So, I sat down to write a
Christmas New Year’s letter, and really, I didn’t know where to begin. So I’ve decided to let pictures from this year tell a story. I spent my year blogging, so if you want to learn about the year, you can read some of my blog posts.
Meanwhile, enjoy the photos! (And have fun making up your own stories!)
In case you didn’t feel creative, here are the back stories….

My parents wound up staying at my house for a month and a half while my dad got and recovered from surgery for a torn quad tendon. My mom’s black eye was the result of a face plant while tending to my dad. This was quite a story, this year. (My dad is recovering wonderfully back in Georgia, now. I almost didn’t post this picture because this is right before surgery and he was in such pain.)
Andy’s 4th cousin Tricia comes from Scotland for a visit with her sister-in-law Gina from Canada. Here the family is pouring over ancestry stuff. It was so great to meet them!

Columbus gets a look-alike Christmas ornament.
I wish you all a wonderful 2013! As Andy keeps saying, “it’s going to be a great year.” I hope it will be, for one and all, and that you all get to focus on what’s most important in your lives this year.
