We began the year finding out I was pregnant! After Asher's unplanned homebirth, we decided to plan on this one being born at home. Thanks to a friend from church we were able to quickly find a wonderful midwife.
Knowing that once this baby arrived we would not all fit in our car anymore, we began to look for a minivan that we could buy with our tax refund. We planned on looking for a while before finding what we wanted but God provided exactly what we were looking for. So in March we became minivan owners!
Spring turned to summer...a hot summer! We spent lots of time playing outside and lots of time thanking God for air conditioning! We spent a fun week in June in the Wisconsin Dells for a family reunion.
|Our favorite attraction -- the small, free zoo and park!|
|NOT the amazing waterparks at the resort!|
August was spent trying to stay cool and preparing for the arrival of Baby. Tony and I were able to spend a fun kid-less day at the Lake Itasca Family Bluegrass Festival. (Thanks Nana, Pa and Ronda!)
Hannah Grace joined our family on September 10th. She continues to be a blessing and such a happy baby. She is proving to be one tough cookie as she (mostly) tolerates Asher's exuberant hugs and playing.

What an exciting and blessed year 2012 has been. We look forward to seeing what God has planned for us in 2013. Keep up with us here at Turn2theSimple and keep up with Tony's current building project at MosquitoCreekMandolin.
