Christmas 2011

Thursday, December 22, we drove to Plainview for the night to be with my folks.... We had a great time considering we were only there for about 15 hours.

Grammy and Cam

Cameron's first Madame Alexander baby doll from Grammy and Pop!

My new robe... We were about 3 cocktails in without dinner!!! ;)

My 91.5 year old Grandaddy Doug. My dad's dad. Still lives alone and doing great!

Friday morning, we got up and went to Hereford for lunch and to see Brian's real dad, stepmom, and paternal grandparents Bubber and Grandaddy.

With Poppy, Brian's dad

Then, we drove onto Friona that afternoon to be with Brian's family and stayed through Monday. We had a wonderful time, told old stories of when Brian and his brother, Trent, were little, ate like kings, and enjoyed every last minute of Cameron's first Christmas. She slept in a pack n play down in the basement and did beautifully! Such a good girl!!

Brian's 'cockit' which is what he called his blanky when he was a baby. Cockit....blanket.... Same thing, right?!?!?!!?! ;o) He accidentally set fire to it when he was like 3 (playing with matches... Oh sure!!!) and this was all Amy could salvage!

Laying on Daddy's quilt from when he was a baby

With her Slick... Brian's stepdad.

Friday night we were invited over to Amy's best friend's house for dinner but we took no pictures. :(. Delicious meal, Melissa and Becky!!!! Thank you!!!

Christmas Eve we went to Canyon to Amy's sister's house and had another delicious meal! Thanks Beth and Ronnie! Great seeing you guys, your children, and beautiful grandchildren!

Dr. Herring hard at work! He never makes the blog so I thought this might be a prime time to get my cute husband on here! His Office Manager sent me this picture today and the caption said, 'He actually worked today!' HAHA! Love you babe.

upside down and inside out...

Cameron goes to bed like this.....

And I find her like this the next morning. She does this almost every single night. HAHA! Silly girl. I had to take the bumper pads off because I got nervous. I am sure she would have been fine, but you just never know. And, we've gotten rid of all blankets! That kind of crib-partying can make for a pretty mean mess if I were to keep giving her props to play with. :)

May I also mention she's sleeping 8 hours straight every single night as well. I haven't posted about this very exciting news yet because I was afraid I might jinx it; however, I feel fairly certain this is a set pattern and will continue seeing how she's been doing it since she was about 9 weeks old and we go for her 16 week appt on Jan 9th!!!! YAY! he loves to sleep and loves her crib! Thank you Lord!
