i love halloween. i love hearing kids laugh through the streets. i love candy. i love going door to door meeting neighbors. i love dressing up. i love it all. it was really fun to take harper trick or treating tonight. she was sold at the first house because she got a tootsie pop. done and done. she ate that yummy goodness for 2/3rds of our trick or treating escapade. and when i say 'eatting' i really mean eat a little, rub a little in her hair, eat a little, wipe a little on her shirt, eat a little and then drool a lot. and we went to a pre-party that was sheer wild madness. but awesome. think 15 little kids in costumes...enough said. here is some video proof that we had the cutest little bee in town (side note: harper is watching herself in the mirror). and there is a clip of the fun pre-party. hope you had a fun one!!

we like...we like to party.

Benjamin came to visit!!

Harper's cousin came to visit!! Dan, Abby, and Benjamin packed up and flew from South Carolina to hang out with us for a weekend. It was so fun to watch Harper and Benjamin play. They might not be excited about this video in like 16 years, but they had fun splashing together in the bath. So fun having them here. It's amazing how far away South Carolina feels since they left. Miss you guys!!

harper gets baptized!

Harper got baptized over the weekend. It was a sweet day to see so many of our friends and family stand with us in prayer for her. And to hear her say 'amen' at the end of the prayer. can't.get.enough.of her.

Big surprise that she loved being on stage in front of everyone ;-)

Thanks Nanna & Papaw for the sweet cross for her big day!

we continue to be amazed at the ott household. harper is talking up a storm. she repeats everything (note to your language). she also is singing all the time. no need for the radio in our car! i had to video her saying 'elephant'. it is my fave and since her vocab keeps changing, she will probably be able to say it right soon. she is turning into a sweet little nuturing girl right in front of our eyes. and JUST in time. we are due with #2 in march. we find out on thursday if harp is going to have a sister or a brother. we'll keep you updated. in the meantime...
