Last Sunday Matt & Harper took a one day road trip to Ainsworth & back.... Matt needed to go to Ainsworth to pick up a part for his motor and wanted to take Harper. They headed out about 6:30 Sunday morning and drove straight through to Ainsworth (about 250 miles) only stopping to get out a stretch & grab some Road Grub (as Matt & Harper would say). On the way back they stopped in Atkinson to see Uncle Scott & Aunt Marlene. Matt, Harper and Scott walked around her property looking for the wild turkey's that live there, but they had gone to the neighbors. After leaving Atkinson, they then stopped by Albion to see Albion Grandma & Grandpa. Then it was time to head home. Matt said Harper did GREAT on the road trip and didn't have a single melt down. They walked in the house about 7 that evening. I had a full day of quiet! I actually got a lot done around the house and just enjoyed being alone.! I keep telling Matt and HE needs to blog something and this would be a perfect day to Blog about... I'll try to get him to do one from his point of view!

Harper's Humor Chapter 5 page 3

Harper had just gotten out of the bathtub and her and I were in the bathroom getting her dried off. I had been sick the week prior and a digital thermometer was on the counter. Harper was looking at it, picked it up put in in her armpit and the quickly pulled it out and said "Ok, mommy, what time am I"

Harper's SPECIAL DAY out with Uncle Mitch & Aunt Brandy

On Sunday Harper got to spend a SPECIAL DAY with Uncle Mitch & Aunt Brandy. Harper got to pick where they would have lunch & and she of course picked Runza. (She loves to get a kids meal because it comes with a tiny ice cream cone). They then headed to Fire Station #8 for a tour. Brandy's dad, Red works there and was nice enough to let them come so Harper could see the Fire House. She had a great time and has mentioned something about it almost every day since then. Below are some pictures that Mitch & Brandy took and were nice enough to share them with me so I could post them. Thanks guys - I love pictures!

Fire Station pictures!

Harper Humor Chapter 5 page 2

Harper received many Valentine's Day cards in the mail. We had brought them in and told her and after dinner she could open her mail. Dinner was almost over and she looked and Matt and said. "Ok, I want to open my email now."

Harper and her cakes....

Thought I had better put a couple of pictures in of Harper and her Birthday Cakes. The top one was one that I made the week or so after her birthday. On February 7th we had a 60th Birthday Party for Grandpa Steve and the Sunday after we had family over for brunch and cake. She loved it. The top cake was one that 3 of us shared on the actual birthday. We went to Chucky Cheese after work, played many games, had pizza and then home from presents and cake. As you can see, she is wearing the Princess Dress we got her.. to bad you cannot see the sparkly shoes and we also go her. :-)

Harper's Humor Chapter 5 page 1

While sitting at the table having dinner last night - Matt and I were talking about me having February 16th off because of President's Day. Harper piped up and said "What do I get for PRESENTS day?". We tried to explain to her what President's day was, but she was not interested when she found out that presents were not involved.

Big Monkey

This morning Harper and I were on our way out the door. I was ahead of her on the stairs and I hear her say "Stop It". I turn around and and said "I didn't go anything". She said that Big Monkey was pushing her. I asked if I needed to tell Big Monkey that he needed to go to Time Out and Harper says... NO I'll just tell him to go home. Gotta love Big Monkey!
