Snowy Saturday

Welcome from snowy Arkansas! That's right, it's days away from April and it is snowing hard. In the words of Randy Jackson - "WHAT?????". ha!

Scott's parents have been here since Thursday so we have spent the last several days mostly watching Harper. :-) They have helped us with several projects around the house.
So here are some pictures we have taken of little miss the last few days.

I love the little zebra softy Harper is holding here - it matches her room
Little jungle girl - she was too busy looking at her feet to look at us
She's looking off into the distance - trying to be an aloof model :-)
Harper has this one little tuft of hair on the back of her head so I stuck a little flower barrette in it. So cute! Her closet (behind us) is like my own personal Disneyworld.
Here is our own personal sweat shop. ha! Scott has his parents helping him to make a light panel that is going to help us take even better pictures of our girl. We are turning our house into a photography studio. :-)

Feel free to continue to leave your comment to win the shoes (aren't they the cutest things????) if you haven't already! I'll announce the winner on Friday! (PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS ON YESTERDAYS POST OR THEY WON'T COUNT!)
I have some more fun give aways coming up in another week so stay tuned!

Prayer Requests:

Brittany is from AL but her water broke at 24 weeks in D.C. on a work trip. She will have to stay at the hospital in D.C. until she delivers and the baby is okay to go home (could be months). They have another child at home as well.

Little Anthony has leukemia. The nice people at cotton candy tutus (CUTE STUFF MOMS!) are raising money for his treatments. Go hear to read about how you can help (and get a cute outfit in the process!)

Maybe mother nature got the wrong memo-snow instead of spring. Crazy!! Harper is tooooo cute. Thanks for sharing.

Heather said...

CRAZY weather, huh? Here, too...

I ♥ that you are making a faux studio. I need to do that!

Katie said...

OK - my favorite picture of this post HAS to be the one with the bow on the top of her head! In that picture, she truly looks like a baby doll! I think it's the look on her face that is so priceless! :o) And, yes, I can only begin to imagine what Little Miss Harper's closet looks like. I would probably be spending most of my day in there playing dress-up! Haha! And your own personal sweat shop production...how convenient! (I love the curtains in that room...)

Rob and Amy said...

Harper is so stinking cute!!!!!!! Love the photos!!!

Always a Southern Girl said...

We are supposed to get snow here too. Can't wait til spring is finally here.

Courtney said...

We are going to get some snow too ........ YIKES. I hate it. My favorite shoes are the pale pink on green damask maryjane. The shoes are adorable. OK, I am just waiting for a tour of Harper's closet. I am dying to know what is in it !!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE little girls clothes, I am obsessed with girl clothes. I also want to know have you bought all of her clothes or got them as gifts. Where do you shop for her ??

Jenn said...

Your house looks just like my house when my parents come. My mom sitting at a sewing machine! :)
I love that monkey bow - too cute!
It's crazy that it is snowing there because it is sunny and 55 here in Cleveland. Weird!
Have fun with your in-laws!

Sheila said...

I want Harper's closet!! WOW! She is too cute and very deserving!

weirfamilyblog said...

Snow??? How nice. It has been storming here in Louisiana. Pretty day today though. That little miss gets prettier everyday!!!

Thank you for the prayer requests you post on your blog. I enjoy getting to pray "outside of my realm" of people. I am in special prayer for those mentioned today. I just visited sites and sit here crying tears of sadness, yet tears of joy for God being as good as He is.

Hope your weekend is great!!!!

Love these shoes. I wish I knew about this site months ago when there were NO cute shoes for little boys... little fat feet shoes for boys that is. I cannot believe all of the clothes in Harper's closet... whoaa baby! I love baby shoes. My favorite are the little brown ones with the elastic loop (at least for little boys). Enjoy the snow.

Jennifer said...

This weather is soooo crazy!
I am cracking up at Harper's closet!! Does she have to change clothes two or three times a day to wear everything?? Haha! That would be a dream closet for any baby girl!:)

Christa said...

Harper is one lucky girl to have a closet like that! I hope you are staying warm today!

Sara and John William's Mom said...

delee said...

Please share the light panel pattern...
I would love to have one ...

Amber said...

Oh my gosh...that closet!! I would do nothing but play dress-up all day long!!!

Becky said...

Check out that closet full of clothes for that precious little girl. She is all set! Harper is just trying to help out the economy, right?

Sarah said...

Wow that closet is packed full... I bet it's soo fun dressing her

Courtney said...

Wow, I can't believe you have snow. The weather here is pretty gloomy, but at least it is not snowing! I love the new pics of Harper. I can't believe that closet, the girl is going to have to have multiple wardrobe changes everyday. Hopefully the snow stops soon, so you girls can get back outside!

