Our Daughter's Name...

Carey and I had decided on the name Trinity before we even got pregnant! Trinity honors our Heavenly Father who is the only one who could create this precious miracle growing inside of me...
Kaylynn...Kay is my momma's middle name and Lynn is Carey and my dad's middle name and Carey's mom's name is LINda (and yes there are MANY other Lynn's in my family and also another Kay!) We wanted to truly honor our earthly moms and dad and also our Savior!

What an amazing day! Thank you Lord for blessing us with a daughter! A huge thank you goes out to momma, daddy and maw for helping us get ready for this party! And thank you to all who came to our special day! We love you! Trinity is so blessed to have you all in her life!
