2012 in pictures

Posted by & filed under my life.

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!)

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.

Love, Chris

    Thanks so much for including me in your New Year’s message and pictures.
    I still enjoy remembering your being here with your parents for my
    mother’s special birthday. It was great getting to meet and chat with you!
    Mom is doing pretty well and we celebrated her 101 birthday in a much quieter
    way – but, still it was a celebration! Her sister, Barbara, is here visiting right
    Happy New Year to you and all your family!
