First post of 2012

Whoops!!!  Look at that....it's already January 17th and I'm just getting around to writing my first post of the year. 

I hope you all had an EXCELLENT New Year's Eve and that 2012 is treating you well so far.
Things around here are great.

Jim, Zachary, and I spent New Year's Eve up in NH with our friends John, Leah and their kids, as well as a group of their kid's friends from (high) school.  It was a very fun, laid back night, and nice to get away - even if it was just overnight.  We spent the night in a hotel not too far from their house, got up on New Year's Day and went out for breakfast at a nice little place in their town.

Since then, we've just been living life, going to work, getting things done around the house,etc...etc...

We celebrated Zachary's first birthday this past weekend - yes, he turned ONE on Wednesday.  Can you even believe it?!?!?  It amazes me how quickly the year went by.  One year ago tomorrow (1/18) is the day that we brought him home for the very first time.  Looking back on it, I can't believe that he's been with us for a year already...it seems like it just happened.  Apparently time DOES fly!  ;-)

His First birthday party was a success and I think he had a great time.  We certainly did!  It was short and sweet (who the heck wants to spend hours at a one year old's birthday party?!?!) and I think that everyone who came had a lot of fun.

Here are some pictures from his birthday, as well as the party (Jim made all the cupcakes, which were crazy-good):


We also had a one year old photo shoot, with all photos taken by Barrie Smith Photography....as always.  :-)  Here are a few of those:

Great pictures of the family -- I wish there had been a couple more of the three of you. I have to 'fess up, however that my favorite non-Zachery picture has to be the heavily-frosted-in-jewel-color cupcakes!
