I got a new camera for Christmas and I realized that I still needed to take one year pictures for Evie! So, I did. Of course Gracie Leigh had to get in on the action. My girls are beautiful. There are no if's, and's, or but's about it. I love them.

As cheesy as it may sound I often think of the song "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent
when the new year rolls around. How do you measure a year?
What do you consider important enough to count?
Our year was hard, a continuation of 2011 which was the hardest year
of our marriage thus far.
However, Beau and I are blessed beyond measure.
So I will not say good riddance to 2012, but thank you.
Thank you for what you taught me, and thank you for helping me become
the person I am today.
For I am better today than I was yesterday.
Happy New Year.

This year was full. Full of goodness and saddness, hard times and wonderful times. We moved into an incredible neighborhood and incredible ward. We have met people here that I feel like we've known for years, not just months. Our trials have brought us to the place we are now and I couldn't be happier.
Cheers to 2012.
We've been waiting for you.
