Wow! I made it to my December recap just in the knick of time. 2012 has been a a heck of a ride. We started the year off with the loss of our dear sweet Winnie, I hosted a "fancy" tea party for 18 little girls for Emma's fifth birthday, Tyler had two great baseball seasons both of which were coached by Marshall, Emma started Kindergarten, I went back to work as an editor/writer for an online education company, we went on some great trips, we were devastated by the loss of  Bill Valenzuela, Hudson Harry Strohl was born, we traded in the Volvo and I got a new Buick Enclave, we laughed, we cried, we sang, we danced, but most of all at the end of each day we hugged and kissed and told each other how much we all love each other. I am blessed beyond words to have such a crazy, busy, chaotic life and I wouldn't change a thing!
Here are a few pictures from December.
Elvis was a silly elf this year. I think we had more fun with him this year than ever before. I am also proud to say he never "forgot" to land in a new spot the whole time he was here!
Hudson Harry Strohl 12/20/12 8lbs 9oz. I sure can't wait to kiss that sweet face!
Our dear friend, Celesa Felix, took our family pictures this year. I love the setting and those two cute kiddos!

Christmas was a quiet one this year. It was just the four of us but it was still a wonderful holiday. I love Christmas and I from the looks on the kid's faces in these pictures they do too!
Santa presents.

The aftermath!