Heather said...

It's actually pretty chilly here in Houston. Her closet is stuffed! I love all the outfits that she is wearing in the pictures! Enjoy your snowy day and you look great!!!

jen said...

Harper's closet is AWESOME! It looks like a baby boutique in there! Would love more info on the light panel. Where does it go? How does it help? etc. Love photographing my kids!

Martha said...

Harper has got to be the BEST dressed baby in America. I think you may need a new addition soon to add a bigger closet!

It's 85 in Orlando today! Crazy weather!

Lisa said...

Your little sweetie gets cuter every day!

Heather said...

We don't have snow, but it is FREEZING here! WHAT?!?!? is right! I am sick of the wavering weather....I want Spring and I want it to stay!
Harper is so adorable! I love her cross onesie and her closet MUST be like Disney!!! I can't wait to see Avery Kate's zebra and polka dots bedding...and see her sweet face sleeping in her crib...won't be long now! :)

Chari said...

Yeah hopefully this is the last snow!

wow, now that is a full closet!

King J's Queen said...

That has got to be the most over-stuffed baby closet I have ever seen! What a well-appointed baby layette!

I'd love to see the instructions for making the light panel. Might want to make one myself.

Take care!

Rathi said...

That is crazy about the weather. We had tornado warnings yesterday, just ready for the nice summer weather!! Harper's bow with the monkey is too cute, where did you get it? Love her closet too, so much cuteness! Hope it warms up for ya'll soon! Have a great rest of your weekend!!

Snow White said...

Kelly,
You MUST check to see if any of the movie theaters in your area will be hosting a viewing of Dr. Laura's speech on motherhood May 5th. Her new book is out in praise of stay at home moms and it made me think of you:-) (Dr. Laura is the reason I decided to stay home 15 years ago!)
Her speech/presentation is May 5th in California, but is being broadcast at some movie theaters. Hope you go---you will love your decision to stay home even MORE after you hear Dr. Laura's words:-)
Love,
Snow White

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

With girls, the closet is always full of clothes. It's just a girl thing, I suppose!! Enjoy. It is so much fun to dress little girls. Harper looks adorable. Have fun being snowed in. We are still having rain. I'm ready to sprout duck feet. Love & blessings from NC!

nanny said...

That closet is just amazing. You must have so much fun dressing Harper up!

Dear Lord,

Please let me have a babygirl one day with sweet cheeks JUST like Harper's.

Love, Jenna :-)

Douglasfam said...

Kelly,
she is precious. I have heard of your blog from so many people who are regular followers. I have a 7wk old named HARPER! How did you choose her name? My Harper is named after my husbands college mentor Rick Harper. Hope you are doing well and enjoy your Sunday.

Sorry about the snow! It was actually fairly decent here in SD today...41 degrees, but nice and sunny. It was a great day for a Sonic DVanillaC...which made me totally think of you. Okay, everytime I go to Sonic I think of you!! There, I was honest!

Sending everyone lots of LOVE and HUGS,
Jess :)

So much sadness in the world...
Know that I'm here praying!
Revelation 22:16-17 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Jessie said...

Hey, there. This sweet mom at www.smithscooptexas.blogspot.com is looking to create a button with a picture like the one you have on your blog of Stellan. Or, like the one you had the one for "praying for Harper." She has a son with cancer and wants to create a prayer button for him, but she isn't sure where to start. Thought maybe you could help her out! thanks!

Martha in California said...

Wow! Harper's closet is amazing! She is one lucky girl.
I read about baby Spencer, very sad. I'm praying for the family.

Hollie said...

I love reading your blog. Harper's closet is WOW... You have a close second place with my 2 girls closets! (ages 4 and 17 months) And I LOVE to match them!!! So its always fun looking in each closet to see what they have the same. :)

Kim said...

Oh give us more information about the light panel. We want to know how to amke this.

Linda said...

Wow snow! I am so glad we didn't get any here. Harper looks so cute as usual. Glad you have had a nice visit with your inlaws.
Blessings,
Linda

Alyssa said...

It snowed here, too! In Illinois, in March. UGH

Jill said...

Harper just gets cuter and cuter with every picture!!!! I know this weather has been so crazy! I am ready for my flip flops to be worn full time!

Jordan said...

Girl stuff is SO much cuter than boys!! I have a precious little boy and of course love him dearly, but I secretly (not so secret anymore) long for girl just for the clothes, bows and accessories!!! :)

Jen said...

Such cuteness - how can it be bundled all into one little child? That baby is definitely increasing my cravings for another one!

Andy and Wendy Ingram said...

Praying right now for all three of these families! Harper looks so happy and content. She is beautiful! Blessings!
Wendy Ingram
