Hip Hip Hop



We celebrated Easter early with my family, and it was literally one of the best days.
I blogged - way back when - that after my grandfather passed away, we were going to have to move my grandmother out of their house and sell their home that housed so many of childhood and even adult memories. You can check out the post H E R E of our four generations pictures before the house was going to be sold.

But I never think I actually shared that we didn't sell the house at all.
Well, we did - BUT! - my parents bought my grandparents house instead.
So now, traditions continue, but new ones will get to be made.
It was a huge part of my childhood, and I'm THRILLED that it now gets to be for Harper.
I bring it up becuase this was probably one of the first official holidays celebrated over there with my parents and Harper, so it made it even more special.

We had dinner, Easter dessert, and Harper went on her very FIRST Easter egg hunt - and let me just say - totally rocked it. We showed her a couple of times how to put her eggs in her basket and BOOM. Instant egg hunter professional.

Thelma & Louise



These two.
I'm not sure which one is Thelma, and which one is Louise.
But the older Harper is getting, the more these two are becoming best buds.

I grew up with a best friend that was older than me, and I absolutely loved it.
We had so many laughs, and she taught me how to get in trouble. :)
Not that Nora will, but I looked up to her.

When Ashley had Nora, I hoped and prayed we would have a little girl that could be best friends with her. Ashley is my absolute best friend in the world, and how sweet it would be if we had two girls that were too. So to see my prayers come to life, it's quite magical in the most precious little girl way.

The WORST Super Bowl EVER.


My heart still breaks.
Our Falcons made it to the Super Bowl.
Our Falcons were winning the Super Bowl.
And then the winning came to a stop.
And it was over.
We lost.


I'll spare the details, but our little family has been pretty pumped up about this for awhile.
And really it seemed like the whole state was.
Cody and his dad work with the Falcons quite a bit during the season, so our hearts were invested.

We had fun celebrating before hand and yelling 'RISE UP' whenever we could.
But for now, we'll dry up the tears and move on.
At least Harper didn't really care either way. :)

Sick On Christmas Should Be Illegal


Shouldn't it though?
Harper was SO sick Christmas Eve, and as her mama - I felt completely helpless.
So while all the little boys and girls were waiting on Santa to arrive, my little babe, husband, and me were up practically all night trying to sooth our sweet girl.



We found out later that it was a double ear infection, but just knew with a 103 fever, it wasn't good.
We managed to sleep a little bit that morning, but got ready for family coming over around lunch.
She tried to be a trooper, but you could see in her face how icky she felt.

We ended up opening up our family and Santa presents after everyone left, and overall, I think Harper really enjoyed her presents and the day the best she could. After a trip to the doctor the day after Christmas, we were able to spend Christmas with my family at Whitney's apartment.

Last year's Christmas was full of no sleep and newborn cries, so we're crossing our fingers that next year will be the icing on the cake Santa cookie. :)
