cheers to 2012

We've had a very merry (and busy) holiday season with lots of visits from family and friends.  We have one more trip to take this weekend so Gray can meet his great grandma in Baton Rouge, LA.  Then back home to start our 2012.  I can't believe 2011 is already over- the year our sweet baby Gray was born! 
Christmas morning- he loved that bow!

Cheers to 2012!  I'll toast all of you tomorrow night when I'm drinking my champagne in our hotel room ( with a sleeping baby- I guess we won't be getting too loud this NYE! ).
ps:  happy 7 month birthday Gray!

six month photo shoot

While we were in San Francisco &  Napa, my sister was nice enough to do a quick photo shoot for us.  She did such an awesome job- I think she needs to quit being an accountant and start doing this all the time!
Here is Mr. Gray at 6 months:

a west coast Thanksgiving

Our trip to California was a success!  We had only some mild problems at the airport (word of advice: infants need a boarding pass even if the ticketing people tell you they don't) and my expired drivers license I never noticed (oops! It only expired about 5 months ago- no biggie).  Gray did great on the plane- slept most of the time, cried a little bit, but fortunately he made friends with the people behind us so I don't think they minded the crying!  
He got to ride in his stroller all around Whitney's neighborhood, play with his cousin Given, check out the great views, play in the park with other kids, drive across the Golden Gate Bridge twice, and eat out at some delish San Fran restaurants.  In Napa Gray did a little wine tasting and even posed for pictures in the vines!  We celebrated Thanksgiving in Napa at Brooke and Randy's house and watched the very sad Aggie game (we won't talk about that, but he did represent with his Aggie shirt that day).
The flight home he was pretty much asleep the whole time.  We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
Unfortunately, I was so busy with the baby I didn't have time to take a lot of pictures.  In fact I only got two:
he's ready to go!

the dads and their strollers

Can't wait to see the California crew back in Texas for Christmas!
p.s. I'm really dreading going to the DMV to renew my drivers license.  ughh... I think I'll put it off for a while longer.

birthday boys!

Yesterday my two boys celebrated their birthdays.  Jake turned 30 and Gray turned 1/2 a year old!  We had a wild party- Gray was in bed by 6:30 pm and Jake and I watched some shows on our DVR.  We are a cay-razy!  We were supposed to go to dinner but I caught a cold and so we've postponed it.  Anyway, happy birthday to my favorite boys!

I can't believe Gray is already 6 months old- it really does go by fast.  I think I need to start planning his 1st birthday party already!
