girl loves the abc's

harper sings the abc's all day. really. all day. she wakes up singing them, she sings it when she is laying in her bed trying to go to sleep for her nap. she sings it while she is eating dinner. and most songs even morph into the abc's. last night she put on my vest, picked up her shakers and of course sang the abc's. she loves letters too. i'm hoping that she is gonna have her momma's love for reading because of it.

our snowman

so remember that snowman i was telling you about? well, harper must have a REAL talent for building because she defied gravity with our snowman.

this was our snowman when we went to bed...yes, it is an ARC with nothing supporting the head.

and here it was when we woke up in the morning.

we are THANKFUL that the sun is shining today. maybe our driveway will finally melt. hope your weekend is sunny and warm-ish as well.

snow day. snow day.

i guess i should say snow days! harper's school is closed tomorrow (even though it snowed 4 days ago!!!). just when i had big plans to get some stuff done. fun watching the world go by through this little girl's eyes.

we did some sledding.

we built a snowman (that defied gravity...more later).

and had so much fun making snow angels.
