Sunday Snapshot~Harry

Sunday, January 31, 2010


As cute as he is, he despises having his picture taken (that is why these are not so good. Well, that and it is too cold to go outside and take some new, good photos). He just is too busy to stop for a picture.

He'd rather be playing baseball, soccer or nerf guns...


He also really likes his Nintendo DS.


Harry is an incredibly sweet big brother. He plays hide and seek with Kate. He invited her to a "sleep-over"in his room last week when she was feeling left out because Will was at a sleep over.

Harry and Kate enjoying the fire.

He did AWESOME in the school spelling Bee! I was SO nervous that I only taped his first word. But he lasted several rounds. He made it to #16 in the whole school surpassing many 4th and 5th graders (he is in 3rd).

It was so incredibly stressful to watch the kids up there. They were all nervous and you could tell that their nerves contributed to many of the mistakes.

With his friend and co-competitor. Aren't they cute?

He went out on the word "miraculous" which kind of surprised me because he is my spiritual guy. We pray together every night. He blesses me with holy water and prays over me out loud (and I reciprocate). This week he was even thoughtful enough to pray for the giant pimple on the side of my nose:) What a sweetie!

I am just wild about Harry!

    LOL about him praying for your pimple - what a great guy! ;)

  30. What a sweet little man. How cute that he invited his little sister to a sleep over.

    I think I was almost more nervous than my son when I was watching him perform in some way or another ~ it's tough being a mom ;)


  31. Anna asked me if my forehead has always been this big? Ryan thought that I was buying tank top for my 10 yr old because it "was't big enough for me" . Maybe Harry could pray for my flaws as well, lol!

  32. Good looking son! And smart! And a great brother! Very loving family; you have gone well!

    Alyzabeth's Mommy

  33. Way to go, Harry! (on the spelling bee!) I am proud of you :)

    I have to laugh reading how sweet Harry is this morning. My own 7 year old leaned over on the breakfast table this morning where his sister was quietly eating her fruit & said to her, "we get to go to school and you DON'T" & then he turned around & walked away! So mean ;)

    Love the Sunday Snapshot - it's too COLD here to go outside & take any decent pictures!

  34. Good Job Harry!!! Your just as handsome as you are awesome!!! BTW his "co-competitor" is just GORGEOUS!!!! What a beautiful little girl!!!

  35. Way to go Harry! Just thinking about the spelling bee gives me that nervous in the pit of the my stomach feeling!

    Prayers for Pimples...he really is a love!

  36. Awe, sweet Harry! I would be very proud too! And nervous as well! It is super cold up here too! Like 2 degrees or something!!

  37. Your son Harry is such a cutie - love his smile. Great photos - especially the first one. Hope Kate's eczema and infection is better, Wendy

  38. OH, I can so see why you are just WILD about Harry! I would be too!

    He is such a handsome boy and his charm jumps right through my computer screen....he is sweet to his sister, can SPELL better than many adults I know AND he prays for pimples?
    Do you ever hire him out...even just for an hour?

    Great post. Beautiful Boy!


  39. You gotta love a kid who prays for your complexion! What a huge heart he must have!!!

  40. Congratulations Harry! Way to go!

  41. How old is he? My Kaish, who just turned 10, has been on a FIRM 'no pictures' kick lately... It is driving me batty! At least you have the baby to snap! I go crazy bothering my neighbor kids... : )

  42. Kim
