|Blizzard in Evansville|
Evansville got about 11 inches of snow the day after Christmas, their 3rd highest snowfall in one day. Mike, mom and I stayed inside and relaxed with a couple of games of Scrabble.

|Melting beads in toaster oven...what is wrong with this picture?|
We thoroughly enjoyed the game "Catch Phrase". We laughed so hard at the descriptions of songs and artists. Eric's impression of Stevie Wonder will forever be etched in my head...

And looking back at 2012, it was a great (though not always easy) year! After months of hard work remodeling my house it sold within 2 months!
After 4 years of being married and living in different cities, I finally moved to Indy to live with my sweetie! And I am starting to learn about this retirement thing...
We got to see the world this year...from Temeculah, CA to La Salina, Mexico to Big Sky, MT to Kinsale, Ireland, each beautiful in its' own unique way.
And we stepped forward into new technology...smart phones and smart television. As Mike says, hopefully they aren't smarter than us. And Direct TV entered our house in Brownsburg! YEAH for the the Weather Channel, CNN and HGTV! And then there is watching Mike text. I never thought I would see the day he would type "LOL"...
We had some wonderful visits with family and friends throughout the year. And whether folks live in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Montana or Mexico, we are fortunate to have such great people in our lives. Thanks to all of you for making this such a great year!
