This weekend, we celebrated Harper's third birthday! I know I will continue to say this every year, but I really can't believe how fast time flies. We had a really long week with both girls being very sick, so it was such a relief for them to wake up feeling better by Sunday. Their health & happiness is all that matters, I was thanking God to have both by the end of the weekend!
Harper asked for a princess party, she wanted lots of tutus & a sparkly wand. So I decided to gather up a few of her favorite skirts from her closet & use them as inspiration for colors & decorations. The party was small, we had family & a few of her friends come over to play dress up. Harper asked for a pink cake with sprinkles & she was so excited for the big number 3 sparkler wand on top! I made these strawberry sandwich cookies, vanilla bean cupcakes & some raspberry sorbet punch. Lots of sweets, but nothing could be as sweet as the birthday girl!! She had the best day ever & probably changed her tutu ten times throughout the day.
Along with all of Harper's fun tutus & dresses for the girls to play with, we also got some glitter glue pens & poms for them to make their own crowns. I just cut them out of a roll of kraft paper, it was so cute watching Harper use glitter pens for the first time, although I will definitely be picking sparkles out of my carpet for years to come.
We sang Happy Birthday, she made her wish & blew out her candle. And then immediately sneezed on her cake. So we all ate cupcakes instead. I love this picture & her sweet little smile!!
After birthday cake, Harper & her friend Veronica put on their Ana & Elsa Frozen dresses so they could have a little dance party. Maybe the cutest thing ever!
The weather was so beautiful, so we got to hang outside for the rest of the afternoon. Harper got a big girl bike for her birthday so she had lots of fun riding it & ringing the bell. Brandon was definitely the most proud dad in the world teaching her to ride it. We can't wait to continue her birthday celebration this week with our trip to Disney!! Happy almost third birthday Harper Eve!
