2012 Review - photo style

I came across this idea and decided I want to do it.
The year in review - with pictures!
Alexander started the new year by celebrating with his best friend, Addie.
Alexander turned 5. 
His party was at a local bouncy house.
It snowed the day of the party but everyone battled the elements to join us in the fun.
The entire week after Alexander's birthday, we were snowed in but we were able to use Umma's car to get out when we needed to.
This was the first year Alexander really got into the snow so we made our first snowman.
Alexander played basketball for the first time.
He improved each game and we were proud of how hard he tried and got along with his teammates.
In preschool, Alexander's writing was improving.
He also told us we should have given him a shorter name.
And we started working on reading more by creating a train track with words written at each station..
We went to the ocean to celebrate Mom and Dad's 15th wedding anniversary.
Alexander enjoyed his first hike and the stormy ocean weather.
Alexander also started swim lessons again, which would continue until January.
And result in passing Level 3 in December!
We celebrated Easter at Grandma Great's house.
And spent a few days of spring break at the Great Wolf Lodge with Auntie Kimmie, Uncle RJ and Lorelli.
Alexander finally mastered how to ride a bike.
And just kept swimming.
Alexander said goodbye to preschool.
And hello to summer!
We hiked.
We celebrated the 4th of July with friends and family.
We made some money.
We started the month with a really fun trip to MarDons with our best friends.
It was hot.  Really hot.
Alexander went tubing for the first time!
The long awaited wedding of Jo-Jo and Zak happened!
Alexander was the most handsome of ringbearers.
School supplies
Meet the teacher
First day of school!
We said goodbye to our beloved Ho-Ho Papa.
(this is when I realized I don't have a single picture of Alexander and Ho-Ho Papa for 2012 and lost my shizz)
We spent time with cousins.
And celebrated Christmas with Big Papa and Umma before they left for Arizona.
Alexander began his love affair of Legos.
Someone lost a tooth!
Had the stomach flu and missed all of Thanksgiving.
But still managed to decorate a tree or two.
Alexander introduce Addie to decorating at Mommy's school.
We rode the Santa train with Jo-Jo.
Decorated our first gingerbread house.
Met Santa.
And spent time as a family.
Life with Alexander in 2012 was awesome.
We are excited for what 2013 will bring.
It is so hard to believe we have a 6 year old!
