New Year's Eve 2012

We got to ring in the New Year with our friends Kathleen and Vaden and her sister and her best friend.  It was also Kathleen and Vaden's anniversary!!  We all had a great time at the local convention center listening to a local band perform and we finished the night at Waffle House.  It was my first time to eat there and I'm not sure I'll be back!
This was my drink for the night since I was the DD.

Christmas 2012

The only photos I took this year of Christmas was at our house.  We had to get on the roads really early so I didn't take any at my parent's house.  We wanted to get on the roads before the snow came and it was a good thing that we did.  We made it to Mena just as it was raining and changing over to sleet.  Mena actually got 12 inches of snow and the roads were so bad that we weren't able to come home until the 27th!  We didn't even get any snow at home and the forecast said we would.  Chris and I have had our fill of snow for a very long time!!
If you don't know me, I LOVE penguins!
This is actually a funny gift because I got hungry in the airport in New York City.  So Chris bought us chocolate covered pretzels and we finally finished eating them in Rome!
Chris wanted an old man sweater.
This is what it looked like when it started sleeting and snowing.
Snowball fight!!
This is what it looked like midway.
After it was all finished the next day.  Chris took me out on the mule and we drove around for awhile.
I love their wood burning fireplace!

December Photos

Here are some of the photos that I took in December.  I didn't take any photos of Morgan but he got really sick and we thought he wasn't going to make it.  He started vomiting and once he finally stopped he refused to eat anything for days.  We took him to the vet and all of the tests came back fine.  Thankfully he started eating the next day and he's back to his normal behavior of watching TV and playing with Newton.

Christmas Card 2012

If you weren't lucky enough to get one of our famous photo Christmas cards these were the pictures that we used for the card this year.  Chris didn't want to take our photos instead he wanted to use photos of us from our vacation.

Gondola Ride- Venice, Italy

Newton refused to sit for a good photo.  It was edited for the actual Christmas card.

Branson 2012

The first weekend in December we headed to Branson for the annual Bosch Family vacation.  The weather was unusually warm for December and it seemed like everyone near by went to Branson and Silver Dollar City.  I didn't take a lot of photos this year but I promise we did have a very relaxing time.
We played at the indoor mini golf course with Jakob.
