This was hard. I am not going to even guess how many photos I took in 2012. I know it was over 10,000. I weeded those down to around 3000 or so that were actually "keepers". I tried to narrow those down to a manageable number to add to our yearly photo book. I think I was able to get it down to around 700. Then I tried to narrow it down even further for the blog...so here are my favorites from 2012. Some of these are from my fancy camera, some from my phone. None are edited. All are perfect pictures of a year that was, perhaps, the greatest of my life thus far.
This picture made the cutoff because of the generations it captures. Little Brother, Little Sister, their great Aunt and Great Grandmother...all together to celebrate a major life event.
|This picture captures so much of Little Sister's spirit. She is lively. She is outgoing, determined, focused and happy.|
|In June, Brandon and Molly came to visit us for a few days. We took the kids to Chuck E Cheese. They had a BLAST. Brandon kicked tail on the pinball machine and won the boys a boat load of tickets. Big Brother was pumped. This picture makes me smile.|
Just about any day when the weather is nice, we can be found at the playground. After a day filled with play we headed back on the walk towards our house. Luck would have it that the boys held hands...this is a phone picture that I just love!
|This was from Sister's 6 month photo session. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom. The look on Brother's face is priceless. Love!|
|Sensing a theme? These two are the best of buddies. You can just feel the love here.|
|And this one is just too precious not to include.|
