Harper's birthday was Saturday, and it could not have been a better day for a first birthday party! It was important to Neal and me to keep this party simple, more about Harper's first year and less about us as seems to be the status quo these days. However, I had a few small projects in mind to make the day special for our little birthday girl. Thank goodness for Pinterest, am I right, people?!
Here is Nonnie and Daddy helping Harper get ready for her guests to arrive!
Harper was a trooper while we opened gifts. It's hard to keep a one year old interested in opening presents. But she got lots of great stuff.
This is Harper's new look these days. It's hysterical, because she knows what she's doing; right after this look comes a big laugh, like "Fooled you, not really mad!"
Cake Time! Yellow Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate frosting. Mmmmm...Harper was a big fan.
Here's a little video of the birthday girl.
It was a great party and a special weekend with lots of family (more on that later...). I can't believe that a year has already gone by, but I'm excited about all of the new stuff ahead in year two!
