FC: Smith Sister's | Goodies Weekend
2: We started out our day by making a trip to visit Mom & Dad first.
3: Then we had a group photo taken and Jeanne printed our pictures to put in our special frames. | Let the Fun Begin!!!
4: We all kind of had our own stations. Here is Jeanan at hers. (She only made one thing.)
5: And here's Jennifer at hers. Baby in the corner.
6: And we found out from reading Julea’s oven display that Jeanne's Kansas City Time is different than ours. What time is it? It's almost 4 o'clock!
7: The guys stuck around, so we put them to work making Turtles. | Dan, the Caramel Man David, the Pecan King Danny, the Chocolate Master
8: And Nick came over to visit his “Hot Aunts”
9: All in all, we had a great day making traditional Smith Christmas Goodies and some new ones. (How many batches of Oreo Balls are on that table Julea?)
11: We started our day again on Saturday with our typical stair-step picture. Guys took the picture, but we had to make sure they took a good one.
12: Then we opened gifts. Look what we gave each other. | Hope we didn't all think of the same thing. | Jeanan gave an apron with the phrase, “Its almost 4 o'clock”
13: And Jeanne gave an apron with our name and Mom's Carmel Sauce & Banana recipe on the pocket
14: And Julea gave an apron about the “Hot Smith Sisters”
15: Well Jennifer had her own idea. You can't have a slumber party without matching PJ’s
16: Figuring out our new timers. | APRON NUMBER ONE | You would have thought we posed for this one.
17: APRON NUMBER TWO | Silly Sisters...Can you say “Sugar Rush?”
18: The Guys were confined to the basement where they played cards | and started the ingredients for Dan’s Turtles.
19: Jessica & daughter Jayden came to visit. | WHO LET THE GUYS UP HERE?!!
20: Jennifer in her corner. | Oreo balls galore.
21: Can you pick out your favorites?
22: Work is done for the night. Time for a break and some Rock Band. | We worked so hard. Time for bed.
23: The Guys made us breakfast. We made them put on our aprons first. Then they could play cards.
24: Someone had an idea of what to do with Mom’s old record albums
25: APRON NUMBER THREE | Are they bowls or hats?
26: So which picture is your favorite?
28: No, this one is not right here, Let's go to the fireplace. | Need to turn the wreath out. Take another one. | No, Get back where you were to take the picture. | Jeanan’s eyes are closed. Try again. | There! That's Perfect.
29: Time to get started. | Jeanan at her station. Will she make more than one thing this year? | OK, Granny, What's wrong. | Jennifer in her corner.
30: Pose for the camera, girls. | Did someone say pose?
32: Vanessa’s dog Sophie was our crumb catcher
33: Hey!, Jeanan made more than one thing this year. Cookies AND cake-pops! | Aren’t they cute! (The cake pops, not the girls.) | Let’s bag them up. (The cake pops, not the girls.)
34: Time for the guys to make the Turtles | Mmm, Turtles and Beer? Must be a guy thing.
35: Making Oreo balls you got to get your hands into it. Jeanne brought gloves to protect her nails. | Let’s spy on the guys | They caught us so they took another picture.
36: Check out Jeanne’s sexy apron. | Vanessa put on the apron to serve the guys a sample of goodies. | If you cook, you got to be willing to do dishes.
37: See all the goodies we made! | We made “We Care” packages for our Aunts and our brothers.
38: Wow!, That's a lot of stuff!!!
39: We should take a picture with our goodies | TA DA, look at all the Christmas goodies we made | Take a close up picture. | Now take a picture from down low. | No, take one from up high. | A little higher, but don't fall.
40: There, that's it.
42: This time we started Friday night, but first on the agenda is the taking of the annual picture. | Since the guys help some, they can have their picture taken too.
43: Isn't Julea’s Christmas tree and Jeanan’s presents pretty? | Jennifer gave gifts that we can use this weekend.
44: And poor Sophie, she wasn't any trouble at all, even when she got stuck in between the doors.
45: The number of our wares has continued to grow.
46: OK, We ALL helped this year. Everyone gets their picture taken. | And I want one of these and some of those...
