Since Harlie and Cooper's birthdays are the 25th and 26th, we decided to do a combo party. It ended up being a lot bigger than we originally intended. But, we like to party. And Tom loves to barbeque, so there you go. He borrowed a friend's smoker, he took a day off from work, put on his overalls, and started smoking. It always amazes me how much time it takes to barbeque.
Evidently, smoking requires a lot of sitting and watching the temperature. Oh, and drinking beer and smoking smelly, disgusting cigars. And wearing horrid overalls.
You don't want to know what my laundry room smelled like the next day. My Febreeze plug-in was no match, I can tell you that.
Here's Cole and Murphy in our driveway.
I loved these cupcakes! They were so cute! Tom's sister, Amanda, made the cupcakes and cakes and we loved them! And they were yummy, too! The big cake was strawberry - my favorite!
Of course Harlie wouldn't touch hers.
But Cooper dug right in.
It's not a party until someone loses their clothes.
Harlie loved the keyboard that her night nurse, Dawn, gave her.
Harlie's team - her nurses, Jennifer, Brandy, Dawn and me!
This was a guest's dinner plate. We had to photograph it.
So, now Harlie is THREE and Cooper is ONE. So, so hard to believe. Cooper's first year just flew by. I feel like he was a baby for such a short period of time. He still cuddles, so that's a bonus.
And Harlie. Three!!! Wow. She's had a huge life crammed into three short years. And she's just getting started! She amazes me every day. What a lucky family we are!
