Poor Laurie - her girls have been sick so much lately so she had to take Sarah Kate to the doctor today so I kept Emily for a few hours. It was during Harper's nap time so she helped me put up my big tree. She was a great helper.
Harper woke up right before Emily left and she went in her room to help me get her and Harper was SO happy to see her. She literally sat on the floor and smiled at Emily for the next 20 minutes and watched her EVERY move.
Emily wanted them both to wear tutus and flowers. Can you see how happy little Harper looks as she looks at her big cousin. I have a feeling she will be looking up to her for many years to come.
Years before I ever got pregnant (I know this will come as a shock because I spent a lot of time storing up treasures in hopes I would one day have a baby girl) I bought a bunch of pink,green and brown ornaments when they were on sale and have been saving them. I had planned to get a little white tree for Harper's room.
Until I went to Wal-Mart and found this cute pink tree for $15. And I am in LOVE with how cute it is in her room. I may keep it up all year long.
Tomorrow I am doing the "Show Us Your Life" blog tour on Christmas trees - so please come back and post pictures of yours (present or past). I love to get ideas on trees! I have FOUR so I will get them all posted - it will be up by the morning!
And finally - I made brussel sprouts tonight which is something that would have made me gag previously but my mom made them for Thanksgiving and I'm now obsessed. And they are super easy. I posted how I made them here in case you want to fall in love with a vegetable. ha!
