Kinleigh Joy Smith

Nana and Papa finally have a granddaughter! Kinleigh Joy Smith was born March 29th. She weighed 7 lbs. 6 oz. Tyler and I keep asking Mom to show us pictures of her. She is so adorable.
Aunt Tamara is recovering well. We can't wait to meet her in a few weeks.

Before Ryder got to meet his big sister, he had to say a little prayer.
He was now ready to hold Kinleigh. Ryder is going to be a great big brother.

Happy New Year!

Here are some more pictures of the snow storm we had after Christmas.

We went to the lakehouse for New Years. We tried to make a gingerbread house.

When is started to fall apart I was not happy at all. We finally gave up on the house.
For our New Years party we made hats and played a little poker.
Dinner was so much fun.

Here are all the boys.
I went to sleep but everyone else celebrated New Years.
The lake was frozen so we were able to walk on it.

The Florence boys helped us a lot.
Tyler loves his had made by Great Nana Jane. He insisted on wearing it to bed.

More Christmas

Santa came to our house for Christmas. Ty and I first opened our stockings.
Then we got to go downstairs and see that Santa ate some of the cookies and milk we left for him. He left a lot of toys, plus a train!

We loved opening presents together.

Daddy gave us the game 'Don't Break the Ice', we love it.
Santa left us a guitar!

Christmas with Smith Family

Nana and Papa came to spend Christmas with us. The Florence's were going to drive up the day after Christmas to visit for a week. They surprised us and drove up Christmas day. We were so thankful since we got a blizzard the next day. We decided to head into NYC besides the blizzard warnings. Here we are in Times Square.

The snow started coming down pretty fast but we continued to walk through the city. Reid, Carson and Ron got to ice skate at Rockerfeller Center.

We took the subway back to Penn station to go back home.

Here's Nana and Reid in the train. Also Laurie and Logan.

And Mommy and Carson on the train.

When we got off the train we steped into 2 feet of snow. The Florence's van got stuck at the end of our street. Tom and Ron had to work at getting them up the road. The picture below is of Papa wiping off the car at the train station and then Daddy coming in after getting the cars in the driveway.
This was our driveway when we woke up the next morning.

The boys had a great time playing in the snow.

Here are the girls cuddling after a long day.

We went to the lakehouse once the roads were clear and went skiing.

Here's Dad helping Ron put on his ski boots. They were tight.

This was my first time skiing. Aunt Laurie helped me a lot. I loved it.

The Florence family are all great skiers. They had a wonderful day.

I fell a few times.

I loved skiing with the Florence's. I hope we can do it again soon.
