Howdy!

We hope this letter finds you well as you celebrate this joyous season of Christmas. 2012 has been a busy year for us, with the kiddos growing like crazy. Caroline is almost 3 and loves arts and crafts. She goes to preschool 2 days a week and loves it. Luke turned 1 in September and loves to chase his big sister; he learned to climb and open doors! They love seeing Nina, DadDo and Oma regularly. We celebrated Aunt Jenn and Uncle Josh’s wedding in October – Caroline was the flower girl and Luke was the ring bearer. It was fun to celebrate with family and friends.
Zach is still working for BNSF Railway and traveled quite a bit earlier in the year from Illinois to California. He enjoys racquetball, Aggie football (WHOOP!), Rangers baseball and projects in the garage. Cowtown Photo Booths is a fun side business – look for them at the next wedding or event!
Jess keeps busy staying home with the kiddos. Need a resume makeover? She started her own business as a resume writer – ResumeButterfly.com. In her spare time (ha) she updates her mom blog – getSNAZZY.com and scrapbooks.
Jess and Zach took a trip to the East Coast and visited Jess’ brother, Jeff in DC (9 states in 4 days!) We also took our first SEC football roadtrip to Ole Miss and celebrated Zach’s 30th birthday.
We are very blessed. We wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and a new year filled with blessings, silliness and smiles.
Love,
The Smiths
p.s. Wow it’s hard to get a picture of all of us smiling!
