Campbell's Christmas

Since my parents have been going back and forth to Idaho, we has our Christmas over on the coast with the Grandparents. My parents came, along with my brother Matt and his family and other extended family.

Bailey was sick with a cold all week, which I ended up getting, then Trent, then my parents. We did not get to visit G&G Davis because we did not want them getting sick, so we stayed at the ranch with my mom's parents.

Bailey also has a few accidents- rocking to hard on the rocking chair and tipping over and hitting her head on the tile, jumping on the couch then falling off into a table and getting a bloody nose. Then after we got home, she was getting out of the car and fell and her face hit the curb- Ouch!

Over all, we had a great time. Bailey still doesn't understand Santa and presents. She would open a present and want to play with it right away, so we opened presents with her all throughout the day until we got most of them opened. We still have three presents that she did not want to open so we decided to give them to her for her birthday in Feb. Here are a few pics of the trip

Christmas Lights

Every year we go down Chritmas Tree lane on VanNess to look at the beautiful lights. A few years ago we discovered a new area (Near Peach and Nees) in Clovis. We have gone the last few years and walked through the subdivision full of fun lights and displays.

There is a horse drawn carraige, people giving out hot chocolate, a house that sprays snow all over (I believe it is soap ) and one year another house brought in real snow and put all over their yeard...and they always have Santa.

We have gone a few times this year already because Bailey loves the pretty lights and plan on going a few more times. We are probably going to walk it on Saturday evening if anyone wants to join us!

They bought a house

My parents finally found a house that is perfect for them....and they got it. The other 2 houses that they liked and puts bids on in November had issues and would take a lot longer to go through, so they cancelled their bids and went back to Idaho this week and found a great house. It is vacant and has never been lived in. They are also paying cash, and hope to close at the end of the week!!!! They are thinking that they will be moving their furniture in next week already.

The grass and shrubs are dead because the house has been vacant

This house is 3200 sq ft.
4 bedrooms- each with their own walk in closet and bathroom attached!
It has a huge bonus room above the garage
Has a library AND an office
Has granite in the kitchen
mostly hardwood floors
and a great view of the mountains

They are not too keen on the color and plan on painting it soon after they move in, but other than that it is just what they wanted.

Red Ants

This afternoon I took my parent's dog, Molly out for a walk in the golf course behind our apartments(we are watching Molly while my parents went back in Idaho for the week) Bailey loves going to the golf course and running in the grass. Today she got tired and laid down on the grass. Trent went to pick her up and saw that she had laid right in an ants nest and they were swarming on her head. She has tangly hair in back and they were getting stuck in it. As I tried to pull them out, they got on me and were biting me, so I can only imagine a whole swarm in my hair. We ran home and stuck her in the shower. After 3 shampoos and combing through with a comb, we got them out. She was crying and saying "mommy, hurt" and was grabbing at her hair, which just broke my heart as I was trying to kill them and get them all out. She eventually calmed down, but the evidence is still there. She has red bite marks all over her arms, back and neck- and I'm sure underneath her hair.

She's a tough chick and has now forgotten all about it!
