I'll try

Okay, Robin and Shannon...I've updated the blog! I was going to give up on it, but I've decided to give it another try. Because I haven't updated in 6 months, this is a mixed bag of pictures. Here is Harper on Halloween... Harper LOVES to cook and she likes to look the part. I very rarely get to cook on my own unless it's during naptime.

Harper, and her best friends, Eve and Mae are taking ballet together. They're really cute in their leotards, or as Eve calls them, littletards.
Harper's also taking gymnastics at a real gym this year. In the past, we've gone to a little gym with little equipment, but we're trying something new. The new place is the real deal with big equipment and the wonderful smell of feet. I'm not sure how good she is going to be, but who cares. She's having fun.

She wore the same dress for the first day of school as she did last year, which made it fun to compare the pictures.
Okay, we'll that's the last couple of months in a nutshell. Maybe I'll be able to say on top of things this time.

Don't fall out of your seat, but there are finally some updated pictures on the blog. These are all pictures that have been taken by my parents this spring, but since I'm at their house right now it's what I had access too. I'll update pictures from Easter, etc when I get home.

This is Harper and G.G. (my maternal grandmother) kissing each other.

This is Harper and Boop (my paternal grandfather) feeding the birds at his house.

Harper and my dad smelling herbs.

I just posted a few days ago about how Virginia hadn't seen real snow since we moved here. Well, we finally got some. Here is a picture from last night of Tucker and Harper riding a boogie board in our street.This is a picture of half of her snow outfit. I'm sure she felt uncomfortable. She had on footie pajamas, sweatpants over that, an old scarf of mine, her hat, and her snow boots. To finish the outfit off, we added her coat and a raincoat on top of that. She was still freezing if you can believe that.

Harper wasn't a fan of laying in the snow. Here is video of her attempt at a snow angel.

Last week was a sad week. Chris' dad died on Sunday and we headed to Alabama to be with his family. While there were so many sad spots during the week, there were a few bright ones. Harper rarely gets to see her cousins, and while we missed Jack, the girls had a great time together. Harper had never taken a bath with anyone and now that we're home her baths are boring.

It was sweet to see the Harper, Margaret, and Campbell crawl up in Chris' lap to watch a movie. He was sitting in Papa's chair, so I guess they were accustomed cuddling there.

Snow in Virginia

I thought that when we moved to Virginia we would see REAL snow. So far, we've lived through 3 winters with hardly any snow. This year the snow has dusted the ground twice and we've had to run out in our pajamas before it stops. I can't believe that these are the only snow pictures we have this year.
