 It has been a busy year at our house.
Computer issues kept me from blogging.
but here is 2012 in pictures.

A trip to Pennsylvania in March took us
to the Longaberger Homestead

Coming home from Pennsylvania we stopped at
the motorcycle museum.
Lindy took a dance class.
She did great at the recital.
 End of the year awards day at school.
Lindy was awarded 3rd highest in her class for AR.
 Molly was awarded first place in her class for AR
 Molly was also awarded top AR
 score for the school.
We are very proud of them.
As reward for good grades and behavior
we planned a trip to Chicago.
 In June us three girls and mamaw took the train
to Chicago for a few days.
The girls shopped at American Girl.
 Visited China Town
 Navy Pier and Buckingham Fountain.
And the Shedd Aquarium
We had a wonderful time.
 The girls took swim lessons
 It really helped them.
 Soccer time
They love soccer
 and each other
 In July we went to Holiday World
 Mamaw and papaw went with us
 we  rented a camper at the campground
and visited the local places.
Like President Lincoln's boyhood home.
 The fall they switched to bunk beds.
We added to the family.
This stray cat has decided to call us his own.
They named him midnight.
Papaw made a cat house and the girls painted it.
