What a great review of Stephen highlights for 2012! Thanks so much for the memories!
This year will certainly be full of new adventures and events for Stephen, and it's wonderful to know we'll be kept abreast of it all right here by you ladies.
Happy New Year, and thanks for all you do!
Now that is what I call a year in review. Of course the subject matter didn't hurt. Great job Shad.
Our beautiful man is always busier than a one armed paper hanger as the saying goes. :) Thanks to Shad and Lynn, they keep us updated on his activities. We Billsbabes are always on Stephen watch. Can't wait to see where both Bill C. and Stephen take us this year.
A comprehensive and beautifully done recap of all things Stephen in 2012. Well done, Shad, and Lynn. I enjoyed all the articles and accompanying pictures. I was most excited about the baby announcement for Stephen and Anna, which became a twins announcement ... and the birth of their little ones. Other high points for me were: Billsbabes Fundraising for the Brentwood Theatre; fundraising for Facing the World; Stephen's directorial debut in TB's Season 5, and the announcement that he will direct Episode 1 of Season 6; the opportunity to see Stephen on the big screen via "The Barrens" DVD. It was a jam packed year for him, and you've kept us fans wonderfully in the loop with your thorough coverage. Kudos to you both!!
Excellent wrap up of all things Stephen in 2012 (I will have to go back and revisit a few events). Thanks Shad for this, the magazine articles are a treat to re- read.
2012 was a busy and changing year for Steve and Anna and thanks for keeping us all in the loop.
Very nicely done, Shad! It was an eventful year and AllStephenMoyer.com has done a remarkable job of keeping fans up-to-date and supporting Steve's charitable causes. Mant thanks to you and Lynn for all the hard work. It is much appreciated. xxoo
