The models for this blog do not always cooperate with me.  I'll have to rethink how much I'm paying them.

Summer Dates

Gram and Pop Pop were in town for the 4th, so we enjoyed a much needed date night.  Can I be totally boring and talk weather for a second?  It's AMAZING!  I can't believe this is West Texas in July.  I'm loving it!  We sat outside at Abilene's new winery and it was fantastic.  The perfect little breeze and refreshing drinks.  It was perfection!

A Big Girl

Every time I see pics of EC, I think she's such a big girl.  Not a baby, not a toddler . . . just my big girl.  And she reminds me of that all the time!

Best Friends

Oh how our family misses them!  EC talks about them all the time.  We are so glad they got to come and visit for a few days.  The girls picked up right where they left off and were immediately the best of friends again.

What's In a Name?

Ellis Annabeth Walker

I'd love to give an elaborate story of how we chose this name based on family history and long standing tradition.  However, the long and short of it is . . . we just liked this name.  We did lean towards choosing an "e" name, since Emme Clare already had an e name.  But other than that, we really loved the name Ellis.  It didn't take us very long to agree on that name, but the middle name was a different story.  It took us quite some time to come up with the middle name.  We tried out lots of different names with Ellis and when we looked at our short list, we had over ten names.  We kept narrowing down and finally agreed on Annabeth.  So that's our story.  We hope you love it as much as we do!
