Looking back at 2012

It's hard to believe another year is coming to an end.
 I thought it would be neat to choose a picture or two from each month to look back at our year. (It was really hard to choose only a couple!)
It was fun remembering all the things we did in 2012. 
This has been a great year for our family!
We had some big changes and new experiences. I look forward to 2013!

We started the year in January by going on a hike and enjoying the outdoors. Also, our nephew Lucas was born on the 12th and I watched him enter this world. Such an amazing experience! In February, we took the kids to a local children's museum in Tampa and Max started playing t-ball. Damian was the asst. coach. In March, we spent lots of time with family and friends at parties and also went to many t-ball games. In April, we celebrated Easter with our families. May was Mother's Day and winding down another school year. Max finished up Pre-K4 and Emma first grade.

In June, our ballerina Emma had her recital and Damian and I celebrated 10 years of marriage in Savannah. We also wrapped up another school year and began our summer vacation. July brought days at the splash park and packing our home up to move to Kissimmee. It was a big month in our house! In August, I turned 35, we took a trip to Tradewinds in St. Pete beach, and we continued to get settled in our home. August also brought the first day of school for my second grader and kindergartener. Max turned 5 at the end of the month and our new niece Abigail was born the day after his birthday. My uncle also passed away this month so it was a sad time for my family. September was busy with birthday celebrations for many and Damian turning 35. In October, we visited the pumpkin patch and kept busy with school and work.

In October, we cheered on our Florida Gators, celebrated Emma's 8th birthday with a sleepover spa party and a trip to the Magic Kingdom. November brought busy Wednesday afternoons: dance for Emma, basketball for Max, and Faith Formation as Emma prepares for her First Reconciliation in January and First Communion in April. Every Saturday morning we cheered Max on at his bball games. We also celebrated Thanksgiving with our families. This December, Max was a ringbearer in his cousin's wedding, Emma performed in Flakes and did a fabulous job. We visited Hollywood Studios, and we have been enjoying every single minute of our Christmas vacation.

Here's to a new year filled with many happy memories and experiences!
