Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a whirlwind of a day here at the Smith house. The day has been full of squeals of delight from two little girls who declared it was “the best Christmas ever.” I wish I could remember all of the funny things they said, but I can’t so I’ll just say that we spent most of the morning laughing hysterically.
Blair’s mom made an egg/cheese/sausage/hash brown casserole, Ralph picked up some huge cinnamon rolls for breakfast and we supplemented all the sugar and fat with some fresh fruit. Blair’s parents, Mary Kay and Everett, stayed most of the morning and enjoyed the entertainment, then bowed out to take a nap before their next round of family events.
There we so many gifts under the tree that we didn’t get all of them open until way after noon. Of course, we had to take multiple breaks for the girls to play with all their new toys so that slowed up the festivities. After some mid-afternoon showers, we had a late lunch/early dinner of ham loaf, cheesy potatoes, fresh green beans and crescent rolls. Tonight’s festivities include giving the girls baths, putting them to bed then watching Monty Python movies and drinking some wine.
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you had a blessed day!
