A First Birthday Party

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!

Crazy Harper!

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.

 Y'all, Harper is the luckiest girl ever. See this bear...yeah, her Nonnie made that. Straight up hand made Bobby the Bear!!

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.

All done!!

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!

Harper's First Year

I've been busy today loving on my sweet birthday girl. I'll have a post with pics from her first birthday later, but for now here's a recap of the best year of my life.
