wrapping up 2012

Finally finishing up 2012 means I can move on to 2013, sooo..... 
here we go!!

 Had fun at our church's Christmas Blvd. and pics with Santa... as you can tell, Rowan wasn't too much a fan.  Is it wrong that I find it adorable?? ;)

 I had the pleasure of taking Miss Camryn to a professional ballet production of The Nutcracker by The Los Angeles Ballet. It was AMAZING, but even more amazing was the time I spent with my girl.  It was at UCLA's Royce Hall (awesome!!), and we headed to The Grove afterwards to hang out and have dinner.  My heart was FULL.
Gingerbread house decorating with "school" friends... always a fun treat!!

 Christmas caroling at two elderly homes with our homeschooling group was definitely a memorable experience. The kids sung and passed out goodie bags to residents. This was such a blessing for everyone! And, I must say, Tyler REALLY got high marks for being the ONLY boy there... such a sweet guy... :)

Camryn's Christmas dance performance and party is always fun... We are blessed to be a part of a wonderful dance "family"!!

 One of our FAVORITE traditions of the Season- cookie decorating at Grandma and Grandpa Bonafede's!! This year was extra special because of their NEW kitchen! Always one of our most fun activities during Christmas...

And as always- family time!!! There were SO many more pictures, I couldn't decide...
So we will just sum it up with these...
 These cousins are a BLESSING!!!

Can you just a get the feeling of all the madness?? ;P

We spent the last few days of the year with wonderful friends in Big Bear. It was an amazing time with falling snow, sledding, fires and wonderful company...

Couldn't forget the vans... ;)

Overall, our year was amazing!!!
We are SO incredibly blessed and the the Lord for all we have!!
On to 2013......
