That night, once the Smith family had cut their Christmas tree, it was time to turn on the Christmas music and decorate!
Jake and Ethan had fun remembering and rediscovering various family ornaments to hang on the branches. Todd and Christine were content to drink Christmas tea while watching their boys at work
And soon the annual decking was complete and their tree was a sight to behold
The Smith family’s trip to cut down a Christmas tree is one of their most treasured traditions. Christine made sure to document every moment with her camera
“Jake, where did you get that pretzel?”
“From Jan the wandering baker”
“What do you think boys, is this the perfect tree?”
Ethan wanted to cut down the tree…
…but like every year, after one try he was happy to let Dad do the hard work
And so another fun family memory was made
Photos from the Smith family trip to Disneyland this summer:
Christine had to entice her boys, Jake and Ethan, with the promise to ride Space Mountain three times in order to get them to take a picture with Minnie
and then she promised them ice cream for a photo with Ariel.
The boys were excited for a picture with Maleficent. They asked her to turn into a dragon, but she declined.
and everyone’s favorite street rat.
Of course they needed a picture with Stitch
The boys were most excited to have their photo taken with Peter Pan and Captain Hook,
meanwhile Christine was excited for her picture with Han Solo (don’t tell Todd)
