We celebrated our Smith Family Christmas today... or "Fake Christmas", as Avery calls it!! What an awesome day the Smith kids had! First off, we'll start by showing you our Santa pics from our visit on Thursday. Both kids did great! The sat on his lap (Avery's first year of doing that!!) and Oliver actually spoke to him!
*Note the crooked, very, very loose bottom tooth....

So while Avery had some razz-ma-tazz hands while waiting in line... this is how Oliver spent his time in line!
He eventually woke up and was in a decent mood! (Avery received some brown lip gloss that day and was liberally applying... so her mouth looks a little- big)
This is Avery explaining to Santa that we're going to be in Arizona.
Here's Oliver explaining to Santa that he wants a Panda Bear Pillow Pet.And then came Fake Christmas Morning!!!! Oliver is completely, totally, and whole-heartedly in love with Woody and Buzz Lightyear (there is a picture montage of his new relationship with them below)!!! He also received this cool Toy Story 3 game from Grandma and Grandpa Smith. Avery has spent most of her day playing with her new Nintendo DS from Grandma and Grandpa!!! Literally... hours and hours spent playing her new games- silly me... I put this on her Christmas list with some hesitation because I wasn't completely convinced she'd like it... HA!! It is definitely her favorite present!!!Some play time- Avery and her Fire Breathing Night Fury (loves it!!! cool toy!) and Oliver and Woody!Avery also got the as-seen-on-tv Fuzzoodles. Another hit! If anyone needs a gift idea for a 5 or 6 year old girl... try some Fuzzoodles!! They're like super furry, monster sized pipe cleaners that come with a bunch of faces, shoes, and accessories. You can make a bunch of silly creatures. Or if you're Avery, you make a visor.... (girl after my own heart) (**AND note the missing tooth!!! Avery pulled it out herself!!!! Major bravery progress- but it was actually flapping around when she would talk, so it was QUITE loose!!)
And spell your name with them!!Then you wear your visor all day while playing your many hours of your DS!And finally, the Oliver, Woody and Buzz montage. These new additions to Oliver's heart have now watched him eat, watched him sleep, been hugged on, dropped, and flown around the room with sister!He has spent a nice chunk of time examining how I wrote his name on the bottom of their shoes (just like in the movie, ya know?).

Woody sits on Oliver's lap and he talks to him and falls down a lot. Woody knows when his hat is off or on his head, and Oliver thinks that is pretty fun!Ooohhh, the love!!!!
