Christmas 2013

Christmas 2013 came and went pretty fast this year.  Here are some of our favorite memories.  We are so thankful that Jesus came as a baby boy to save the world!

My sweet preschool & Kinder Wed night kiddos ~ our Happy Birthday Jesus party!

Crazy Christmas photos

Every once in awhile my kids are fairly cooperative and I can snap a perfect picture quickly and painlessly. Most often, though, these two prefer to create quite a challenge for their mama behind the lens.  They love to make one another giggle and the silliness compounds fast.  More than anything, they definitely remind me to relax more and to enjoy the moment.  I will want to remember these silly moments years from now.

So thankful that there is never a dull moment in the Smith household :)

Owen's Christmas performance

In mid December Owen's class performed in his preschool Christmas program.  

It took a little while for him to warm up but he finally jumped in!  His class sang and danced to 'O Come Let us Adore Him'.  All of the classes joined together at the very end to close the program with 'We Wish you a Merry Christmas'. 

I'm fairly certain that bowing is one of Owen's favorite parts of performing.  He had practiced that part all week: while saying "1,2,3, bow".

Following the stellar performance was his class party.  Big sister wouldn't have missed it for the world :)

I created these reindeer juice boxes very last minute!  I think the kiddos really liked them :)
