July was full of visitors! We were so thrilled to have family and a good friend in town to meet sweet baby Carter! Anna Kate was certainly glad to have a little extra attention as well. :)
Great Granddaddy and Great Grandma Strickland were the first to visit. They could not get enough of the kiddos! It was so nice to have them here.
Next to arrive were Aunt Pam, Uncle Hank, Kevin and Brittany from Dallas. I was so bad about taking pictures! I just got a few of Pam. She is so thoughtful. She threw a "welcome" party for Carter, and even got AK a pink "big sister" cupcake! A few days later Grandmama and Papa arrived! We were so happy they were able to make the trip! They spoiled AK as usual and started Carter out as well. :) And finally Courtney was able to come visit toward the end of the month! I was so happy to see her and have her here. We missed Bobby, Isabelle, and Emma so much. I felt like I kept Courtney busy the whole time. She was such a fabulous help with the kids.
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
