Friday Favorites-BOWEN IS 8!

How was your THANKSGIVING?  I hope you had a great day with your people.  We had a nice Thanksgiving lunch at Marla’s and then we vegged out the rest of the day.  It was way quieter than I was expecting but it was great nonetheless.  Like all Fridays, I’m teaming up with Andrea for FRIDAY FAVORITES!  Today is a big day in our house! There’s no Black Friday shopping going on around here.  We’re too busy celebrating BOWEN TURNING EIGHT!

Oh my heart!  Baby Bowen went from this cute, squishy toddler to…

this tall, quick-witted, sports-loving kid!

Just last night I said that I felt like I was forgetting something but I could not think of what it might be.  Bowen immediately yelled, “KEEEVVVVIIINNNNN!!!!”.
He’s got jokes.

Bowen has the ability to get along with everyone and he manages to do it so well.  From two sisters to an older brother, he keeps the peace like no other.

These are a few of his FAVORITE things…the Oklahoma State Cowboys, football in the backyard, the Kansas City Chiefs, meatballs, and a BIG breakfast.  If you’ve been following along with his favorite teams over the last few years you might notice he always has a handful of picks but the teams doing the best get the most recognition.  I can’t blame him for that!

Bowen Hency Slaughter, we love you so big, kid.  I hope you have the happiest day today and I can’t wait to see what this year of being EIGHT-YEARS-OLD has in store!  So thankful I have a front row seat on your adventure!  Happy, Happy Birthday B!

Since there’s no school we have one big day of celebrations!  I’m popping off now to get the party started!  Have a great weekend and I’ll see you Monday!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    There aren't enough words. I love that kid like he's my own. I cannot believe he's 8 years old today. God is already using him in mighty ways, and I am so thankful I get a front row seat to watch him grow.
