As much as my sisters and my husband love me, I think

Singing Happy Birthday.
This smash cake was a mess. I made 3 before I finally gave up and
stuck with this last one. I tried a "baby friendly" one first. No good.
Then, I tried cool whip icing. Then, I just used a box mix and store frosting.
When her party was 2 1/2 hours away, I just decided that this one was good enough.
It seems like she didn't care because it was sugar!
Trying to show her there was cake beneath the icing.
And 100% sure she loves icing and waving to all her
fans singing and clapping for her.
Grayson getting some cake.
Harper's admirers. Quinlan and Tristan both enjoyed taking some swipes of icing.
Taking her to get cleaned up in the water.
Playing in the water table and getting the icing cleaned off.
Sweet friend Avinley playing in the water.
I asked Katharine where the water had gone because there was none left in
the tub. She explained that Avinley had dumped it all down her and it was
now residing in her very full diaper.
Tristan, Grayson, Lydia
Playing Cornhole by walking on the boards and putting them directly into the hole.
Poor Lydia wanted to really play and those silly boys wouldn't let her.
Cheesing it up with her friend, Kinsley
Harper and Lexi
Cousins "getting" each other. So cute!
She got $1 for being 1.
Taylor and Carleigh
After the party, they got Cody's bow and arrows and shot down all the balloons.
But after all that work, a little crazy seems about right.
It was such a fun party. Harper had a great time. She loved hanging out with all the people her size. And it was nice to visit with friends and family and be excited to have made it 1 year!
Happy Birthday sweet Harper girl!
