What I learned about my First Hog Game Day by Harper

52-41? You mean the Hogs lost?
Are mommy and daddy going to be in a bad mood all day Sunday?
Thank goodness my grandparents came by today and kissed me a bunch. They are a lot of fun - they think I'm super cute and I can't do anything wrong. They kept me while mommy and daddy had a lunch date. I never even noticed they were gone because my grandparents oohed and aahed over me so much. They are nice.
Mommy said she was a little sad to be staying home tonight and not going to the game but I think she changed her mind after it was raining and then when they lost. She made me go to bed during the first quarter but not before she did a lot of screaming and yelling and jumping around. She made me laugh a lot - I just kept staring at her because I've never seen my mom act like that. Football must be very exciting. Even more exciting than Sonic drinks or fried pies. I can't wait until my daddy takes me to a game!

Oh well - Mommy says we will beat Alabama next week. I like Alabama - that's where I got to go swimming in the ocean but Mommy says we need to beat the Crimson Tide. I was going to wear my victory Razorback dress to church tomorrow but now mommy has to find me something else to wear. I'm trying to decide whether I should be sweet at church or do a lot of crying. I guess we'll find out tomorrow! Goodnight everyone! It's about time for me to wake my mom up again! I'm hungry!

What a game! I thought about you the whole time! Good luck next week....We are Auburn fans, so anyone team that handles the tide is a friend of ours! Ha ha!!

Katie Patterson said...

Roll Tide Roll!!!! ;)

April said...

It's great...to be...a Georgia Bulldawg!!!

Sorry, couldn't help but rub it in just a bit! :-) Have a great Sunday!

Jennifer said...

Girl, you crack me up! We are so much alike it's not even funny! I had to explain to my two year old today that Mommy was not mad/screaming at her...just at her Huskers. She was looking at me like I was a nut! Sorry about the loss tonight, but I feel your pain today. At least you know Harper looked precious in her gear! Hope she's getting some use out of her "Lil Hogs Fan" sign! I need to make her one of my new updated ones! I can't say it enough--she is getting more and more beautiful by the day!

Francine said...

that game was awesome! as much as i love your blog and adore that sweet little girl of yours i gotta say GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS!!!
Sorry just had to get it out. LOL
If you guys are playing alabama next week you will be fine.. :p

Rikki said...

We have that same "smallest fan" onesie!! And the "fan since birth" and I can't remember what the other one says. I am so sad! I can't believe they lost. We were yelling quietly as to not wake the sleeping baby in the next room...which we did...a couple of times...ugh!!!

ann said...

It was a very good game and they gave them a run for it. I am still proud to be a Razorback fan!!!! Look out Alabama...

Kathy said...

I was pulling for y'all tonight! But you need to take back that comment about next week. :) Roll Tide!!

Cody Sharene said...

Too bad your guys lost! This post idea was so cute! Love the look on Harper's face in the first picture. As for 'Bama versus your guys next week, we'll be rooting for opposite teams this time around!

Bekah F. said...

That game was so intense! I was screaming at the TV the whole time. Your hogs put up a good fight, but in the end they were no match for my dawgs! GOOOOO Dawgs! Sic'em! woof woof woof!

Marie said...

Oh sweet Harper you are absolutely adorable in your outfits. Your Mama sure knows how to dress you. But you know what, honey? Trying saying "Roll Tide". See there? It rolls off the tongue. Much easier than sooooiiiee or whatever that is that your Mama has you sayin'.

Amanda said...

I thought about you tonight when Annabeth didn't even make it through the first quarter of the A&M game. You did the right thing! I was laughing about the fried pie thing. So funny!

Lynn said...

Had a bit of a different ending here...I still can't believe it, but UW BEAT USC!
These verses are so comforting. Continuing to pray!!!!!!!!!
Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Oh Harper, you are cute and smart! Fried pies are exciting, but don't compare to football (unless you eat them at a game...). I think you should cry to get all the attention and then doze off in someone's arms :)

Melissa Stover said...

that first picture is so cute!
my husband is glad he didn't go too. he told me to throw away all his razorback shirts. i said, then you won't have anything to wear. he'll change his mind.

momMYsliceoflife said...

