New Years

We have a New Years tradition of getting together with our dear friends Kim and Zach.  Unfortunately, this year we were not able to be together on New Years (but we are looking forward to meeting them in Spokane for a weekend soon)!  So, we spent New Years in Pullman.  It was really nice to have a long weekend together as a family.  We felt spoiled by some great time just the three of us (that time is limited with Baby Smart on the way soon).  New Years Eve, Josh and I were able to go out to eat with several young couples.  It was fun to have a dinner out without having to worry about entertaining a 2 year old (as much as we love him).  We then had everyone back to our house to decorate gingerbread houses, play some games, eat some appetizers, and watch Dick Clark's Rocking New Years Eve.

We decorated gingerbread houses last year with the Gormley's and Josh's was an epic fail, it turned out to be a bunker instead of a house.  This year there was improvement!  It is always fun to see how creative people are.  We posted these pics on facebook to see if we could award a winner...but never decided who won (which one would you choose?)
This is Jacob's...check out the cool windmill

It was a great way to ring in the New Year!  We look forward to what 2012 has in store for the soon to be 4 Smart's!
