2012- The year that flew by!

January started off strong for me in regards to blogging. I celebrated a few birthday’s including a special 30th birthday celebration for Mrs. Organized and Sister Glamorous celebrated her 21st birthday!

My little family started the year with a hike in Casper’s Wilderness with some family friends.
We rounded out the month with our one year anniversary as homeowners and our first big mishap when pipes under our floors burst. That began our relationship with a great plumber who helped when Little C got super mischievous many months later.
A very eventful month! February marks my mom’s birthday month. I went to my very first and only Blogger Meet-Up so far with Nurse SC and Designer KR. I participated in my first blogger swap in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Little C and I ventured to an amazing location near us called Pretend City.  I hosted a playdate for Little C’s friends for Valentine’s Day.  My Hockey Husband who is an amazing chef surprised me with the best dinner a girl could ask for. Filet and lobster tails- yummy.

Hockey Husband and I celebrated another year together and continue to grow in our relationship and marriage with one another. I absolutely love this man.
My parents came to visit and spend sometime with us and get to do so Easter fun with Little C. Sister Outdoorsy had a birthday along with many more birthdays from family and friends.
After participating in my first swap, Nurse SC hosted our very own blogger swap- Spring Sweets Swap and it was a ton of fun!
Around this time, I fell off the blogging wagon. My home daycare picked up and Little C and I had lots of Spring fun. The birthdays continued into this month starting with Cousin Ballerina and my Rancher Dad who had an awesome birthday. Easter Sunday rounded out this month and we saw Little C really get into egg hunting for the first time. We participated in our town’s Spring Fling and I learned about the local Mom’s club.

I ventured off to visit Sister Outdoorsy as she graduated from college with her B.A. in Psychology.  I also got to spend the weekend with my mom for Mother’s Day a first since I moved away five years prior. I debated about what phone to choose.
Summer began with a family visit to the San Diego Zoo. Even though my blogging and subsided I was keeping my twitter and instagram feed up to date with cute family pictures of our visit.
We celebrated Little C’s second birthday.  We spent a week visiting my family amongst the relaxing backdrop of mountains and a lake.  Hockey Husband and I went on a getaway to Banff, Alberta, Canada.  My family hosted the first annual Lx6 Trail Ride through beautiful horse territory.
Sister Outdoorsy came for a visit after her graduatiing and finishing her job with her university. We had a great time as we visited Sea World and lots of LA attractions. My maternal grandmother passed away this month meaning an impromtu visit with my parents and the loss of my last grandparent. The month ended on a cheerful note as we celebrated Hockey Husband's birthday with a big bbq in the park.  
We had another family trip to Sea World, announced our pregnancy to friends. Hockey Husband and I attended my 10 year high school reunion.  After a fun and relaxing summer the daycare was in full swing starting with fun toddler preschool activities. We finished off the month with a family dinner in honor of MIL Loves-to-Cook.
Little C began his train obsession this month. He actually starting building the tracks that we have had for over a year and constantly playing trains. This is an ongoing thing. Little C had a blast when we hosted his cousins for a sleepover. We really got into fall activities when we visited a pumpkin patch and an apple orchard. Halloween was a blast because Little C is really getting the hang of this holiday thing and it was his Cousin Dirtbike's birthday so win-win!
My birthday month!! Hockey Husband hosted an amazing Italian dinner with pasta made from scratch including fettuccini and an amazing lasagna. Thanksgiving was hosted by Grandma Owl followed by family pictures the next day then family poker tournament.
After a drought on the blog I started to blog again mainly because Hockey Husband casually mentioned I enjoyed reading your blog. (well, that's all this girl needed to hear!)
MIL loves-to-cook hosted a beautful Ladies Tea to celebrate the holidays. We celebrated some birthdays and hosted a Christmas celebration at our home before spending the holidays with my family in another state.  We were welcomed to a white Christmas.  Finished the month off with some family pictures on this side
Tonight will end with a roaring bonfire in the snow! Happy New Year to you all!