Harper, you are so cute! My bet is that your mommy and daddy wont be able to stay upset for a minute when they see your sweet little smile!

jsiewert said...

Sorry about the game..... Next week. I thought of you today when I was looking at the Better Homes and Gardens magazine and they had a recipe for fried pies!

MissingAlabama said...

Oh Kelly, I have to disagree with you just once! Little Harper looks so beautiful in red and white and would look even more precious with an Elephant on her shirt rather than that old razorback :) Have a good weekend! ROLL TIDE!!!!

Love Being a Nonny said...

Thank You Harper for writing to us tonight! When you get to be a big girl and pick out your own clothes, we will write you and tell you what a Georgia Bulldog looks like!:)

Cindy Lou said...

Such a great blog Harper! I am so sorry that those dawgs took a bite out of your pigs...well they about ate them up!! Ha! I thought about you during the entire game!! Sorry but I was hoping for those dawgs to win!! You have a good day and do behave yourself at church!! You are to precious to cry!!

Bellismom said...

This is my first time ever posting a comment. I just wanted to say Harper is beautiful and looks so darn cute in her game gear. I am also a huge SEC fan. Arkansas is one of my more favorite teams (because their fans aren't obnoxious and rude like most of the rest of them). However, having been an Alabama fan since the day of my birth I'm going to have say ROLL TIDE! But don't worry, I will be pulling for Arkansas the rest of the season =-)

Katie said...

if it is any consolation, your Hogs had my Dawg fan of a husband sweating it out until the very end!

Baylee and Blair's page said...

That game was VERY exciting. I'm SO glad to see a THROWING game again! I think even if they aren't so great this year they will be AWESOME next year! After all, this is Petrinol's first year with JUST his team! We had to watch it on our DVR last night. The game was the same time as Baylee's pageant! You will have to come by my page to see if she won! :)


Hugs - Tiffany

Kelley said...

Harper looks super cute in her Razorback outfits! We watched the game. It was very exciting. I guess we have to move on from this game and get ready for Alabama!

Lauren said...

Harper...You are such a wonderful writer! I just love reading your post! So adorable!

Kelly...My hubs watched his 1st game w/ our son (at home) and my hubs jumped up and yelled, "Go! Go!" and my son started crying! My hubs felt SO bad! :) I'm glad Harper was laughing at you! :)

Lauren Kelly said...

Awwww, LOVE it!!! )

Livin' Lauren's Life...One Day At A Time said...

Harper looks so cute in all her Hogs gear. I'm sure she thought you were really entertaining and will want to be just like Mom in a couple years. I think you've got a Hogs fan for life! Sorry about the loss :( At least Ole Miss won!

Laura White Photography said...

Harper...Say it with me...
ROOOLLL TIDE ROLLL.

See ya on the field next week!
GO BAMA!! Probably shouldn't get out that "victory" dress for next sunday either. ;)

Raining Pearls said...

Too cute, I came across the game and thought of you :( Harper is a great blogger already!!!

Ann said...

Too cute! My Samuel did a lot of laughing at mommy and daddy yesterday too....BUT my Tarheels and Hokies won! Sorry bout your Hogs.

Robin said...

I am so sorry that Harper will be disappointed next week when Arkansas looses again...

ROLL TIDE ROLL!

HaHa!

Seriously, she just gets cuter every day! Loved the story and I am glad that she enjoyed her first Hogs game! I'm sure there will be many, many more in her future!!

Kate said...

So cute! Love life from Harper's perspective!

Jess :) said...

That is just precious, Kelly...I mean Harper!!! :) Too cute.

I'm so sorry that they lost last night. I can only imagine how sad you were. Okay, I guess I don't really have to imagine ~ I just know!

Anyway, YES the HOGS will beat Arkansas next week!

Have a marvelous Sunday! Can't wait to hear how miss Harper behaves today

Sami Kae said...

You're little girl is so precious! I was just wondering if you would mind sharing what kind of camera you use to take all of her adorable pictures?

Ashley said...

Im not much of a football watcher, and even though I live in Georgia I was hoping the Hogs would win all day just for you and your family! Next game- go Hogs!

Gretta said...

What a cute post! Sorry your team lost but it is GAME ON next weekend, Kelly! :) ROLL TIDE ROLL baby!!! PS: That will be the only week of football season that I do not hope your team wins by the way!

