2012 has been a blessed year here at Home with the Boys, both for our family and for the blog.

I have so enjoyed connecting with LOTS of new readers! Your comments and interactions on Twitter and Facebook just make me grin from ear to ear. Seriously.

And God has been stirring new things in my heart for our home and for this place that I cannot WAIT to share with you! My heart races at the thought of how He is moving, but He is also teaching me patience and the perfection of His timing, so I will follow His leading as I blog here in 2013!

I’m also working on a blog redesign, but family comes first, so it’s taking a little longer than I originally planned! And that is just fine with me!

To wrap up the year at Home with the Boys, I’d love to share the top posts from 2012, just in case you missed any of them! And maybe you wouldn’t mind sharing YOUR favorites here in the comments? I always love knowing if someone enjoyed a certain post or series – keeps me connected with your hearts!

Here are the most viewed posts of 2012 at Home with the Boys…

1. Big, Beautiful {Paper} Snowflakes {Tutorial}
