The annual Smith Family Christmas commenced the weekend before Christmas this year with great glee. The kids waited anxiously for Uncle Andy to arrive as he went over the river and through the woods to get to our house from Charlotte. It was quite a feat for him this year, involving last-minute pet-sitting drama and very little sleep, but Uncle Andy never lets us down. He drove up our snowy lane and was greeted with seven smiling faces, and Smith Family Christmas could officially begin.
There was lots of unwrapping and assembling and noise. There were remote control cars whizzing across the family room and songs sung into a new microphone.
There was lots of eating and drinking and time with Grandparents.
There was sweet time with sister cousins & best pals.
There was lots of joy. It was a happy Christmas.
