So much fun, late nights, and another fab giveaway!

It's official...the ten days of excitement at the National Walking Horse Celebration have came to a close!  We had perfect weather this year and it turned out to be a wonderful show!  There has been some drama the past few years, but this year was great!  Of course, all the horses were gorgeous....especially the big winner.....(what I'd give to take a ride on one of these beauties)Photo courtesy of
AND, we went both weekends and took Miss Harper and she was also perfect!  We would get her all dressed up and carry her in and she usually ate within the first hour we were there and then went straight to sleep! ha:)  I joked with my parents saying I should just bring her in her jammies so I wouldn't have to change her. lol  
On our last night walking into the show, we decided to stop and have a little photo shoot.....hello blog material! ha:)  But I think our family pic turned out rather well...
Big cousin Madelyn was there every night we were and she was so, so good to be a 19 month old in such a small, confined location.  She is just precious...She would occasionally come up to Harper and just lay her little head on Harpers.....OH.MY.GOODNESS!!!!!  Talk about pure sweetness...but wouldn't you know that she'd move before we could get a picture.  She is such a beautiful precious little girl and we love her to death....I'm so glad our girls are so close in age and I hope they grow up and are close friends!  They are just precious.  Everytime Maddie walks in somewhere, she says, "Bopper?"  I was telling my mom the other day that it's so weird becuase it's like she knows she belongs to are sooo smart!
On another note....look what Miss Priss has starting doing the past week...
Oh my....guess I'm just going to have to suck it up and realize that she is her mommy's girl...and that she's more than likely going to be a thumb sucker!  I have really tried to give her the paci every chance I can because I know it'd be so much easier to break her from than her thumb...but oh well!  As of right now, she still does like her paci, but I'm afraid she won't once she really realizes how to suck on her thumb....but isn't it so cute? lol
Have I told you how good of a sleeper Harper is??  She eats somewhere around 6-8 every night and then wants to be laid down so she can go to sleep and she sleeps from anywhere from 6-8 the next morning.  WELL, she fell asleep Wednesday night at church, so I just brought her home and laid her down and thought I'd just let her sleep in her dress.....  haha:)  WELL, after a few minutes, I kinda heard her squirming and chirping, but I figured she was just repositioning, so I left her alone.  Then, I heard her again in a few minutes, so I thought I better go check on her and look what I found...
Ahahaha.....I laughed so hard!  And, what did I do?  Not grab her dress and console her...I ran into the kitchen and grabbed my camera...then uncovered her and consoled her! lol  Then, I got her up and put her jammies on and put her back to bed!  She cracks me up....I never knew I could love someone sooooooooooo much!!!!
Last but not least...I have to mention another fab giveaway...Bethany over at Bethany Tramel Photography is hosting a giveaway for the cutest banner you have ever seen!!!  I really, really hope I win....Harper must have one for her birthday!  I will have to order one if I don't win...too, too cute!  Hop on over and check out her super cute stuff....she is so talented!
Well, I'm off to bed....I get to sleep in tomorrow...yippee!!!  Hope everyone enjoys your extended weekend....have a blessed week!
xoxo, Kara C:

Gosh she is growing so fast! I love these updates...I haven't done a recent update on Tuff since I have been sick and with dealing with my brother-in-law's situation it's been kinda crazy around here.
