Matt is finally working some overtime & he left for work about 5am this morning.. So I also got up and thought I would grab some computer time. I was looking through some old pictures and thought I would post some of my favorite! I love all of her Halloween so far... but the Dalmatian (her first) was probably my favorite. I do have some pictures of her sitting on Grandpa & Grandma desk next to the dog kennel and I should probably post those.. We are trying to talk her into being a BUSH this year. Yes, a BUSH. I figured I could get her a dark green pair of sweats and sweatshirt and sew leaves (purchased at the dollar store of course) all over. Not sure she is going to agree. She really wants to be a LUMA. For those of you who play WII and have seen Super Mario Galaxy, you will understand. Although I'm not sure how I'm going to pull that one off if I can't talk her into being a BUSH....

The other night Harper was going out into the garage and happened to catch her big toe on the door. She was wearing her new sandals and she 'got her toe'. There was some blood, a lot of tears, a long melt down but Matt was able to make it all better. He is so patient and caring when it comes to things like that... When she is hurt, she wants her Daddy! He is much better at that sort of thing that I am. We got it fixed up with Jayne's 'special band aides' and off they went to look at Hot Rods at Culvers (their Friday night date). The next night Matt was looking at her toes and there was part of the nail that needed to be trimmed... As you can see by the pictures she was not very happy about it.. but they got it handled and all is well!
Mommy, look what I found!
Gotta get that ice cream cone with those Runza kids meal
Harper and I met Calvin and Susan for lunch at Runza on Saturday. It had been a long time since we had gotten together... and I really miss spending time with them. Calvin is the cutest little guy and Harper just loves him and talks about him for hours after she sees him. It really made me appreciate how special good friends are how much you miss them. Got some really good pictures of Calvin and Harper....

Harper had her first day of Preschool this year. She is going to same place as last year (T/Th morning class). She was very excited and ready to go back. We walked in and acted and though she owned the place. She walked right up to Miss Nikki and started talking (of course) and telling her about her summer and all the things she had done...(fishing, trip to Kansas City, Frank). I got ready to leave and she gave me hug, told me she loved me and said "have a good day mommy, bye". Typical Harper, glad to be there, did really care that I was leaving! Makes me kind of sad, but as least she isn't crying and throwing a fit.... When I went to pick her up all the kids were on the playground. A lot of parents where standing there watching and taking pictures.. (by that time they were all standing in line getting ready to come in). I just went inside to wait for school to be over. Mrs. Nyfol was the first one up the stairs (with the kids following her) She said to me that Harper has really grown up over the summer and did a great job. She sat still and didn't interrupt and really helped the new/younger kids. She said that she had told Harper a number of time how proud she was of her. So all in all it was good day... Was there any doubt... LOL Once I got into the classroom to get her, she was talking to one of the other teachers and when I told her it was time to go and she said she didn't want to go.. Mrs Nyhof went and over and explained to her and they are so happy she is back, but she needed to leave so the kids in the afternoon class are coming soon.. She wasn't really happy but we left and by the time we got to the car she was OK and ready to go to DD's.
Last week we went to Star City Shores for Hartland Speech Therapy (where Harper goes to speech therapy) customer appreciation night. They had rented out SCS for all of their students & their families from 8:30 - 10:00. Matt went down the big slide, but Harper wouldn't go down. She had a good time, but was very tired at the end of the evening and fell asleep in the car only about 4 blocks from SCS.
