Here is "Christmas Kristie" out in front of our studio entrance. This time of year, when we celebrate the birth of a special baby, the Son of God, it is a unique holiday season in the Smith family as we get ready to welcome our soon-to-be-born baby shortly after the new year. It's a blessing to be expecting, and we are so grateful to our families and ward members that have been and are so loving and supportive in this next transition of life. Merry Christmas!

A first look at our soon-to-be-born baby. This ultrasound is about 2-months old, but still fun. It may be obvious, but this picture is rotated so he/she is looking at you, and rubbing his/her right eye with a little hand -- must be a little sleepy. This same ultrasound, we saw the baby swallow and yawn. Cute. We were thinking, "Wow; there really is something in there!"
