Bye Bye 2012!
This year FLEW by so fast!! We had some exciting milestones and scary times in our families this year so I thought I'd take some time to reflect on this past twelve months ~ as I prepare for a NEW YEAR starting tomorrow!
Our oldest graduated HS, started dating a beautiful girl, took his first road trip with friends to another state, house sat for my parents while they were in Europe for a month, moved away to college and turned 18.
Our middle got a job, started dating a beautiful girl, dual enrolled in college and HS and turned 17!
Our youngest started driving a car, turned 16, and ventured out in 10th grade by joining multiple clubs/groups at school.
My father had a major heart scare and ended up with multiple stints in his heart! So glad that he pulled through that with no major major surgery.
My sisters Mother In Love sadly passed away and we were able to go to TN to visit and attend the funeral.
My Mother in Love ended up in the hospital for almost 30 days and in the beginning weeks they didn't think she'd make it! Fortunately, she improved and with the help of physical therapy she regained a lot of her strength and was able to come home!
My Brother in Love moved to Kosovo for 6 months as a Fullbright Scholar! Loved reading about his travels and fun over in Europe but we sure did miss him while he was gone.
Other than that we've had a very Healthy & Happy 2012!
We know that a NEW YEAR is upon us and we pray that it's Healthier & Happier than ever!
My mother & father in loves!

Christmas at my parents house 2012
This was the first year since 2007 that we've all been in the same house for a visit.
Sad my grandmother couldn't be with us and visit was way too short but we had fun!

Looking forward to all the blessings God has in store for our family this New Year!
Hope you and yours have a VERY HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!
