Christmas 1sts

1st Christmas as a married couple. We had a fabulous one!
1st Sewing Machine. No not the first sewing machine I have ever used but all the others were hand- me- downs. This is the 1st one bought for me. Thanks mom and dad. I love it! Did you notice it is the project runway limited edition!
1st Pillow House and 1st Project on my new Sewing Machine.
1st ET shirt I've ever purchased. Our neice, Liv, loves ET. This was one of her Christmas presents and she looks adorable in it.
1st Fried Turkey. 1st time to eat fried turkey and Jeff and Brother-in-Law Jay's 1st time to fry one. It was absolutely delicious!

Crochet with heart

I wanted to tell you about a very special project that my mom, some friends/coworkers and I did. I saw an article in crochet today for scarves for The 2009 Special Olympics. At work we have a knitting/crocheting group for some of the teenagers we work with and we are always looking for charity projects the girls can do with the skills they have learned. We did this project with them. I cannot show any photos of the girls because of confidentiality, but here are some of the adults and our beautiful scarves. I am glad that we were able to give the athletes a cherished memento. We will be mailing our scarves out in a couple of weeks.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular

I got to experience the famous Rockettes this weekend! It was an amazing show. My great aunt who went with us saw the Rockettes in 1951 and was so excited to get another opportunity to see the fabulous production again. The reindeer costumes were my favorite ...the antlers had lights on them.
The wooden soldiers were so cool. The parade of the wooden soldiers is one of the show's original acts from 1933. The ladies showed amazing skill and timing pulling off this number.

Ok so who can't get enough of Santa. I love him and we got bunches of him here.
I'm so proud of myself for getting this perfect kicking picture.
Such a great ending to the show. The live nativity scene was breathtaking. It is nice to see that the rockettes still remember what Christmas is all about.

Tis The Season

This is our beautiful Christmas Tree that has taken quite a beating this year! This is our Kittens, Ficher and Sunday's, first Christmas. Having said that they think that we put this tree up especially for them. I can't tell you how many times Sunday has been up in the tree but I can tell you that I have personally caught her at the VERY TOP three times. I'm surprised it is still standing!
Check out my beautiful manger scene! My friend Allison made this for me a very long time ago and yes Allison I use it every Christmas. This is among my most treasured Christmas Decorations.

The Smith Family would like to wish everyone a blessed, safe, fun Holiday Season!!!!!!!!!!!!!
