Our little Happy turned 1 on the 14th & we had an absolutely wonderful day.
|Harper girl showing she's one, sitting in the rocking chair I had as a child, & wearing a beautiful Baby Gap dress I got at a garage sale for $1-- my idea of a perfect trifecta.|
We woke up, went to church, Harper screamed her head off in the nursery (that part was not wonderful), came home & had a lovely party with good friends, my gram, & Aunt Sandra.
The only problem with having the party immediately after church was Harper was completely exhausted, so while we had pizza, Harper girl snoozed away.
Eventually she woke up & really enjoyed herself. She LOVED her cake & played with all of her presents just as soon as Emerson opened them.
I made Harper's cake & bear print cupcakes, & was pretty pleased with how they turned out. Aside from our usual, homemade decorations, I decorated our mantle & china cabinet in the dining room with bears, bear books, & the boxed set of Winnie The Pooh books we gave Harper.
We gave Harper a "Harper sized" doll & I knitted it an accompanying doll blanket that matches the blanket I knitted her before she was born (pictured above).
It was a beautiful day to celebrate our happy Harper girl & we are certainly blessed to call her ours!