Rachel said...

ROLL TIDE ROLL Harper!!!! It will be a great game next week:)

Sassy and Classy Southern Mrs. said...

I love Harper's facial expression in the first picture! She's adorable! I hate that your Hogs lost, my Vols lost too but not as bad as we thought they would!

Joanna said...

She is so sweet and precious! Love the look on her face in the high chair!

Hoping y'all beat Bama too!

Rachel McPhillips said...

Harper is a little young for the smack talk about the Tide, don'tcha think? :) I may have to not read your blog next week, since I am a Tide fan. I think it'll be a good game though! :)

Browneyedgrl said...

you won't beat Alabama!!! Got to show my love for Bama!! ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erica said...

sweet harper- your mommy is misinformed about next week's game! alabama is going to win. can you say "roll tide?" :)

Alex and Jill said...

I'm so glad we have a decent QB this year - but where was our defense!??? It was a great game to watch though.

Cute post!!

Erin said...

Very cute post- Harper is just too precious! Great game last night, however, being an Alabama fan, I'm not going to wish you luck next week :)

zanesmommy said...

Lets just hope the the Hogs wore Georgia out so they are beat by ASU on Thursday! Go Devils!

Lani said...

ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!

Melissa from the Blue House said...

The Hogs lost last night, now hubby is grouchy today.

The price we pay when those dadgum Hogs LOSE....sheesh!

But as long as they beat the Aggies in a couple of weeks I guess it will be ok. :)

Courtney said...

I really thought the Hogs were gonna pull that one out! What's up with 2 SEC teams putting up so many points? They looked like Big 12 teams last night!!
I just hope your Hogs are worn out when they roll into T-town next week!! My Crimson Tide should be rested up after playing North Texas Middle School yesterday! ;-)
Harper is such a doll baby! Even if her mama makes her wear those P-I-G outfits!! ha!
Roll Tide Roll!

Jonnie said...

Cutest blog post ever!!!!!! Loved it! Super sad about our Hogs losing, but I'm super impressed that we have a passing game! Happy Sunday.

Juggling Thoughts said...

Harper is just adorable :) I absolutely love the headbands...when I have a little curly-haired daughter...she'll be rockin' the headbands too!

Any Kelly followers need a blog makeover? I'd love to work with all of you!

Too cute! She is adorable!

Rebekah said...

That was such a close game. I was on the edge of my seat! Can't wait until I have a little girl to dress in cute Bulldog outfits!

autumn23 said...

What cute post! I thought Arkansas did a great job and I think next weekend will be a good game. Rollllll Tideeee Rolll! :)

Yvonne said...

Kelly, I am SOOOO sorry your Hogs lost. I was cheering for them. Made me think about you and your precious Harper. My CATS won, but not in SEC play. They played the team I hate most on earth, University of Louisville. Hope your Hogs give Bama and run for their money and completely wear them out. We play them the next week, so if your Hogs can have them wore out and sore, that would help us out!!

Yvonne

Sheridith...Mom to Peeps said...

How funny! and cute as well... you are so cute Harper...winning game or not...you were too cute! I am an Aggie and I hardly ever get to do the victory dance these days but I sure do wish I looked that cute in a big bow!

Kudos to your mom for teaching you about "sportsmanship" early...

Melissa Miller said...

Oh my goodness this it too cute!
Sorry they lost...:(

Haley said...

Harper, you are the cutest little Razorback fan I've ever seen! But sadly you are wrong about next week. :-( I'm afraid that victory dress will still be hanging in your closet and your sweet mommy will have to find something else for you to wear to church. My 2 year old Allie (whose middle name is Harper!) would love to teach you how to say ROLL TIDE!

Laura said...

It's a shame that we dress our daughters on Sunday based on how our favorite teams perform the day before! I wouldn't let Alise wear her smocked Bama dress to church today because I'm saving it for her to wear after we win next week!! Roll Tide!!!

The Petty's said...

Kelly, I loved this format of blogging. Tell little Miss Harper to keep up the good work.

Jennifer said...

What an adorable post!! :)

Kelly said...

Aw, this is the sweetest post! Love it!!!

Allison said...

