Catching up on the last month...

It has been a LONG time since I posted a blog entry, but we have been busy. We have been out of town for about 3 weeks. We enjoyed visiting with all of the family! Hampton loved spending time with his grandparents and cousins. I have to admit, though, that it is good to be home. I look forward to decorating for Christmas (hopefully!), doing a little baking, and finishing my Christmas shopping this week. I hope my goals aren't too lofty!

We started our journeys on November 18th in Montgomery. We stayed with my parents and loved catching up with "old" friends. Hampton had a BLAST with his MawMaw and PawPaw and Uncle Gerald (aka Unka Jerl). He took his first steps on his MawMaw's birthday (Nov 19th)! He still prefers crawling, but he's OH-SO-CLOSE to walking full-time! He can walk with someone who is holding only one of his hands. His balance is getting much better. He did many fun things that week, including riding the lawn mower and feeding deer with PawPaw and meeting MawMaw at her job for lunch and getting pictures with Santa at Bass Pro Shops.

The day before Thanksgiving, we drove to North Florida to meet Clint and his family. Hampton had fun exploring his Mamaw's new house (this is his great grandmother) and playing with his cousins - Justin, Griffin, and Graysen. Of course, hanging out with his Nana and PawPaws while Mommy, Aunt Ninny and MawMaw went shopping on Black Friday was fun too!

We spent most of Saturday and ALL DAY Sunday in the car driving home. We crashed in bed that night, got up the next morning to re-pack, then we flew out to Dallas. Clint had a business trip, so Hampton and I tagged along for the ride. While Clint worked, we spent our days trying to recover and relax. But we did some fun things too - like visiting the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. It was so beautiful!

OK...stay tuned for pictures of our travels...I took a lot!

More to come,
