Family, Football and Faith

We had a busy but wonderful weekend full of family, football and faith.  

Scott's parents came in town Friday afternoon.  We cooked out hamburgers and just had a quiet night at home.  Saturday my parents came over mid morning and we all headed downtown to eat.  Then we took our parents to our new children's museum which is amazing.

The girls had a great time running around and exploring! 

Sweet Will Holden worked a nap in while we were there.  I managed to get all my family in razorback red and then I wore brown.  Not sure why.  I think that was a foreshadowing to how awful the game ended up being. 

We came home so we could watch the Razorback game (which I'm going to try and refrain from talking about.  You can probably just imagine my sadness.)  I made us a tailgate themed taco bar.  I have all these razorback dishes that I don't use very often so it was fun to get them all out.

I also had a lot of fun plastic/paper goods from Uniontown that I used.  I had salsa, guacamole and a black bean dip I found on Boomama's blog.  It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good! And of course we had to have Razorback cookies (see above - how cute are they?)

Here is the link to the recipe.  You are going to want to make this. 

The reason our family was all in town was that Harper got baptized on Sunday.  It was such a special day! 

I'm going to do a separate post tomorrow about Harper's baptism because it's one of those days that you just want to remember and I want Harper to go back and read all about it as she grows.  

And after church, this sweet girl Makenzie asked Harper to be her Future Miss in the local high school pageant.  Harper was her sister's future miss last year and had the best time.  Basically she gets to dress up and wave and curtsy and carry a flower out to the contestant.  She thought it was the greatest thing.  I thought it was so cute and creative how Makenzie asked her! 

And after church we went to Harper's favorite restaurant, Chuy's and had a big lunch before everyone left town.  Our waiter asked if it was somebody's birthday and Harper said "NO - I got baptized!!!" Harper declared it "the happiest day of my whole life".  
And it ranked right up there for me too!
