Ever since Harper was born - we really never go out to eat at night. We really don't do a lot at night. Harper goes to bed between 5 and 6 and usually she is on a major meltdown by then so it's just easier to be home. But last night Laurie and Steve called and wanted to know if we wanted to go eat. So we decided to be crazy and go for it. We went to eat at 5 so that helped.
And Harper was an angel! Probably the best she has ever been when we've been out . I was shocked. Of course she LOVES being with Emily and Sarah Kate and just watches their every move. She also loves to stare at and talk to everyone around us. She kept talking to these two older couples sitting by us. I was so proud when I heard them say "That baby is SO good!" ha!
This is her official picture! It will be fun to frame all her Santa pictures and put them around the house each year. We believe the reason of the season is Jesus and we will never make a huge deal out of Santa. But I grew up loving the idea of Santa coming to our house and leaving cookies out for him and my brother and I would go to the living room at like 4 in the morning to get a sneak peek and I want Harper to get that fun also! I just want a balance of her knowing why we celebrate and why it's more important to give than receive but also to have a little childhood fun!
After that we headed to Tar-jay to pick out a couple of Santa gifts. This is the one year we could take Harper with us so we just let her look at things and whatever got the biggest reaction is what we got. We just got her three small things and I think that's more than enough. I can't wait for Christmas and to watch her play with her toys.
She wore these bloomers today under under dress. Could they be any cuter? I'm going to be sad when I have to pack away all the Christmas outfits at the end of December.
