Here are a few more pics of Christmas! This is a pic of all the girl cousins (except for Makella, she was taking a nap)!

And here is a pic of the super long train that all the kids made. The adults (led by Ben) made the Engine (and Lacy made the sled at the very front). The kids did a great job making them(and eating them (for breakfast))!

I spy a........ Fox!

On New Years Eve this beautiful animal appeared in our yard! Ben grabbed his camera and took a few pics! The fox really was beautiful, the picture doesn't quite capture it. In our 2 years living here I've heard that Fox live in the area but I have never seen one (not even on the side of the road)! So it really was strange that this one was wandering through our yard in the middle of town and in the middle of the day. It was a lot bigger than I thought a Red Fox would be too. It was about the size of a large, medium sized dog (if that makes any sense). It was pretty cool!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

So, I am finally posting about Christmas! My comp. is being incredibly slow today so I only put one pic on but I will probably post more latter! We had the whole Smith clan here for Christmas (all 26 of us) and here's the pic to prove it! It hasn't happened for a long time but somehow we all managed to gather in one spot at the same time! Our gathering spot was Ken and Julie's new house (which is right next door to ours). We had a good Christmas with everyone. While we were opening our presents all the sudden we realized it was Snowing! It didn't stop snowing all day either. It didn't really stick to the ground at our house but it was sure fun to have a "white" Christmas.
