HBDTY, Again.

Harper's final birthday celebration with a few of her friends at What About Cupcakes:

She takes her birthday very seriously. 
*Notice the long gold chain she insisted on wearing. 

Each kiddo got a cupcake, juice, and a party favor. Simple and sweet. 

I forgot to take a group picture...this one will have to do.

Happy birthday, Harper Lane. You are worth celebrating every day.

Time Flies

If I had a magical power, it would be to slow down time. My newborn somehow turned 2 years old this past weekend, and I can hardly handle it. I want this season to last forever. I will be that mom still rocking her when she is 32. Is that weird?

In my mind, she looks like this. 

In reality, she looks like this...the prettiest girl I know.

Harper loved her cow cupcakes. She is obsessed with cows.

We spent the last few days with my family at Lakeway, celebrating Harper's 2nd birthday and Krissy's 23rd birthday, eating great food and eating up sunshine. I love restful getaways...the time is good for my soul and water is good for my ever increasing belly and swelling ankles.

Don't mind her ghost face. I'm on the offense when it comes to wrinkles.

Harper could swim 12 hours out of the day.

 It might be time for dance class.

Good times and great memories.

Two of a Kind

We had a great time celebrating my 2 favorite people this weekend at the Murphy's, Lane and Harper Lane. I love that Father's Day and Harper's birthday are so close together...presents and cake seem to go on for weeks.

Harper made her daddy a special mug. She was really into painting for approximately 3.5 minutes of the hour long process.
I'm old news when it comes to these two.

Such a fun guy and an even more amazing dad. Harper is a lucky gal.

Harper loved her ladybug cake but was scared to eat the ladybugs. I'm glad she understands that we never eat bugs.

Grandmommy tells great stories. I'm so thankful Harper knows both of Lane's grandmothers...both are beautiful, classy, and strong women. I pray she follows suit. 

Harper is wearing a special dress made for her by cute!

Love to both of my loves. You make my life rich and full and sweet.

Cool Summer Nights

Dusk has always been my favorite time of day. I am loving these Summer evenings with my family...the whole crew.
