it happened. harper lu turned 2! it seemed like just last week i was putting the finishing touches on her first birthday cake. how time flies! over the year, harper's silly and bright personality has really lit up. so it seemed fitting to make this year's birthday party sprinkle-themed. and as i learned the hard way, sprinkles tend to get e v e r y w h e r e, which is also very fitting of harper's personality :)
for the party we invited over a few of her best buds. i only wish we had more room in our little 'ole flat and could invite every single friend we know. but unfortunately, we had to keep it small. but even with just a few bodies, they were loud and wild and awesome! they're almost all the same size and look like little mirrored images of themselves running around the flat chasing each other. one of harper's dearest friends is george and they are a hoot to watch. he yells harper lu. she yells georgie. and many hugs ensue.
***our invitation promised a sugar-high. chocolate-dipped oreos. chocolate-dipped pretzels. white chocolate popcorn. and straight-up sugar sticks. yeah, we stick to our promises around the matheny house***
***we had high hopes that this lunch would help balance out all the chocolate. but the kids just ended up filling their trays with popcorn and other chocolatey goods instead.***
***oh georgie. we sure love you and your cute little accent.***
***daddy took the day off work, and i think that was harper's favorite part of the whole day!***
***cupcake decorating played out much cleaner in my head. haha. i'm going to be finding sprinkles around the house for the next month!***
happy birthday, doll. we love you so so much!
and if you want to re-live her first birthday with me, here you go!
