2012 Recap

Oh hey world! I know, I've been a bad blogger-friend! But I promise, I have every intention of being around for 2013. So, let's start in January. G was away at academy so the kids and I got to spend some time in Arizona and Utah with family.
In February we did the Color Run in Vegas, so much fun! The kids were sick which was pretty lame but they still enjoyed themselves. Cant wait for the 2013 run!
No huge changes in March, just enjoyed the summer weather. Plenty of trips to Dairy Queen.
April brought easter, a serious love of "noodles and trees", and K's first haircut.
In May the boys turned 2, we were able to watch Gayla run a half-marathon, G graduated from academy, and A started drawing faces.
In June we found out that K is in fact afraid of something, the car wash. A starts writing letters, we got a new truck! R and K start identifying letters/things. I'm on month 2 of prep and start baking a lot of unnecessary treats just to smell them.. haha, joys of dieting!
July came and went too fast, nothing too exciting.
In August we found a splash pad! I had only seen one in St. George, I had no idea we had anything like that here. For those of you who dont know, it's basically a cement play area made of fountains for the kids to play in during the summer. The first time we saw it the kids were fully dressed but we couldn't pass it up, they had a blast! A keeps asking when we can go again, summer cannot come fast enough! The Lorax also came out this month, the kids loved it!
I turned 24 in September. Tia Gayla also has a birthday this month, they came to visit and brought the prettiest cake from Tammie Coe Cakes
October is my second favorite month, I'm so excited that my kids share my love for Halloween! We carved pumpkins but they enjoyed painting them a lot more. We were the Rugrats, of course G didn't join in on that fun. I was Deedee, A was Angelica, K was Chuckie, and R was Tommy.
In November I re-opened my Etsy shop
, Brave came out and A watched Wonder Woman for the first time. She's now obsessed with Archery and fighting for women's rights in general. (;
December is a super busy month for us! A turned 4 and had a Brave themed party and then of course, Christmas.
We had so many good times this year, can't wait to see what 2013 brings!
