Year in Review

Happy New Year! It's hard to believe that 2012 is here.
I always try to do a year in review post to share with you, and I really enjoy looking back over the events of the past year. I'm always surprised by what I've forgotten and always enjoy seeing how God has taken care of us for another year!
Below you will see my favorite pictures for each month, and also the first sentence from each blog post for that month.


"It's time for another recipe."


"The good people at CSN stores are offering a giveaway!"


"I've been so blessed by the family I was born into."


"Isn't this a beautiful barn?"


"Have you ever made a photo book online?"


"During Andy's time home, I got to be part of something pretty special".


"Happy Birthday to the USA!"


"I've shared before a few stories about the cute little lady at the nursing home who calls me Coco."


"The other day Heather was looking out the dining room window into our backyard, and she said there was something in the tree out there."


"We have had such a beautiful Fall here"


"Wordless Wednesday"


"Last week was a tough week for our family"
