Harper's Good Things

Remember yesterday? When I hit you over the head with a club and told you to go vote? And sort of implied that I would be back with a more substantive post later in the day?

Sorry about that.

Despite having a great day subbing, I was still exhausted from the early wake up call, and I fell asleep a little after 9. 9! I had to look on the Internet today to see who had been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars.

Thank goodness for the Internet.

So today I thought I would tell you about some of the things Harper has been enjoying lately. She can drive me crazy, but makes me laugh so much.

Over the weekend, my dad was in town with a friend/colleague to attend the Wisconsin-Ohio State game. After we derailed the Friday plans with Harper's allergic reaction, they stopped by for some extra visiting time before flying out on Sunday.

Somehow Harper managed to rope two grown men, one of whom wasn't even related to her, into a game of Candyland.

And she didn't even pout when she lost. Though she had a difficult time audibly congratulating Grandpa.

Then they played a few rounds of a newly invented game (thanks Matt) called Sock Fight!

Playing Sock Fight! is easy. You just whap each other with socks until someone gets tired, or gets poked in the eye.

Also, the Packers won on Sunday.

As if the weekend weren't exciting enough, Monday brought a package, for no reason at all, from Aunt Meaghan. Aunt Meaghan had been to Disney World and sent Harper a stuffed Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger. Harper tore the paper off the animals and exclaimed, "I've always wanted these friends!"

Harper has sort of rediscovered her dress-up box lately. Her favorite outfit? The cowboy princess. Yesterday she ran around in this costume for quite some time, pulling imaginary alphabet letters out of her purse (a little too much Super Why, I guess) and yelling, "Cowboy Princess to the rescue!"

Looking at that picture I ask you. . . Is there any problem that couldn't be solved by a determined Cowboy Princess? I think not.

Is there anything cuter than two big grown men playing Candyland with a little girl? No there is not.

Oh, wait: a determined cowboy princess is cuter.

Love the cowboy princess. She's a creative little girl.

That girls has SO much personality, I bet there is never a dull moment. I love to hear her stories!
