Happy New Year!!
June 11, 2012- Camping trip at Buffalo Springs Lake!
July 7, 2012- We got to see fireworks after all! Because of excessive rain, Portales fireworks were moved. This made it possible for us to go. We enjoyed the fireworks with Mom and Dad and the Milnesand Fire Group.
July 9, 2012- New bike for my hubby. We went to pick it up in Amarillo and stopped by Palo Duro Canyon on the way home. It was a long day. Keeping the bikes upright was a chore.
July 11, 2012- We both have new bikes! Mine is a beautiful purple and M's is black. We will be taking lots of rides around the block now!
September 1, 2012- Plains Watermelon Roundup and Car Show. We went to the watermelon roundup with M's parents. It was a hot sunny day. We walked around, ate, and finally found the car show.
September 2, 2012- We missed seeing my brother and his family in Plains for his birthday, so we hung out with them today. We took some family pictures for them and grilled some good food. Happy Birthday Chad!
September 9, 2012- Wolfforth Balloon Festival!! We love this event. This is our 3rd year to attend and each year it gets better. This is the most balloons yet!
September 9, 2012- We went out to Apple Country for the 2nd day of the Apple Butter Festival after seeing the balloons at Wolfforth. There weren't many apples left. I think we will try for the 1st day this year.
September 10, 2012- Dillon and Carolina got married! They had a small wedding in Seminole. We were honored to take a few pictures of their special day.

September 30, 2012- Texas Tech Soccer game! We went to a few soccer games this year. I'm ready for more!
October 6, 2012- Assiter Pumpkin Ranch. Out on a morning drive, we decided to go out to Assiter and see what was going on. It was cold! I love the pumpkin field we took pictures of. It was a fun day, but we didn't buy any pumpkins. We thought we would go back closer to Halloween, but we didn't make it back.
October 14, 2012- We were invited out to eat dinner with Mom, Dad, Dillon, and Carolina. We had some good mexican food and even got a little shooting in before heading home.
October 21, 2012- The Pumpkin Trail is one of my most looked forward to October events. It's free and so much fun seeing all the pumpkins along the trail. This year we went early and got pictures before dark and then went back through and got pictures after dark.
October 28, 2012- We go exploring often!! Here is one of my favorite picture taking mornings of 2012.
November 13, 2012- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
November 24-25, 2012- We were off Thanksgiving Day and spent it with M's parents. We went out to NM on the weekend to see my parents. We went through the wells with Dad and then into Portales to buy a Christmas tree. We found a tree and even got it home and decorated it.
December 1, 2012- We go to the Post Christmas Parade every year. We go early for Post Trade Days and then watch the parade and enjoy a great start to the Christmas season. I love the small town feel to it all. This year the parade seemed a lot smaller and shorter than past years. I hope this year is bigger and better!
December 3, 2012- The house all lit up for Christmas!
December 8, 2012- Texas Tech all lit up for Christmas.
December 10, 2012- We painted some ornaments and it snowed a little! I love how our hand painted ornaments turned out!
December 18, 2012- We made our own wrapping paper! We used stamps, comic paper, and even duck tape and bottle caps. It was so much fun!
December 19, 2012- The sky was beautiful this morning! The rest of the day was so nasty. There wwere 60+ mph wind and lots of dirt blowing. I guess the saying is true...red sky by morning sailors take warning.
December 22, 2012- We had a spread at work tonight. There was so much food! Plasma did a gift exchange. It was good to hang out with my area outside of the fab. I came away with a leatherman that my hubby loves!
December 23, 2012- We missed Christmas on Dad's side last night, so we headed to Seminole this morning to visit with those still around and then went over to Mom's side to visit and eat.
December 24, 2012- Christmas Eve with M's family! Nick, Aubrey, Elora, Sianna, and Rowan were here this year! It was so good to see them.
December 25, 2012- Christmas in NM with my parents. We cooked stuffed french toast covered in strawberries, eggs, and ham for Christmas morning breakfast. Then Mom made us chicken potato squash casserole. We headed home before dark to find snow in Lubbock!
December 29-30, 2012- We cooked for my parents on the 29th and had M's parents over the 30th. We ended the year with our family!
December 31, 2012- New Years Eve with the love of my life! We drove out to Ransom Canyon and looked at the lights one last time and got brick oven pizza at Joes.
Wow! What a year we have had!! It was humbling looking back at our 2012. We are so blessed!
Happy New Year!!
