This year I just couldn’t find the time to take a picture of Bella in front of our tree… so 2012 didn’t happen – do over! Actually, 2012 was a lovely year and whether we have photographic evidence or not it happened, it’s over, and on to 2013!
But first, a few highlights from 2012:
Bella or rather Bella Booperton, Dowager Countess of Spain Castle (as she is formally known around these parts) is now 4 and has a personal trainer. I was hoping Santa would bring me one of those – but instead he brought me a Kindle Fire and now Chad can’t get me to leave the gym because I’m busy watching movies on the Stair Master. Win.
Wedding in Hawaii Chad’s sister, Brandy, got married in Maui. It was a blast and we so appreciate them for having a destination wedding and inviting us! We spent a lovely week exploring the island, eating, drinking, and commenting on how much Bella would love to live there – with all the cats and birds everywhere.
Aside from the beautiful Hawaii, we did get to see other parts of the US: San Francisco for a Formosa Family function in August; Denver in September for some Broncos and visits with friends; and as always, Disneyland in November.
Chad has been offered a job in Salt Lake for when he finishes residency. Actually, he’s been offered a couple of jobs – but I’m not allowed to discuss which one he has accepted just yet. So basically – this is a useless paragraph unless you were waiting with baited breath to find out if we’d stay in SLC for a few more years. And the answer to that is: probably.
Happy New Year!
