Here’s some highights of what went on in my life this past year:
I had to travel to Arizona, as we lost my mother on New Year’s Eve. This is one of the last pictures I have with her and my children:
But, it wasn’t all sad times, because I got to get together with my BFF from junior high. Aren’t we cute?
She even helped me decorate a cake for my daughter’s birthday:
We spent some time at the zoo together
And I got to spend time with my daddy
We celebrated my daughter becoming a teenager in Arizona as well. She’s talking to her BFF back home here
I got addicted to food auctions….SO,
I did a lot of canning
The cows we raised were finally ready for the freezer
We installed a rocket stove in our home
And that required us to gather a lot of wood. Fortunately, I have strapping boys at my disposal
One of my BFF’s and I got an opportunity to go to the Women of Faith conference for FREE
And I got to meet Crystal of Money Saving Mom. She’s super nice in person! Wish I could’ve spent more time talking to her.
My daughter is a budding artist, and she painted a mural on my wall for me
And, finally, a friend who we buy goat milk from let us help her milk goats one night! My youngest really enjoyed it!
2012…here I come!
