Back at it and a 2012 recap

I've decided to start blogging again. I love being able to look back and see where I was and where I am going. Didn't write a single post in 2012. I do have an instagram account (@krisnyce) that serves me well in terms of looking back, but I miss the written part. SO I am going to slowly get back at it. Meanwhile, I am going to do a rundown of some random memories of 2012 (culled from IG photos):

January 2012:
Thomas was Mozart for his Wax Museum project at school:

Matthew won lineman of the year in football as a 7th grader:

We repainted our entire house, mostly various shades of gray:

Thomas spent another awesome weekend at Lindsey's Place:

We went up to Athens for a weekend of GA football:

Have been working hard in the gym and in the kitchen and lost about 30 pounds when this was taken:
