Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013.

It has been quite a year - and a couple of months at that. I haven't been good about posting to this blog and I miss writing. After finding out I'm pregnant, my need to be with my family and enjoy the last few months with my only child has increased and my need to write and share on this blog has taken a backseat.

It was one year ago today that I started this blog. I hoped to share more pictures, experiment with new recipes and share the transformation of our new home with family and friends. I knew it was inevitable that this blog would change as our family does. There is just not enough time to post three or four times per week, but rather, I'm committing to posting one time per week and including our most recent pictures.

Last night, we celebrated the last day of 2012 by having a fondue dinner (a new favorite from this magazine) and reminiscing about the year. I'm certain this year will have new challenges, but I haven't been this excited about the upcoming year in a long time.

Here are some pictures from the last couple months I've been wanting to share. And please, please come back soon.





From the top: 1) It melts my heart to see how happy this little girl is to be welcoming a baby sister next April. 2 & 3) Our first (and hopefully last) ER visit for stitches. 4 & 5) So excited for Santa! 6) Daddy and Emmerson having snacks at the table Santa brought. 7) My family at Christmas dinner. 8 & 9) Emmerson's date night with mommy and daddy to see Rudolph at First Stage. 10) Emmerson's preschool Christmas program 11) So proud of that decorated tree!
