Family Time

 The past few days we have had all of the Smith family here. It has been busy and loud but lots of fun cousin time for Paige. Rachel took some family pictures so hopefully we will all get them one day but here are a few that Nate took.

13 grandkids
The four girl cousins. They are all pretty cute. Paige has loved all this time with her girls cousins.
 We celebrated Lylia's birthday a few days early since everyone was here. I told Lylia that I would make her whatever birthday cake she wanted and so I made a cookies and cream cake. It turned out really good!

Christmas Time

 Christmas was a quiet one in the Smith household compared to past years but it was still wonderful. It was a nice enough day that after lunch we went outside to ride bikes on Christmas Eve.
 She got higher and higher on the driveway the more times we rode down.
 It was our family, Dale/Margaret, and the Hanis clan for Christmas Eve this year. Since there wasn't very many kids this year they got to play in the hot tub before dinner.
 Signing of the sandwich board.
 The boys making the infamous sandwich.
 Since there wasn't very many helpers this year a little girl even got to help.
 Ready to parade the sandwich around the house.
 Paige was ready to eat. :)
 Waiting their turn to hand out a present. We got so many great things and we are so grateful for all that we received.
 Paige wasn't too sure about her daddy being Santa.
 But she makes a pretty cute Santa.
 Christmas morning- Princess overload! :)
 She loves her new baby doll carrier.
 She got 5 pairs of "glass" princess shoes that she loves! That was the one thing that she asked for Santa to give to her and he did a good job of spoiling her.
 Having her first tea party from her tea set from Grandma Peterson.
 Olaf snowman sucker.
 All her present! She is one spoiled girl or according to my mom "loved lots." She certainly is very loved and it was so fun to see her excitement and her reaction to opening things. It was a great Christmas! (Sorry for those that have OCD and the backwards blanket. :))

Cousin Fun at the Park

 Aaron and Rachel's kids came over a couple of weekends ago and Paige enjoyed all the cousin time. I haven't blogged about until now because of the busyness with the ward party but here are the cute pictures of the cute kiddos playing at the park.
 She was determined to not let us get a picture of her.
 But we succeeded. :)
 Look Mom no hands.
