What goes around comes around














I hope you think this story is as funny as I do!

Last Saturday, our neighbors Tish and Brent had us over for Dinner and cocktails. Well, once Harper was all partied out, I took her home and put her down. I snuggled into my jammies, started reading an US Weekly and watching a John Mayer concert on TV. I was thoroughly enjoying my Saturday night. Bob stayed over at the neighbors for awhile and then came in to announce he and Brent were going to string lights from one of our other friendly neighbor's home to another across the street for a practical joke. UMMM, OK, if that is what you want to do with your Saturday night...fine by me...I'm staying here with some yummy blankets and I'm sure some dessert to top off the night!

Well, they did and then the next morning Bob went out to clean up his mess and commented that he didn't think our neighbor liked it that much! Oh well, we thought he was a good timer but maybe we were wrong!

So last night, Bob went to the front porch to turn off our Christmas lights on our Charlie Brown trees....at least that's what our neighbors call them. When he came back in, he mentioned that one tree's light were out and we would need to pick up some more to replace them, ok fine.

This morning, I go out side to let Moss out and THERE was the reason for the lights being out. Lovely, tacky Christmas decor strung very tasteful in our entry! I LOL'ed hysterically all by myself and wondered if any culprits were peaking out their window! I really hope you notice that in the picture that one tree is lit and the other is not!

Good timer my bootie, he is a professional....or she!




Harper Rolling Over

Harper 4 months December 16

video

Harper turned 4 months old on December 16th. Crazy how time flies. She is tons of fun and I mean TONS of fun. She weighs 14 pounds and 12 ounces! Super healthy and doc says right on track. She is a ham already, charming the pants off the ladies at daycare that's for sure. She is rolling over, following Mommy and Daddy wherever we go, likes looking at Moss, and loves when I use the suction bulb to clean out those icky boogies! I suppose it tickles.

We have finally adjusted to somewhat of a routine and loving that she is sleeping well. Even though we eat dinner with the blue hairs, fall asleep during 8:30 PM movies, and get totally excited when you wake up in the morning when it is still dark and find it's 6:15! That makes me want to kiss somebody.....but I don't with that morning breathe:{ Ok, I totally kiss Harper like crazy when I get her up but she doesn't know yet, right?

Harper meets Santa



















Harper met Santa yesterday! He was the sweetest, nicest Santa I have ever met. He commented on her precious cable knit sweater and booties and mentioned his mother use to make them handmade for children and she wouldn't charge for them. He thought Harper had a very sweet demeanor and told Bob and I. This Santa was special and I hope to see him again for the years to come. Afterward we took Harper to a local book store in Nashville and bought The Night Before Christmas, I can't wait to read it to her every year:) It was a wonderful memory and look forward to the many more in years to come.

Decorating for Christmas 09



















Moss and Harper helped Bob and I decorate the tree this year. Best helpers ever!
I am WAY excited for Christmas this year and I suppose it is insanely obvious why!

NO...I have not gone overboard on buying gifts for Harper, whatever would make you think that. I have next year and the year after that and the year after that and so on. Luckily, she will be lucky to pull the paper off a corner this year. But I will have fun opening her gifts:)

Thanksgiving 09



















Harper Elle's first Thanksgiving Dinner. I warned her not to have an entire plate of food and then have FOUR different desserts, I told her that's what would happen to her cheeks! KIDDING, that's what happened to Mommy's hips:)

The trip was so nice, Bob and I stayed at a lodge owned by family friend. We had a mini couples retreat and Nana and Poppie loved it because they had her all to themselves. Bob loved the 20+ TV's in this place and I loved the oversized bed that let me go to bed around 8:00 and wake up whenever:)

















Everyone fought over holding her of course, ummm I don't blame them do you?
The boys, Benjamin and Baylen, love her and had a lot of fun making Christmas card pictures for Nana in the leaves.



















Enjoy the pics!

Girls trip to Nashville, November 21st



















My girls came to Nashville to see Harper and we had a blast. Michelle, Jennifer, and Whit rolled in on Saturday afternoon and we basically just vegged out! They brought Harper a bunch of goodies, spoiled her with a ton of hugs and kisses, and we all caught up on each other's lives.
Kelly came over in the afternoon and made a delicious dinner and had complimentary spa treatments from Aveda! A-Ma-Zing.

I'm already missing them, it seems like there is not enough time anymore. So we made the most of it! Love ya....and come back really soon.
