It’s hard to believe that it’s the last day of 2012. Wow! It seems that time passes quicker and quicker the older I get. Before we close the book on another year though, I thought it would be fun to look back at all of the parties this lil’ piggy shared with you this past year.

You can click on the photo or the name of the party to read all of the details. Ready? Fasten your seat belts ‘cuz it’s going to be a wild ride!
