Christmas Day with the Smith’s….

We got to Lyndi’s house early to spend some time with GG who was in town for a few days! 

Mom and Dad hadn’t gotten home from church yet so we passed the time playing Rook (of course)!  After a while, the kids were getting very anxious to open presents so we decided to distract them by putting them all in the bathtub to let them play!  We put them in Lyndi’s big jetted tub and they had a BLAST.  Needless to say, water was everywhere but they had a great time and it was a great distraction!

Once Mom and Dad got home, we had a big breakfast—sausage, bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, biscuits, and gravy!  That is a family tradition that we do together every year on Christmas Day and I love it!
After breakfast, the kids were READY for more presents.  We had hoped to have the kids open their gifts one at a time so that we could see what they got but that lasted for about 14 seconds!  Little ones are NOT very patient!!  As a result, I didn’t get as many pictures as I had hoped….

Addi got a teddy bear, princess sippy cup, plate, and placemat, and a doll accessory set that had a pack-n-play, high chair, stroller, and potty seat from the Mastin’s, an electronic book/learning game from Brad and Kristy, and some fairy figurines, a chalk board, and savings bonds from Grandma and Grandpa.
Austin got a UK sweatshirt and UK key chain from the Mastin’s and a Yamaha keyboard and savings bonds from Grandma and Grandpa.  He was so excited about the keyboard and has been playing quite a bit.  We are excited that he is eager to get back into piano lessons.  We hope to get those started back up soon!
He played a few tunes for us on the new keyboard and then we had to get ready to head over to the Vahle’s for Christmas dinner.
By this time, Addi was EXHAUSTED from not having a nap and almost as soon as we got in the car, she was asleep.  When we got to the Vahle’s and got her out of the car seat, she stayed asleep and slept the majority of the time we were there.  Poor baby—Christmas wore her out!!
