2012 Year End Review

I always like to do a year end review in December before I have my blog printed for the year.  2012 was a great year.  

We rang in the new year with a sick little boy.  Hudson ran high fevers for 9 days straight and finally started to feel better on New Year's Eve. 

 New Years Day was spent at the lake with friends.  This was a really fun time.

We went to High Springs to visit with family on MLK weekend.  We had a great time.

Hudson went to his first circus, we celebrated Daddy's 34th birthday, and H had his first dentist appointment.

Ella turned 5, and we had fun in Alabama at her birthday party.  We went to the St. Patty's day parade downtown, and Hudson had Spring pictures made.  We had a fun Easter Egg hunt/party with friends, and prepared for Baby Charlotte.  Charlotte was born on March 30th. 

 Spring Break started off the month, and we went to Atlanta with Erin and Ila Jane to celebrate Peyton's 2nd birthday.  It was great to see college friends.  Hudson had his first visit to the Augusta National to the Masters golf tournament, and we went to zoo with Ila Jane.  We celebrated Easter, and went to see the monster truck show.  Mommy turned 32, and Aunt Jeanna came to visit.

 Hudson got his new big boy bed, we had pictures made for Rara for Mothers Day, H went on his first limo ride with Mawmaw, we kicked off summer at the splash pad, and we went to the mountains for a few days at Piegon Forge and Dollywood with Ella, L.D., and Lynda.

 Hudson finished up his music class, Ila Jane and Claire both turned 3years old and had fun Princess parties, and Charlotte turned 3mo. oldHudson and Claire were enjoying lazy summer days. 

 We were spending lots of time in the pool during the summer. July 4th was fun, but low keyHudson started swimming and jumping into the pool without floaties.  We had a great week at Hilton Head, and had lots of fun going to Sandersville with Ila Jane to see her Papa's cows.

This was a big month!  We had 3 year pictures done.  Hudson started preschool.  It was finally Hud's turn for a birthday.  Our family from Alabama came for his Lightning McQueen party, and friends from out of town as well.  We visited with lots of other family that were in town, and Hudson had a great party. 

 We closed out the summer at the lake.  Hudson was happy to do a little "motor boatin".  We had our annual check up on Hudson's kidney with Dr. Donahoe, and were pleased to get a good report.  Our Dawgs kicked off a great season, and we celebrated Charlotte's baby dedication.

Another busy month!  We enjoyed lots of fun Fall festivities.  We went to Steeds Dairy Farm again this year and had a blast.  Hudson had a family picnic at his school, and we went to Thomaston to visit at Mimi's house.  While we were there, we went to The Rock Ranch and has so much fun there.  After that, we were off to Cordele, Ga to ride on Thomas the Train for Owen's 3rd birthday.  There was more Fall fun at the WUMC festival.  We carved pumpkins with friends, and Hudson was the cutest cowboy (Woody) around on Halloween night.

Rara is now keeping baby Brantley.  Hudson really loves him.  We had Christmas pictures taken, and celebrated Thanksgiving with both our families.

Hudson loves going to Alabama, and was so excited to get there when we went at the beginning of December.  We really got in the Christmas spirit at the Prattville parade, and had fun at Lights of the South when we came back home.  Hudson has become really good at riding his bicycle, he sang for the first time in church, went to several Christmas parities with friends, went to his 2nd dentist appt., went to The Little Mermaid show, and was glad to have his mommy at his school Christmas party.  

We had a nice Christmas, and we were really glad that Uncle Lee got to come home for a few days.  

Looking foward to 2013!
