2012 was such a wonderful year of beginnings for us, and even had a few endings. Let's take a look back at our favorite moments of this eventful year.
We kicked off the new year, just the three of us. We shot fireworks in the street and made good use of our new firepit and new trampoline!
On New Years Day, we visited what is now our home church. I was so dreading church- hopping, and had been praying for a while about finding the perfect church for our family. It took this one visit to KNOW it was where God wanted our family!
We went to the circus. It was Shane's first time since he was a kid!
We wished our Tata a Happy Birthday from miles away!
