2012 Year in Review October-November

 This is the last of the 2012 link up, so there is still time to join. Sorry this is a little picture heavy. I didn't have internet so I haven't blogged about a lot of this.

October- Our family gained a new member. I am still not able to blog about that yet, but hopefully soon! 
Here's a hint

We moved into our new house. 4 bedrooms, a living room and a family room, and we have it completely filled! haha

Hayes had spaghetti for the first time. He loved it, of course.

November- Hayes met his new BFF Jackson, and even shared his highchair.

We had Chris' brother, his girlfriend and daughter stay with us for Thanksgiving.

We celebrated Thanksgiving and all 3 of the kids' birthdays at my in-laws.

And he's done!

December- Hayes had his first cold, and decided that daddy was much better for snuggling. =( haha

We decorated our house and set up the Christmas tree

I took Hayes swimming at the Aquatic center and he had so much fun!

We celebrated Hayes's first birthday rounds 2 and 3.
Hiding from the company

Round 2 was for our friends.

Hayes and Jessica

Hayes and Blair

First picture of Hayes as a 1 year old

Round 3 was my dad's side of the family

Everyone enjoyed passing around the sleepy birthday boy

Daddy got the last snuggles of the night

Christmas was a hit. Chris caught Santa just as he was leaving up the chimney.
So close! =)

Hayes loved his teddy bear from Santa
Hopefully I will get a chance to actually put together a full Christmas blog later.

Hmm now for my 5 goals/hopes
1. Have court finalized so I can blog about our family addition
2. Cook dinner at least 5 nights a week
3. Stick with healthy eating
4. Move more and be more active in general
5. Go to church more and be the best mom and wife I can be.

Wow 2012 is almost over, hope you all have a great New Year!

Your last three months have been exciting! Congratulations on buying a new house, so cute! I can't wait to hear about your new addition!!
Great goals, healthy eating is on my list too. It's so hard when there is so much deliciously bad for you food out there, haha!

I am also excited to hear about your new addition. Court stuff can be long so I hope it goes quick! I always love pictures so you can't go wrong there but I'd have died without internet! I think babies wanting their Daddy when they're sick is so sweet. Hope 2013 is a great year-- I wish I could commit to cooking more-- but I know that would be a total flop. Good Luck!

So happy for you for your addition! And yes I hope it can get all finalized soon. I used to be a permanency worker for DCFS so totally understand that the whole court thing can be a pain and take a while sometime.

Your Christmas tree is so beautiful all lit up!! Love that shot. And wow you are busy with some many birthdays and Christmas at the end of the year.

Wonderful recap once again!

So one minute I think Hayes looks like you and the next he looks like his daddy!

I love the Santa in the fireplace photo... super cool!
