Smith Family Christmas, Part 2

Sherri got all of the men these scalp massagers.  They were a huge hit with everyone – I think Jeff’s feels pretty good, actually.  Here is Adam being silly with one. During the talent sharing portion of the afternoon, Clara brought in her soccer ball to show off some of her skills. She did a […]

Smith Family Christmas, Part 1

Yesterday we celebrated our extended family Christmas. As always, it was just a great, great day.

Last Sunday we celebrated Jeff’s birthday with lunch here after church.  All the kids and grands came, and Charlie brought his bike to show us his new number plate, which even includes his name now that he’s riding for a team.  Proud grandparents!