Little Miss Harper, you sure are a cute Hogs fan but I am afraid to tell you that your mommy and daddy will be doing the same crazy dances next week. Mommy needs to go ahead and find you something else to wear to church next week too. But You are the most gorgeous football fan I have ever seen:) Roll Tide!!!

Fabiola said...

I love Harper's description!!! Fabiola

HappyascanB said...

Cute Cute Cute! I so wanted to email you during the game (yes, I realize you have no clue who I am) since I'm a dawg, and I think you love football as much as I do! Y'all played great; Mallett was on fire!!!! He's a stud! Great game, though. Looks like you girls had a great day!

Tracy said...

I thought about you, too...but I can't say I'm sorry! We're Dawgs in this house! Love your blog!

sjm4him said...

Sorry about the Hogs' loss, but Harper is PRECIOUS (as usual!) Love the pic with her grandparents kissing her! :) So glad they are close and can come often. It's very hard for my parents to be over 1000 miles away from their only grandchild, my niece. Thankfully there are digi pics and e-mail! Hope Miss Harper was a good girl in the nursery today!

kimert said...

Super cute post!!! I was pulling hard for the Hogs even though I'm a former GA girl! I was equally as sad that my beloved Vols lost though.

Jenifer said...

Girl, we're ready for you!!! Bring Harper this way and we'll get her fixed up in some Crimson and houndstooth! Roll Tide! Tell Harper she'll have to keep her victory dress in the closet one more week!

James' Full House said...

War Eagle Harper. I will be pulling for the hogs next week. Beat Um....

Girl you have opened a SEC can of worms....

She is tooo cute!

3girlsmom said...

I will be pulling for the Hogs next week - probably harder than some Arkansas fans! Why?

Because I'm an Auburn grad! WAR EAGLE!!!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

I just had to stop by and say Roll Tide, in anticipation of next week's game. And since I'm now a fan by marriage, we'll be doing some whooping & hollering at our house next week. :)

Allyson said...

Oh Kelly - I wish ya'll would have won yesterday! The hubs and I were catch in the monsoon at the Auburn game yesterday! What a night it was!! I will REALLY be cheering for yall this next weekend against Alabama. I love the SEC and anyone that beats Alabama!

WAR EAGLE

Gotta LOVE the SEC!!!! Your Hogs played the heck out of that game against my DAWGS!!! GO UGA!!!! Hopefully ARKANSAS will ROLL right over BAMA!!

Harper looks adorable and so happy!

Have a blessed week!!!

hicksfamilycircus said...

Aren't Bama Fans hilarious?? Love your post. That Harper of yours is just too precious!! Here's luck to the Razorbacks next weekend.

Cindy said...

We shall see about that! ROOLLLL TIIIIDDE!

Donna said...

HI Kelly,
So sorry your Hogs lost, but Harper sure is adorable in her Hog outfits. I know you can't wait to take her to a game. By then she will be used to seeing crazy people yelling and calling the hogs. Sound like someone you know?
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Jennifer said...

Roll Tide!

Sandra said...

So sorry that your beloved team lost. Oout Tigers pulled another one out! But I'll be yelling Whooo Pig Soooeeee with you next week. We'll pull for anyone who is playing Bama!!!

War Eagle!!! Have a great week!

Rachel said...

I LOVE Harper's bow!!!

Creekmore's said...

My hubby made the long treck across the state for the game. It was a long 6 hour drive back home! In the words of my nearly 2 year old - Woo Sooie! He can't say pig yet LOL

stevensfarm said...

Love, love Harper's face in the pic! Your writings are so animated and fun! As a fellow Hog fan, where do you find all the precious outfits Harper is wearing? My hubby, daughter, and son-in-law would be in ...mmm...hog heaven!!!! So happy Harper did so well with her surgery! You have no idea how your blog brings so many smiles!!!

Lauren Thomas said...

Hi Kelly! I really hate to say this, but......GO DAWGS!!! SICK 'EM!
Ha! It was so funny, when we were watching the game I was thinking, Kelly is going to be so sad!
It's pretty funny when your thoughts start revolving around blog friends! Have a great day!

Craig and Kristy said...

afraid she might have that last part a little wrong :)

ROLL TIDE ROLL!

Jennifer and Michael said...

