Harper’s 1st Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated Harpers birthday. It was just a small family get together at our house, and it ended up being a ton of fun. I took 334 pictures, so brace yourselves for photo overload.

The first thing I did when I got up Sunday morning was put together his cupcakes in a jar. I found a cool recipe for rainbow cupcakes, and decided I’d give them a try. They were excellent, by the way. Never mind the fact that those look like bowls of finger paint. That was the beginning of the best tasting cupcakes, ever.

Then I finished and hung my homemade Happy Birthday banner. Simple, but cute.

After that, Tony and I spent hours prepping the food for dinner as well as cleaning the house and all that other crap you have to do before people come over for a party. Harper must have known that we were going to be partying because he decided to take a nap, and at 3pm when people started arriving he was still snoozing. He woke up around 3:30 though, and we slapped a party hat on him and he was ready to go! (He actually hated the party hats, but after approximately 20 pictures something made him forget it was on his head just long enough for me to get a cute grin out of him.)

He was fascinated by the balloons.

He really enjoyed this yellow one.

Lea picked a red one.

After all the balloon fun, I decided I wanted another picture of him with his party hat on. 40 pictures or so later, I got a cute one.

And then there were some group photos.

Opening presents came next, and Harper kind of enjoyed that part… for about 2 minutes.

Finally, after opening his presents, Harper got his first cupcake.
