Highlights from 2012

Wow!  Have you ever noticed how when you are a child, the year seems to go on forever and ever?  Well, now that I am all grown up the year just seems to fly by!  Seriously, where does the time go?  I just want to slow down the hands of time. 

In blogland, my little blog is just a baby, born in October.  But I am bound and determined to keep my blog up, and one of my goals for 2013 is to see how much I can make it grow!  I thought I would show you some highlights of 2012 for me and my family, before the blog, and after. 

Jason and the morning meteorologist, Tony on WBOY-TV, participated in the Polar plunge early in 2012 to benefit the Special Olympics.  BRRR!!

The kids got to meet Randy Moss at BW 3’s

Delaney played Irene in the 2012 Bridgeport High School production of Footloose!  Here she is with Kody Mullins, the lead male actor.

This is her in her Irene costume when she sang her solo.

A double birthday dinner- 12 and 16.

We visited Atlanta, GA over spring break 2012, we had a great time!

Georgia Aquarium

BMS boys track team took county championships!

Jason and Gavin got Gavin Strong for Bridgeport Connect.

Gavin made progress on learning to swim at the Bridgeport pool.  He wanted to marry his instructor, Rebecca.

My girlfriend Chrisanne got married the night before we moved into our new house.  The wedding was at Stonewall Jackson Resort, and the electricity went out!  We had fun anyway!

And this is our new house!  We moved on June 29th, in the middle of a power outtage.  It was not pretty.  

This is the view from our back deck.

We got to meet Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and go onto his RV.

My baby girl got her driver’s license!

A 16th birthday trip to NYC! 

First day of school for all three!

A weekend at Jellystone.

Delaney’s Junior Homecoming.