Harper, poor sad Harper, its okay. I'll still be your friend even though my daddy's team is going to win on Saturday. Mommy has my new Alabama cheer outfit ready to go and a new red dress for church on Sunday! Roll Tide!
Your friend, Sarah (10 months).

Amanda Kines-Phillips said...

So I couldn't help but think about you while we watched the game and when "WE" won, I was like, OOHHHHH I bet Kelly is gonna post something! LOL.

The Shavers Family said...

Harper.. you are such a cutie! I love your little Razorback onesie but I must say ROOLLL TIDE!!!

Keris said...

She is so cute! I wish I could kiss her! :)

Sonya said...

you crack me up!! What a cute post.

Ann said...

Thanks for the post Harper!!! Soon you can have YOU OWN blog!!! Soooo cute!

Katie said...

Ha ha funny and SO CUTE!

Julie said...

Harper--
You did such a great job on your post today!! What a writer!! I love your first picture in this post and then the first one in Hogs vs Dogs! You are so cute!
I was pulling for your Hogs. It was a great game to watch. I feel asleep in the 4th quarter and Bryan had to tell me who won. I'm sorry. :(

Julia said...

UUUUMMMMM...not so much!!! haha, love you girl!

Krista said...

OHHHHH i LOVE it! so fun to read what you think harper is thinking! Too cute! And that first picture of her! PRICELESS! =) Sorry the hogs lost... here in WA, the Huskies FINALLY won!!! YAY! =) Enjoy your week!
~Krista

Megan said...

Such a cute post! And I hope-hope-hope you beat Alabama next week!

Trac~ said...

Well... even though we are 2000 miles away - it was nice that we were able to watch our beloved Hogs play on ESPN at least - even though they did lose! Maybe our defense will show up by the time we play Alabama this weekend! *sigh* Harper looks as cute as ever in her Hog outfit! Love it! Have a great week and GO HOGS!! :o)

Dreams2009 said...

ahahah such a cute post! Harper is so cute in her little Hogs outfit!

Emma and Company said...

We watched the game and I thought about you and if you were jumping around and putting a show on for Harper! I bet she loved it!

Karen (KayKay) said...

Cute post. We were screaming our heads off that first quarter - not so much the last. Sure looks like a different Hog team than in past years though. Love all that offense. The defense is gonna have to step it up.

Jennifer said...

I love your blog, but I'll be screaming ROLL TIDE!!! We will be ROLLING all over those Hogs come Saturday!!!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

I love her darling little top too! she looks like a true fan.

Mommy Attorney said...

With a post like that, I've just gotta say it...


ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

Hey, at least USC lost.

Michele said...

Kelly, Harper is adorable in her Hogs attire!!!! We also are Razorback fans....we live in Texas so we get ribbed a lot but our daughter went to U of A and we absolutely feel in love w/Fayetown!! Hopefully, we will see a win next week!!!! :)
God Bless,

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

Kelly, just gotta say "GO DAWGS!!!"

:o)

kellykelley224 said...

Roll Tide!

whippetmom said...

Sorry Harper, but we have to say Roll Tide Roll! Though you do look darling in your smallest Razorback fan onesie (we have those too- but in Bama obviously!) :)

Fran said...

Is it too early to start trash talking right here on the ole blog???

GO HOGS GO!! WOOOOOOO PIG SOOIE!!!

Ashley said...

Your team is playing my team in a few short days. Roll Tide!!! But I must say Harper is the cutest Hogs fan I've ever seen. ;)

Amber said...

This is probably just about the cutest post I have ever read! Great job Kelly! I go for you Hogs all the time except for when they play Alabama! My husband is a huge Alabama fan. Sorry my friend :(. But I am only cheating this once!

Robyn said...

Hi Kelly! I totally thought about you last Saturday during the game. I had recently read a post where you said you liked the Georgia Bulldawgs except when they play Arkansas. We are Bulldawgs and bleed red and black. My husband played for UGA when we were in college so it is in our blood! Honestly, I can't believe we won but it was a pretty good game! Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and I'm not rubbing in the win at all. Just wanted to say hi and say I'll be rooting for you guys next week too!
Oh, and Harper is a doll in her SEC clothes!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Your Hogs held their own pretty good against our Dawgs. Hubs says our defense is terrible. We were at Disney World & he was in the room watching the game.
