The Brewers: A Year in Pictures.

The year started off with a bang. 

Cameron made himself a celebratory pair of Lt. Dangle hot pants/nevernude shorts.

He quickly involved our innocent 5 year old.

I found the most awesome of all benches.

We discovered that LACMA was one of our favorite spots in LA.

The kids went to their first show- Ben Kweller at Amoeba Records.

Mae and I even ended up in a music blog with our picture taken by a pro.

We managed to meet up with lots of new (and old) friends at Disneyland. 

We had fun at church and small group. 

It was sad to say good-bye to some friends.
Especially when you both love Jesus, jelly shoes and My Little Pony.

As husband and wife we got to get away for a few different fun days.

San Diego in February. 

We also spent a weekend shopping 
& seeing THE Ron Swanson (aka Nick Offerman).
We got to see Five Iron Frenzy at the Glass House.

We had the fanciest date ever. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and
                                   Dark Knight Rises at a 21 and over showing at The Arclight.

We spent our 7th anniversary in Lone Pine.

Earl came along.

We were Redwood Originals for Halloween.

We planted lots of plants- in our community garden and on our porch.

We played with our friends. 

We explored LA.

Easter at The Gibson.

Pre-Season Dodgers with Sarah May-May.

The Old Zoo.

We hung out on the stoop and had an apartment style pool.

We added fish to our zoo.

The kids made Daleks to prepare for the premiere of new Doctor Who.

Mae talks to France via iPad.

Our friend Pip drew all over the walls in the kid's room.
Usually this is not socially
acceptable, but in this case we asked him to.

Mae makes a brillant hobbit.

We went out to Yucaipa quite a bit.

An MC protects family members of a fallen soldier from the
Westboro Baptist "church"
at my old church in Yucaipa.

This kid wore a bow tie to a wedding...

Jeremy and Emily's wedding!

Mae had this pic snapped of her by the wedding photographers.

We took part in a few special days...
Record Store Day

Opening day of Avengers.

Free Comic Book Day.

We played...

Vacation was fun...

My Mom became a west coast rapper...

Mae received her first manicure- it was free because the lady's name was Mai.

We went to Cars Land.

Mae was a grim grinning girl at her Haunted Mansion themed party.

Cameron got a new tattoo.

Josiah joined up with the Sons.

Mae tried slack lining.

Mae got the best pair of shoes ever.

Mae got to try on flower girl dresses since my brother is getting married.

Ashley got to try on dresses since she is marrying my brother. ;)

We slept in a cabin in Julian.

There were many "firsts" this year.

Josiah got his first guitar.

First Ballet class.

Our first van.

First Capoeira class.

Josiah caught the first fish.

Of course, Josiah's First Day of School.

I went to my first Soundgarden concert.
Front row.
I have too many teeth in my mouth.

We bid Orange County a final fair-well when Cameron found a job in the valley.

I learned that the valley had many fun music related things to 
offer me.

I was thrilled to spend time with wonderful friends.

Opie and Mickey Mouse even hung out.
Weirdest fan crossover ever.

Josiah had an Oswald and Mickey themed birthday.

...and later in the same month managed to be a total ham at his Christmas recital.

We had a fantastic Christmas.

2012 was a year of big change for us.
We are thankful for the people, jobs and opportunities God has given us.
We love it here.

Here's to another year full of Brewer-awesomeness.
