We are back from our week-long Christmas Extravaganza! Here are some highlights:
First, we started our Christmas Eve Day with a workout and Druber's donuts. Santa was there! So Ollie had his first picture taken with the big guy.
Next, we went to Maryville, Mo where we spent a couple days with Tyler, Erin and Addilyn. Ollie and Addilyn seemed to acknowledge each other a bit better this time--it was so funny to watch them interact with each other!
Courtney bought (then made) them these beautiful rocking horses.
This was the "funny" part of our time with Tyler and Erin. While making Christmas dinner, the garbage disposal broke, which led to a clog in the pipes in their sink. Needless to say, we couldn't use their sink the rest of our time there. Luckily, they have two bathrooms--it made doing dishes interesting!!!Here are some present pictures:
From Missouri, we drove the 80 miles to the KCI airport, expecting to leave around 1:45. 8 hours and 3 cranky Smith's later, we finally departed. Apparently, Skybus has 7 planes, and 2 were down. That pushed us back quite a bit! The good side? We now know every nook and cranny of the Kansas City airport.
We had 3 days with Joel's family in Columbus, Ohio. We stayed with Joel's sister, Sara and husband Kris. We spent most of our time: playing Wii, eating, and playing cards. Below are a few fun pictures:
The boys playing tennis on the Wii.

Us playing cards...okay, just imagine Sara was a few steps earlier in the picture...I tend to take horribly-timed shots!!!
We had a super time and are glad to be safely home.
