2012 came to a welcome end. After a year of much upheaval, change, and adjustment, we were very much looking forward to closing the books on the year and starting fresh with little excitement on the horizon in 2013.
Unfortunately, we didn't get our act together in time to arrange a New Years Party. Scott and I just didn't have our hearts in it, but the boys remembered our "New York New Years" of the past and wanted to celebrate. While I was at work, Scott rallied them to make decorations and dug up some fun new years traditions, like eating 12 grapes to kick off the New Year. We embraced the west coast time difference and had our celebration when the real ball dropped at 9PM.
In the end, closing out the year with just our little family, was very fitting. In a year of change, we clung together and learned to find more joy and wackiness, right under our own roof. We survived it together... and I think have come out stronger on the other side.
