I knew there would be some pictures and here they are.

Now I know Kristie has sent these pictures to most of us in our family and about 5 million of their friends and family, but I still wanted to show them again to everyone else who might not have seen them. I also got an email from our cousins John and Cindy Phillips with a couple of pictures of their new grandson. How cool is that? Well, here they are.

Little baby girl Noelle Kristine Smith was born on April 20th – a birth date that she will get to share with her 1-yr-old cousin Vivian in Canada. What are the odds of that?

Check this out. We have been blessed with the news of another baby born to Luke and Darci Barret. The proud grandparents are cousins John and Cindy Phillips. This is so cool.

This is our new little boy Jake and his sister Riley (2 years). Jake was born on his sister's birhtday the same time even. April 21 he was 7 lbs not as big as Noelle (poor mommy). The parents are Luke and Darci Barrett. (our daughter) Thanks for keeping us up to date on all your family.
Love Cindy

One day after Noelle was born. Our family is truly blessed.

They share the same birth day also. What are the odds of that? By the way, both of those kids are so cute they have to take after their Grandmother. Check it out for yourself. Here is a picture of cousin John when he was a kid.

Yep, Riley and Jake for sure take after Cindy's side of the family.

Thanks for sharing these photos with us.

Keep the pictures coming. This is pretty fun.

There is a NEW SMITH in town!!!!!

She's finally here!

Welcome to Noelle Kristine Smith

She was born Friday, April 20, 2007 at 2:29pm.
She weighed 9lbs 11oz and 21inches long. (Smith tradition)

The delivery went great and Kristine is recovering perfectly.

Gene and Kristine want to thank you all so much for all your love and support and especially your prayers.

The PROUD Grandparents (for the second time) are Don and Lynda Smith. We will patiently wait for the many pictures to come. (We need lots of pictures)

Way to go Kristine. Way to go Gene.
And God bless little Noelle. We can't wait to meet you.

Ruby's Photo Album

This is a picture of Ruby and her cousin Carol. Carol is the daughter of Grandma Bollingmo's sister. This is my favorite picture, although all of these photos are priceless.

No one knew who the baby was in the last posting. I am really suprised that Greg Tober didn't know who it was.

These pictures are from the Bollingmo side of the family. There are a lot of Mom's friends and a lot of her family.

I hope you enjoy.

Just Some FUN Pictures

Click on picture for more.

Here are more pictures for your pleasure. Don't be too hard on us. It is just the way we were.
Please comment when you can.

I have a question for the next posting.

Can anyone tell me who these babies are in the next picture?

O.K. so I gave you a hint on the first one.

Ruby was born in 1918 and Margaret was 7 years older. That is an old picture.

You still don't know who the second baby is.

This is Dad

Click on the picture for more

This is dad in all his glory. He wasn't in very many of the pictures
because he was usually behind the camera taking the pictures.
Leave a comment if you have any "special info".

Friends from church

Click on image for more pictures

These are pictures that were labeled 1945 on the slides. Mom said that they were Dad's friends from the Covanent Church that they went to. Mom knew some of these people. Her best friend Gerry is pictured in a few of them.
If anyone can identify the person in this picture, you will
have to win some kind of prize.
