Every year, without fail, the Smith family gets together for a big Christmas Party! This is the whole family that originated with Carrie's grandmother Margaret (Grandma Maggie) and grandfather Clifford. That includes their 6 children and their families, and this year there were a total of 41 people at the party.
Santa and Mrs. Claus visited and Santa read "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" to the kids. Isabelle and Seth liked the story very much. Here they are with Connor while listening to the story.
Santa then called each child up to sit on his lap, talk and receive a present. Isabelle's present was a singing Tori doll from the show Victorious.
Seth's present was the Batman Lego DS game.
Parker's present was a toy car. He wasn't about to sit on Santa's lap so he had help from Daddy.
Each family had their photo taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Here's the Chapman family.
All of the Smith grandkids played a family history trivia game. There were 17 questions and the person who won had 10 of them right. Carrie tied with 2 others (Jessi and Kim) with 10 correct, so it came down to "pick a number and whoever's closest wins". Kim won! We learned some neat facts about our relatives and had a lot of fun in the process.
It was a great afternoon of food, games and seeing all of our family!
