2012 Recap

In honor of the New Year, here are some of our most memorable moments of 2012:


We spent time at the ranch and Hadley learns to walk!

Hadley and Kitty officially become best friends

Hads gets very sick for the first time. We spend a whole week quarantined at home with a bad case of Hand Foot and Mouth Disease and a double ear infection. Poor baby. 

We spent the first part of Easter weekend in Georgia and then made it home to celebrate Easter with Hadley.


We spent Memorial Day in Destin with the Schermerhorns! Such a fun weekend!!

We kicked of the summer at a family friends BBQ and snapped this cute picture of Emily and Hadley


In July we spent almost three glorious weeks in Destin....



Hadley's first day of pre-school


Had a girls weekend at the Stoneleigh Hotel

Our first Halloween at the house!


We celebrated Hadley's 2nd birthday!!


What a great year 2012 was!!

Christmas 2012

Even though it was nearly two months ago, Merry Christmas!! We had another great Christmas this year and its hard to believe it was our third Christmas with Hadley! We celebrate Christmas for a week straight and it started when Grams came into town from Wisconsin. 

Abbey and Zoey were off from school, so they had a sleepover and Abbey and Hads made a snowman, and Hadley discovered her most favorite toy ever. A Christmas Karaoke microphone. It's taken me nearly a month to phase that microphone out....

The real party started when the Ross Family got into town. We played a lot at the Euting's and Hadley was in Heaven showing off all of her stuff there. Every Wednesday Hadley spends the day with Aunt Jess and its her favorite day of the week (mine too!!) and so Hads loved being there all day with all of her cousins. We even went on an "adult only" dinner while the kids played at home!

We had our Christmas at the Johnsons. And had a great day. We opened presents and Hadley really got into it this year. As soon as she opened her Cinderella dress from the Eutings, she demanded to wear it immediately. 

 Opening gifts...

We took some great pictures of the grandkids.

What a difference two years makes!!!

Mimi got everyone adorable cupcakes and Hadley thoroughly enjoyed her princess cupcake!

We had a great Christmas!

We had our annual Christmas Eve Brunch and this year the girls played upstairs with a babysitter. They spent most of the brunch upstairs but Hadley got very grumpy towards the end! 

We didn't take too many pictures at the brunch!

We went to the family service for Christmas Eve and Hadley lasted for about half of the service. She and Emily spent the other half out in the Narthex with Abbey!

We headed to the Gilmore's for the annual Christmas Eve party and caroling. One of my favorite nights of the year!!

We all spent the night at my parents and the girls were up wayyy past their bedtimes!

Hadley had a rough night that night and so Hadley and I slept until 10. We woke up and the kids (Us big kids too!) had a blast opening presents all morning!

The Rapunzel dress and their Doc McStuffins doctor kits were the big hits of the day. Uncle Mark was their patient all night long.

We all took naps and helped my mom get ready for dinner that night. The Gilmore's joined us for Christmas dinner and it was delicious!

It was such a great Christmas this year. We were exhausted on the 26th. Hadley slept until 10, took a 4 hour nap and still went to bed on time! The Holidays wear her out!! Thank you to all of our families for making this Christmas so special. We are so lucky.
