2011 Retro # 4 Winter Picnic with the Smithie Kids
Ah, there are few things more wonderful then nieces and nephews. (Aren't they adorable!?) I got to take them on an Auntie-spend-time last winter, and a hot chocolate picnic was in order. It wasn't super cold, and the crunchy leaves sounded so peaceful. The stillness of winter woods is so quiet and yet so loud at the same time. I love it. See, that one little colorful leaf!? :)
And...here are the cuties themselves! (All of us in Winter makes me laugh...my usual knit cap makes me double over sometimes when I pass a mirror...)
Hot chocolate is good medicine.
Oh my goodness! Just look at them....
"Is'th my hair-a good?"
One wonderful thing about Georgia is that you have flowers almost all year round!
Bret III (I love you, buddy!)

Ronny is so.so. adorable. He found this wire while we were down there and drug it over all my himself. That child has got the muscle!
Well, toodles. Love all those chillrens' so much. All 17 of our grandbabies!
