Goodbye 2012!

January 11th, 2013 . by Melissa

We are totally lame and didn’t do a Christmas card this year. Boo, I know. I just couldn’t find the time. So, thank you to everyone who sent us a Christmas card. I loved them all. Getting Christmas cards in the mail is one my favorite Christmas traditions. Here’s a  little review of our 2012!


January – I REALLY thought I was going to have a baby this month. I was convinced she would come 2 weeks early like Jack, but it never happened. Last January was a long month of waiting for me!


February – Our lives were forever changed when a spunky, little girl joined our family in February. She was born one hour before her due date and came to this world in such a hurry!

5 minutes old.

March – We adjusted to being a family of four and had a special visitor, Auntie Kim. We had fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Chi Town.

April – We blessed Cadence on Easter. Jason turned 29! And Grandma Newman came to visit!



May – We headed to Fort Lauderdale and met up with some of Jason’s friends. We loved playing on the beach with our kiddos and took a tour of the Everglades!



June – We had special visits from Grandpa Bernie and from Grandma Peggy and Terry. Jason and I went to an Iron and Wine concert in Chicago!

                                                                   Look! We are on a date, it's a miracle!

July – We visited my family in Southern Indiana and celebrated the 4th with them!

Jack and Great Granny.


August – We said goodbye to our dear friends, the Taylors. :( It still makes me sad. Miss you guys!


September – We visited the most magical place on earth, Disney World! And we also made a quick trip to Utah.


October – I turned 27! And Mom and Terry got married!


November – Jack turned 3 years old!!


December – We went on a special ChristmaCruise with the Newman Family and visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    You guys had a great year! I also loved Jack’s conversations. I really can’t wait for that! (and wish we had the problem of Tommy wanting to sit on the potty longer!)
