I tried so hard to not wish the holiday season away and have it slow down so I could enjoy and take it all in…but looking back it seemed like it was over in an instant!

We went out to Utah and had a lot of fun for Thanksgiving with Shaun’s family. The cousin’s had fun playing together and we finally got a family photo of everyone while we were there…the Edwards family has grown quite a bit since our last family photo! The grankid picture didn’t come out ideal, but we still think it’s pretty awesome :)

December was a fun month while we got excited about Santa but really tried to remember Jesus and the real reason why we celebrate Christmas.  I was really excited because we put Christmas lights up on our house for the first time ever!! I loved driving up and seeing the house all lit up!

I am all out of words, I know we did a lot but I can’t remember…this is why I need to document our lives on here better! So I can remember what I do all day every day and why I feel so busy…but can’t remember what I was busy doing! I wonder, sometimes, why I keep up a blog but I guess I feel like if no one else read it, at least I can have a photo journal of our lives.

I just completed a blog book (from 2009-2012) and I can’t wait to get it in the mail…so that is why I keep it, right? Family history!

Also, sorry for the serious dump of pictures…

We even found a geocache…not on purpose…but it was still fun. We put in a movie ticket.

So there you have it, the 2012 wrap up! It’s a lot to take in…I realize there are probably around 50 pictures…hopefully less, but still, a great deal to look at. If you made it to the bottom, WAY TO GO, and thanks for looking! I hope you all had an awesome 2012 and are looking forward to 2013!!
