Ten Months

The birthday girl and I had a little one-on-one photo session (daddy was gone for the night teaching), so not a lot of variety, but we sure had fun! Winter hat & skating tee were a birthday gift from G+G Gorder, just in time for the holidays!

Went over to Grandpa's for a little belated birthday pizza party! Pollyanna was supposed to join us, but as holiday air travel goes - she was a bit delayed. Great Grandma Dody was there, along with Grandma Annie! A good time was had by all, Happy Birthday Grandpa Clark!
Happy ten month birthday sweet baby Harper!

Dad was a great help with after-dinner clean up
some late night modeling of new christmas jammies!
We had such a fun weekend in Fairmont! Drove up Friday night with Grandpa Clark & Grandma Annie...played the day away on Saturday & had a yummy dinner with Dave, Holly
Eliza who drove up from Mankato to join in on the fun! Sunday we had a lazy breakfast & then hit the road about noon (thankfully avoiding some nasty weather that blew in last night).
Such a fun weekend! It's always great to see Great Grandpa Ray & Great Grandma Shan, thanks for the wonderful hospitality :)

Gobble Gobble

We had a fun & busy 1st Thanksgiving as a family this year! We started off at Grandpa & Grandma Kawa's for the afternoon, then trotted over to the Gorder's for round 2! Such a fun day, as always we were reminded of how very thankful we are for such a wonderful family! The only shot of me & Harper from the day (atleast it's half of my face?)
Playing peek-a-boo with Great, Great Grandma Renna!

Everyone wanted to hold Harper...and they did :)

Great Grandma Irene & Harper...

Auntie Jill & Harper....

Uncle BJ & Harper

Grandpa Tom & Harper...

Daddy & Harper napping at the Gorders...
After Mike & I had Thanksgiving dinner number two at the Gorders (!) Harper finally enjoyed her feast of Peas & Rice - yummy!

Finally, at the end of the night, Grandma Annie & Harper relaxing together...

Then, we kissed Harper goodbye (she enjoyed her first overnight in Grandpa & Grandma's new house!)...and went bowling! A new Thanksgiving night tradition in the making I think!
Hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving too!
