happy last day of 2012!

Well, we made it through another year! Woo hoo!

Hope you enjoyed your celebrations! I saw many happy faces on Facebook. Though I pray for comfort for those who lost loved ones - I know many this month who have.

I immensely appreciated every minute I got to spend with my family. We had a great time at my sister's with cousins and grandparents and played many games and ate wonderful meals! My only regrets were that I didn't get many pictures and that it was way too short!

And tho I was only gone a short time, I'm still catching up! I'll tell you about it in a song...(This has been done before, but this is my rendition)

The Twelve Days After Christmas

On the first day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
A fridge in need of food!

On the second day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Two tons of laundry!

On the third day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Three dozen emails!

On the fourth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Four stacks of junk mail!

On the fifth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Five extra pounds!

On the sixth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Six inches of snow!

On the seventh day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Seven days to New Year's!

On the eighth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Eight hours to sleep in

On the ninth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Nine games of basketball

On the tenth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Ten sales for shopping

On the eleventh day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Eleven chores awaiting

On the twelfth day after Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Twelve hours of editing!

I'm also way behind on visiting blogs. I am trying to rectify that and get my 2013 New Year's Resolutions up this week too! Thanks so much for an awesome 2012! See you next year!

I've learned that sometimes it's better to spend less time behind the camera and more time in the experience/event/fun. :)

Glad you had a good holiday, Tara! Happy New Year!

I love that Twelve days after Christmas thing. I didn't get the five extra pounds (being sick is good for something, I guess) but did get about 18" of snow but the rest seems about right.

Happy New Year.
