and that's a wrap!

How did we spend our last {much too fleeting!} moments of 2012?
Pretty much like this:

We loved on our family.

 Opened some prezzies & nearly imploded with excitement.

Expanded a costume collection by 300%.

Flew high in the sky on our way to see Jon's family! {Can I just tell you how fancy we are now??  No more road trippin' for this fam!  Which, by the way, results in 3/4ths less travel time and about 9/10ths less stink upon arrival.}

Tried to understand why those men by the planes had "Darth Vader light sabers too", and more importantly tried to figure out, "Do they want to fight me?".
The answer being no.

Enjoyed catching up with an old friend and fellow high school orchestra survivor{aka "dork-estra"}.
She played the base, I, the violin.  It was a friendship forged in the fires of ultimate uncoolness.
Ohhh... how much can change in 10 years!

 Went sledding!  Because, oh em gee, there is actually snow in Nebraska!

Within half an hour in the cold and some serious scientific analysis, Sam came to the conclusion that he was "pretty sure this is the North Pole".

Took a mini vacay inside a vacay and drove to Kansas City.

Loved on some more family.

And some more...

Bonded with the cousins. Even when they pull your ear.

 And finally, headed back home.

Hope you all had a lovely end to the year of twenty twelve!
Happy New Year!
