New Year's Eve 2012

As we say good-bye to 2011, we take a moment to reflect back on our experiences. In February, we celebrated Austin and Addison's 1st birthdays. We found out we were pregnant with our second set of twins in February as well. In May, we said goodbye to John's grandmother who is celebrating this new year with Jesus. Also in May, John rediscovered his relationship with God and made some changes that have allowed him to be a better husband and father. We survived the hottest summer in Texas successfully without melting (which I thought I was going to do numerous times). In September, John and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary. In October, we welcomed two beautiful sons - Weston and Grayson. A&M wrapped up their final season with the Big 12 and is headed to the SEC (prayers that they win at least one game next year!) 2011 has been incredibly good to our family and we look forward to what God has in store for us in 2012!

For New Year's Eve, we kept it casual. John grilled steaks (yum) and we celebrated with our sweet children. John and I watched the ball drop for the east coast then promptly went to bed. I know, I know - we are party animals.
Me and Addie...

John and Austin...

By this point, Austin is hungry and totally over the New Year's hats.

Weston seems pretty excited while Grayson just looks grumpy. In reality, Grayson is just getting ready to fall over and is wondering why I'm too busy snapping pictures to keep him upright.

We did our own countdown since our kids wouldn't make it to midnight. We didn't either. :)

Happy New Year from the Rosies. We wish everyone the best for 2012!
