2012 in Review Dec 31

I just can’t let the last day of 2012 pass without a recap. I never got around to one last year, and it made me a little sad, and we have had SUCH A GOOD YEAR. Seriously. I’ll rack my brain over the next few days, but I can’t remember a better one. (Sorry for the lack of pictures and even post links, but I feel it’s more important to live life than to blog, and more important to record than advertise.)

January brought a trip to Disney (we’re passholders, you’ll see this frequently ;)) to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights at Hollywood Studios and the 3rd birthday for my oldest babe.

February brought… Hmmm, I can’t remember February. Oh! We went tent camping with a couple of friends at Lake Louisa State Park. Always fun to sit and cook by campfire.

This March was the first year that the husband and I didn’t go all out for our anniversary. We used to always go somewhere, preferably without the girls, but last year we celebrated a friend’s wedding on our anniversary and were just too busy. Hopefully this will change, I have big plans for a family trip next March. Cross your fingers for us!

April brought the surprise purchase of a popup camper (that we have loved!) and swim lessons for both my girls. The baby did awesome. The older still hates swim lessons and isn’t that fond of the pool.

May brought our first trip to Disney’s Fort Wilderness campground in our new popup and my husband’s and my 30th birthdays.

June brought my mom’s 65th birthday and a camping trip to Fort De Soto park.

July brought my nephew’s 18th birthday, and his last trip with the family to Anna Maria Island for a long weekend of beach fun.

August brought my nephew’s Air Force boot camp, the start of my oldest’s 3rd year of preschool and a trip to Prague (that I swear I WILL blog about).

September brought another camping trip to Fort Wilderness.

October brought my first real sacrifice as a parent, the baby’s First birthday, and the most fun Halloween we’ve had yet. They both lasted almost an hour our trick or treating!

November brought a family Thanksgiving that was half it’s usual size, but nonetheless still a lot of fun.

December brought tickets to see Transsiberian Orchestra thanks to a very generous friend, the first Christmas my oldest understood, and an epic camping trip at Disney that included my niece for 5 days. In the Florida cold.

2012, I’m sad to see you go, but have high hopes for 2013! 😀
