Week 52 in Pictures ... The End

Happy New Year!

We've finally reached the day I've been looking forward to for a while ... the last day of my Project 366 for 2012.  If you recall, this is my third year in a row for Project 365 and I'm very excited to be done!  I still plan to take pictures frequently during 2013, but I won't have the pressure of taking a picture every.single.day.  I plan to participate in Gina and Tamar's Project 52.  A photo a week ... I can definitely handle that.

Before I show you my last nine photos of the year, I'd like to share my favorite photo from December.
My friend, Jenn, allows me the privilege of photographing her youngest from time to time. Isn't he adorable?!

Now, let's take a peek at my last photos of 2012 ...

I took this for the tangled prompt for the last Scavenger Hunt.  This ornament is tangled every year we get it out of its box.

Our tree late on Christmas Eve.  I'm glad I took this because the kids were up early and had their gifts already sorted by the time I got up on Christmas morning.  :)

Honey found a new bone in her stocking on Christmas morning.

A slice of our Happy Birthday Jesus cake.  For details on how to make it, just click on the link.

The kids each got a special lollipop in their stockings this year.  Instead of a stick, they were on Abominable Snow Monster teeth or Rudolph's nose.

Spent some time playing outside with Alex.

Lots of birds visiting our back yard feeder.  Especially since we got all this snow.

Our Christmas lights have icicles hanging from them and they look so cool!

The kids and I all ready to bring in the new year with our home made party hats.  I couldn't talk Daddy into getting in the picture with us.

Thank you for joining me in my photographic journey this year!  Now to just get my Project  Life album completed.  :)

What a wonderful ending week. Those icicles off your lights look so neat! We usually do a birthday cake for Christmas too. The shot of yours is so neat with the lights is the back. You have a great eye for composing shots. Love the cardinal too. Happy New Year!

I adore the last shot :) AWESOME ice. We have rain gutters on this place so minimal ice at the moment. Sort of bummed about that one. I did find some though & will have to photograph them. So happy to take a bit of the pressure off so it's easier to participate in the sharing this year. I have to say I am still so impressed that with all you had happening this year you still managed to keep up the project. Thank you!!

HEY!!! I've been avoiding my blogging since I said I was coming back... way back in April. =/ Just needed a break I guess. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow! I JUST noticed that you left a comment for me in October. Thank you for checking in!!! I'm good... we're all good. Just needed the break I guess. I'm working to come back now. I've been checking in on your pictures via a Pulse app... you always have most wonderful pictures!! Always inspired by what you post. Anyway. Happy New Year and CONGRATS on getting through another year. Definitely a BIG accomplishment!!!
