Twelve for Twelve

Twelve Pictures for 2012

We celebrated the second birthday of our little Peanut. We celebrated her with cake, ice cream and a blanket making party, while Ellie celebrated in Heaven.

In February, we welcomed our nephew Layton into the family! I love this picture of his little feet! And so proud of my SIL for how awesome she did with a long and really hard labor and delivery!

Spring was definitely dominated by growing babies- and my growing midsection! At this point I was still able to move around somewhat easily. We were very happy to have made it to this point in the pregnancy!

Letting Max do some VERY messy sensory play with shaving cream and water... I tried to make sure that he got plenty of special activities in before the babies arrived.

The babies holding hands in the OR. Unbelievably amazing day.

Our first "as-close-as-we-are-ever-going-to-get-to-a-family-picture" picture.

Love this picture! And I love hanging out in the yard with the kids in the evening.

In August, we had our big Light Up the Lanes event for Ellie's Light and raised $9500. It made me pretty emotional to see Ellie's picture everywhere at the event. I miss her so much but it's pretty amazing to see what wonderful things her little life inspired.

In September, we welcomed another little nephew, Alex! I am so glad that the babies are going to have cousins that are so close in age!

Max at exactly 4:44pm on October 3rd. His 4th birthday!

While this great look we are sporting was for a Halloween party, the party was actually in November, so I can use it for my November picture! We live in an awesome neighborhood with really, really wonderful neighbors and we never get to do stuff like this- it was a really fun night!

Christmas Eve. Celebrating Addy and Levi's first Christmas, Max's excitement in "normal" kid Christmas activities while missing our Ellie.

It was kind of hard to just picture twelve pictures from the thousands we've taken this year!

You have such a beautiful family. Is it scary that the 80's look REALLY good and normal on you guys? :)

I think Ellie's cake is gorgeous, but obviously it would be better if she were here to celebrate her birthday. Thinking of you as that day approaches.

Amazing that Ellie's Light raised another $9,500! You guys are doing such good in her name. She would be so proud.
