntie Andee, me and Auntie Jenny dancing to "Proud Mary".

More dancing and clapping!

Daddy and Luke sharing a Christmas smooch.

After a wonderful afternoon and evening at my dad's, opening presents, eating Omaha steaks and playing with new toys, we headed down to my mom's house to spend the night. Here is Luke in his new Christmas jammies:

Christmas Day

Luke woke up at 6:30 on Christmas morning, ready to see what Santa brought. My poor little brother (he's 15) got a taste of his own medicine this morning as he used to be the one to wake everyone else up by banging pots and pans. Now it was Luke's turn to wake the sleepyhead up!

Luke loved opening the presents and throwing the wrapping paper into Papa's garbage bag.

New Little People town!

Papa and Luke playing with Elmo

If he wasn't in diapers, I bet Luke would have wet his pants he was laughing so hard at Uncle Evan.

Roger and I took Luke home for a mid-day nap and he (and I!) slept for almost 3 hours! With our second wind, we headed back down to my mom's for a yummy dinner, board games and pie.

We feel so blessed this year, looking back on all that was 2008. And we look forward to what God is going to do in 2009! We also look forward to our belated Christmas with Roger's side of the family in February!

Happy New Year everyone! Thank you for checking in on us.
