Harper's Christmas

We went over to see Kelly the day before her birthday to take her a few little gifts and wish her a Happy Birthday! This cute necklace and darling purse are from her Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob!
Our trip was not entirely "Kelly-oriented" because we will use any excuse to go see Harper!!

We had so much fun watching her open her Christmas gifts that Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob sent her! This is her first time getting to open a gift and she was facinated by the bows!
She pulled so hard on this bow that she almost fell over!!
Then she decided to crawl up on the box to see if she could get a better hold of that cute paper!
With a little help from Mom, she got to see what was in the package: a darling little outfit complete with a pink parka to match and of course, matching bows for her hair!!
She showed us how she gets herself up from a sitting position...... a little "squat".......
to a standing position!!
"It's hard work and now I'm ready for lunch out with my grandparents"

It's A Wonderful Life!!!!

I just love her little dress. It's so precious what grandbabies do to grandparents :) I love when mom and dad just have to make a trip to see the kids! The picture of her looking at Bro. Steve is adorable. After I left Sunday I realized that I probably sounded so rude rushing off...I had Andrea and Alisha had all the kids rounded up for a little project Jamie was working on and I knew we had a small window to make it work! hah! At any rate, it was wonderful to see you and have a wonderful Christmas!

It's going to be long until Harper will not only be walking, but running every where. I can believe this time last year we were all sooooooo excited about Harper's arrival and oh how we knew she would be special!!! Boy howdy, she didn't disappoint, did she?!?!?! lol

Merry Christmas!!!

Judy your pictures were so cute of Harper! She is so adorable I even dreamed about her the other night. I dreamed I got to meet Kelly and Harper! ((smile))

It has been so much fun this past year getting to see Harper grow and change as I read yours,... and Kelly's blogs.

I think you sound like a wonderful mom and grandma.

Merry Christmas!

I'm with Nancy! I was going to say the same thing. Everything Aunt Linda gifts is always so cute! Merry Christmas. How blessed we are to spend the time with our wonderful families, huh? There's no worldly gift or possession that comes close to comparing to time spent with family.

That pic of her off balance with her feet up from pulling so hard on the bow is too stinkin' cute! You captured some great expressions in her earnest unwrapping event! :)
