2012 was quite a year for us. It had its ups and it had its downs. It was a pretty big year for us as far as our children go. We had our first all day school experience, we had our first non family member preshool experience and we for the very last time in our lives experienced a birth of our baby. We completed our family in 2012 so that was a pretty big deal. A couple weeks ago Kamrin even took extreme measures to assume no surprise babies would pop up on us :-) Its a very bittersweet thing to think we will never have a baby again. I know there will be times I miss having feeling a baby move in my belly and all the excitement a baby brings but Im so ready and excited to start a new chapter in our lives! We are very complete with our 4 amazing kids!!!
New Years Eve was very low key this year and I loved it. Kamrin had to work but got off early. We ran some errands and picked up a bunch of Red Box movies and Wii games. Im a wuss and hate being out on New Years Eve especially with my kids cause there are SO many drunk drivers and I wouldnt want to risk their selfishness hurting us. Not only that but Kamdyn NEEDS his sleep to function. He usually goes to bed by 7pm so midnight would have done him in! He did make it til almost 9pm that night though. Anyways we popped popcorn, played wii, watched movies and eat way too much junk food! We really had alot of fun just the 6 of us. By 930pm the older 2 were going crazy and I knew they wouldnt make it til midnight so we rang in the new year with New York at 10pm our time. Kamrin, Maddie, Jay and I were all cuddled up on the couch and when the countdown got to 20 we all started counting down. When it got to the new year Jay kissed me and Maddie kissed Kamrin. It was adorable!!! We then put them to bed. Kamrin and I cuddled on the couch and watched some tv. I had a mild headache all evening and at that point it was getting worse by the minute. At 1130 I decided I couldnt take it anymore so we went to bed and was asleep for our new year but oh well it wasnt worth the pain!!
Im so excited to see what 2013 has in shore for our family!! One thing is for sure is it will go just as fast as all the others. Before we know it Ill be writing a 2014 post!
