saying goodbye to 2012.

My 2012 definitely had its fair shares of ups and downs, as well as tears and laughter. Overall, I’d say that it was rather enlightening. Just by testing my limits, I learned so much about myself throughout these past twelve months. Some bad. Some good. The learning experiences along the way, however, have made me a stronger person.

So, with 2013 right around the corner, I thought I’d finally post an entry about some of the highlights from December 2012, considering a month has gone by without any update. December, at least for me, always seems to be a blur. Hmm…? What happened this past month? *Well, maybe if you blogged more, Sarah, this wouldn’t be an issue.*

Holiday festivities consumed most of this month. As I wrote in my previous post, we decorated the tree in a non-traditional way. We, technically just me, wanted to do a purple and orange colored tree. I know, I know. Not very typical, but I thought it would be fun. Turns out, we had a lot of fun with this one. The best part about our 2012 tree was the abundant succulents and air plants that were scattered all over the tree’s branches. Here are some other photos of the 2012 Kee tree:

…and a picture with the pups, of course!

We threw a holiday party for friends, a gingerbread house making party to be exact. Yup, we pretty much were on a sugar high that whole weekend. Unfortunately, I don’t have the pictures of all of our concoctions put together. Looks like I’m gonna to have to bug some friends for the picture of the whole gingerbread village we created.

There was a holiday get together over at the in-laws, too. It was super funny watching everyone do the annual gift exchange. We came home with a cute apron, which I still need to put to good use. As for the dogs, Maui and Hilo were so excited to hang out with their Westie cousins.

We also squeezed in a quick trip down to So Cal. The dogs have learned that the beach never gets old. I wonder where they learned that one from, hehe. 😉

There are hundreds more photos I could share from this month, but I guess I’ll leave it at that. It would take me, oh you know, A WHOLE MONTH to blog about all of the stuff that happened in December. Doh! This is why staying up to date with the blog comes in handy.

Wishing our families and friends a Happy New Year! 2013’s gonna be a great year. I can feel it. 😉

    I always look forward to your blogs. It keeps me connected. Next year I’m going to focus on crops. I haven’t scrapbooked for myself since may. Now I’m a year behind and will make it a priority. So thank you for being there and having your crops. Thanks again
