A Look Back at 2012

Here's a look back at 2012.  It was a growing, rewarding, exciting, learning, changing, kind of year for our family.  Our days are busy, loud, crazy but filled with fun and love.  I am so thankful for these boys and their Daddy!
We started puppy school, Baylor started basketball, I went on a girl's trip to NYC, Tom and I celebrated his birthday in Tampa at the Zac Brown concert, and we ate lots of smoothies.
Baxter graduated from puppy school, we celebrated Valentine's Day, enjoyed the Super Bowl activities in Indy, and spent time at basketball games.
We went to Great Wolf Lodge, celebrated St. Patrick's Day, drove to Florida for Spring Break, and celebrated Mommy and Mimi's birthday.
We found out we were having a healthy baby boy!  We also celebrated Easter and the coming of spring.
Baylor played baseball and Cooper played soccer.  Baylor finished first grade and Cooper ended another year of preschool.
We drove to the beach with three other families and had a great trip with our friends.  Baylor's team won the baseball championship and Mommy and Sawyer had a baby shower.  We also started construction on a new master suite.  At the end of the month we headed back to the beach and stopped in Alabama on the way.
Our days were spent at the beach and pool.
Our sweet Sawyer Joseph was born and completed our family.
Baylor started second grade and Cooper started his final year of preschool.  We adjusted to being a family of 6.
We enjoyed nice weather and lots of playing outside.  Sawyer had his first Sunday at church.  Baylor and Cooper both played fall baseball.
We spent time at the beach during fall break, enjoyed the pumpkin patch and other fall favorites, and Halloween.
We celebrated Thanksgiving and started our holiday festivities early.
We were busy all month long celebrating with loved ones and rejoicing in the birth of our Savior.

What a great year for our crew.  I can say I was stretched and challenged in new ways and had some really hard days but I am truly blessed by these little ones in my life.
