A Year in Review {2012}

At the end of each year I look back at all the great things that happened and I realize how blessed I am. I look forward to making many more memories in the coming year.

This past year was a fun one as Mason turned one in January. The older he got the more fun we had as he enjoyed things more and more. We did a lot of things as a family and I’m not sure I documented everything like I should have, but here are a few highlights from 2012.

-We started 2012 with a big birthday bash for Mason’s 1st birthday.
-February we celebrated another year of life for my incredible hubby.
-Mason was able to meet the Easter Bunny for the 1st time in April. He loved it…ha.
-In May we bought our first home. It was such a wonderful accomplishment for Jordan and I. We worked really hard to find a great place to raise our family and we were blessed with a great home to begin creating memories.
-June began summer…a favorite season in our household.
-July brought us another birthday for me {blah} and the local county fair which is a favorite for me. Mason had so much fun this year enjoying the rides and seeing the animals.
-In August we took our first real family vacation to Gatlinburg, TN. Mason was such a great road tripper and we had SO much fun in TN.  Jordan and I visit Gatlinburg often, so it was great to take Mason and share with him one of our favorite places to visit.
-September rolled around which is one of my favorite times of the year. I love fall almost as much as I love Christmas. However, this year Mother Nature brought a summer of heat and drought which lead to a lack of apples and that meant no apple picking for us this year. {Boo!} We still enjoyed the wonderful events and beauty fall brings. ND football, bonfires, pumpkin chais…
-Trick or Treat? October brought pumpkin picking & Halloween. Halloween was extra fun this year with Mason. Though it was too cold this year to go out trick or treating, Mason still enjoyed dressing up as a little fisherman and passing out candy all night long. Oct also was the launch of my website!
-November began the countdown to Christmas for this Christmas fanatic! Plus, it brought us Thanksgiving; good food, time with family, and lots of shopping for Christmas.
-It’s the most wonderful time of the year! December brought CHRISTMAS!! Wahoo! Christmas was so much fun this year with Mason. He was so excited about Santa Claus, snowflakes, and presents. It was so stinking precious. I know this will be one of those Christmases I’ll hold tight to every detail because it was extra special.

I’m looking forward to all the wonderful things 2013 has planned and all the memories I will get to document.

May 2013 be a special year for you and your families as well!
