Home Sweet Home

Well we are back home in Texas. We had a GREAT trip to Arkansas. Ella had plenty of time to get to know her family and be pampered and spoiled :0) We are glad to be back home and to be a family again...Daddy missed us pretty bad! Ella finally warmed up to her Pops and Papa Bo! For some reason, she was scared of 2 of the people that love her the most! By the end of the trip, they were buddies. She will miss her grandpas very much!
So now we're back at home. THANKFULLY Ella is sleeping through the night (which she did not do on our trip) and she is into everything. I'm about to have to redecorate the house to a more baby friendly decor. So far she has discovered she can pull books off of the book shelf, open cabinets to find all kids of stuff, and pull stuff off of the end tables. We've had few catasrophes and broken objects but that is ok! We've spent our first days at home unpacking, playing in our pjs, and going to the pool. Yesterday, she stood up for a good 30 seconds too! Once she realizes that she can do it, she is going to take us all! 
This is Ella's new trick...snorting! I'm so proud! It is the cutest thing ever :0) She crinkles up her nose and snorts. She usually does it just to be silly, riding in the car, or while she's eating. 
Mommy's summer break is about to come to an end but I have enjoyed watching all of her milestones everyday over the summer. As if we weren't already, we're pretty attached! This little lady melts my heart everyday. I'm not sure who will cry more on the first day of school when our free days of playing, spending all of our time together, staying our pjs, lounging at the pool, napping, and shopping will come to an end for a short while. Thank goodness for holiday breaks :0)

Summer Fun in Arkansas

The rest of the pics from our trip so far...

See you soon!

Concert at Gully Park

Look at this fun friend!

Groovin to the music!

Happy 4th of July

We hope everyone had a happy 4th. This was Ella's first 4th of July and we had tons of fun. She partied until midnight (which we paid for the next couple of days)! We had food, family, more food, fun, homemade ice cream and a fabulous fireworks show...compliments of cousin Patrick and cousin Blake.

This was Ella's priceless face watching the fireworks. She looked amazed and confused all at the same time :0)

Out and about

At the hair place...After momma got her hair done, we went to a fun store that had lots of toys for me to play with. When it was time to leave, I screamed and cried because I was having so much fun!
I found a cool hat and a nifty little chair that was just my size...
I LOVED this groovy girls pony until it neighed at me!
Ooooo baby dolls! Ella dug to the very bottom of all of the cute baby dolls and checked out each one very carefully :0)

Goin to Granny's

Well, we got here on Tuesday of last week. On our first day back in Arkansas, we went to see Granny and Grandpa! We played with toys and ate lunch and then we went to Uncle David and Aunt Tesha's house to see Jonah, Kenzie, Grammy, and Pops! It was good to see everyone...
