Elliot's First Halloween!

We are not big on Halloween, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to get Elliot dressed up in a cute costume.  We thought it would be weird to "trick or treat" with her since it would just be a shameless attempt to show her off, and we would have to be the ones asking for candy, so we just got her dressed up and took pictures.  The outfit was really hot and it shed really bad, so we have white fuzzies everywhere!  Including all in her mouth since she likes to eat everything!  Here are some pictures from Elliot's first Halloween!

This is her natural hair style, it isn't part of a costume!  We call it the "Aftershock" since it looks like she just got electrocuted...

Elliot as a sweet bunny!

She even had a little tail

What's up Doc?

Sleepy bunny....

The costume was a little big as you can see it fit Mommy (kind of)!  So we might have a little bunny again next year...

Picture Catch Up - Amarillo Trip

Here are some pictures from our Amarillo trip.  Elliot got plenty of attention and was the life of the party!

Elliot taking it all in!

Aunt Missa came and visited the weekend before we left town.

No Visual Evidence

Last weekend we made our much anticipated trip to Amarillo and Elliot did awesome!  We left Thursday morning and she slept for 3 hours until we woke her up to feed her, then she went back to sleep for the rest of the trip.  And on Sunday when we came home, it was the exact same.  I feared a screaming baby for long stretches between towns, but, thankfully, it didn't happen.  We had a lot of fun seeing friends and family and we would have loved to show you some pictures, however, in our haste to hit the road, we left our camera behind...  So you will just have to take our word that we went as we have no visual evidence to support it!

On a side note, I couldn't be prouder of my siblings, especially when they team up on a project.  Ryan took Ashlan's engagement pictures (which you can see here.) last weekend and did an awesome job (like always).  It is still hard for me to believe that my little sister is getting married...  I feel so old!  I love you guys!

Elliot is getting big!  She is fitting into her 3 month outfits, she is starting to "talk" and her neck is getting stronger so she is holding her head up more.  The last one makes her look like a bobble head and she reminds me of David Gray when he sings.  That is a very obscure reference so I included a video of him singing (since we don't have anything else to show you!).

And here is my favorite David Gray song (Lately) just for fun (lots of bobble head action around the 3:00 minute mark), it is long so I don't blame you if you don't stick with it...
