Christmas 2011

This Christmas was even more special for us since it was Sawyer's first Christmas. We did a lot of traveling and took her to a lot of new places with a lot of new people and she was such a trooper! We actually had 6 different Christmas celebrations...Sawyer got quite spoiled!



Our Christmas started on the 22nd with our little family Christmas at home.  Sawyer bought her daddy a pink bb gun so she can go hunting with him whenever she is ready!


Lori was quite the Scrooge...


We left that night to go to Yoakum. We did Christmas with Barry's parents and sisters on the 23rd...and of course these two!


It was so fun to watch them open gifts and want to play with each of them right then and there.


Sawyer slept through pretty much everything...


I can just picture the three of them playing together next Christmas though!  We spent most of Christmas Eve at Grandma & Raymond's house.


Barry's cousin Liz had a baby boy 8 days after Sawyer was born - she is quite out numbered on this side of the family!


Barrett & Sawyer snoozing with their grandmas...


Sawyer slept through most of this day as well...


We spent early Christmas morning at Granny's house.


We were finally able to get a picture of Grandma & Grandpa with all their grandkids...


We then drove to Dripping Springs to spend a few hours at my parents' house.


And Sawyer was still sleeping...


Then we headed to San Antonio to have Christmas with the rest of my family at Wita's house.


I just love the little girls in their fancy Christmas dresses!!



Sawyer also got to meet her cousins from Arkansas for the first time.


Brooke painted this for Sawyer's room...it is sooo perfect...I LOVE it!


And, Christmas wouldn't be complete without a Fernandez family photo session...




A few years ago, or 10, my sisters and I (I helped with one page, so I am giving myself some credit) started a Christmas scrapbook for my parents, starting with my first Christmas.  I was about 4 weeks old at my first Christmas, I'm looking forward to comparing pictures every year since my birthday and Sawyer's are only one day apart.

1983...picture of a picture so not that great!

I can't quite figure out who Sawyer looks like yet, a lot of people say Barry, but we definitely have the same crazy old man hair!

Even though it is exhausting traveling and trying to fit everything in, we feel so blessed to have so much family to spend the Holidays with!
