Sleepover, Make-Up, Sunday, AND a Chick-Fil-A Birthday

I was one of those super early Christmas decorators this year.  Don’t hate.  🙂  hahaha!  It just worked out that way with Tab’s football schedule.  This past weekend I was so thankful it was already finished!  On Friday night, we made a fire, turned on all the pretty twinkling lights, and had a sleepover in the living room beside the Christmas tree.

We had a fun day running some errands.  We met some friends for lunch and then had some friends come over for dinner/playing.  Before our friends got there Ebby Lee put some make-up on.  She actually did a pretty good job.  A little later, I noticed the Bowen and Ebby Lee were really quiet.  I guess she talked him into playing “make-up”.  hahaha!  He was so proud!

This is…”close your eyes, Bowen”.

Sunday morning was CHILLY and WET!!  We got bundled up for church.

 And..Ebby Lee and I attended a super cute Baby Doll Picnic birthday party!

We celebrated someone’s birthday a little early yesterday!!  Bowen’s actual birthday is on Thanksgiving this year.  Our plan is to celebrate a bit with family, but I invited a few friends to Chick-Fil-A yesterday to party too.  It was super small and laid back.  Perfect for the third kid, right??  He loved it!

He got some cool toys, BIG BOY UNDERWEAR, and fun snacks!

Can I just tell you that after lunch we went back to our house and Bowen told me he needed to potty on the potty.  He’s NEVER said that before.  I took him and he WENT!!  Then I tried putting his diaper back on and he wasn’t having it.  After about five minutes of him being completely naked (he kept saying his underwear was “too scary”.  I have NO clue what he was talking about, but I was super scared of putting him in underwear too!!  hahaha!), he finally agreed to put his diaper on!  Whew!  I definitely don’t think he’s ready for that just yet, but we’re on our way!

Sweet boys!!  Nixon, Smith, and Bowen…Easiest party (if you can call it that) ever!  We had some Mickey Mouse plates, Chick-Fil-A kid’s meals, and party favors!

One of Bowen’s little friends, Baker, was there.  As I was uploading pictures to my computer I accidentally erased the picture of Baker having his first sip of apple juice!!  I seriously screamed, “NOOO!”.  And…the other picture of Baker had his mom in mid-sentence talking, so I knew she would have preferred me NOT use that one.  🙂

 And…Miss Presley was also in attendance.  🙂  I clearly did a HORRIBLE job at pictures!

We had ice cream for dessert and B was in heaven!

Bowen had a FABULOUS lunch hanging with all his favorite people!

Hope you guys had a great weekend as well!

    Happy Birthday Bowen!!!!! And for the record, that is my type of party. Please tell me you didn't send out invitations, but rather just a text that said something like "Let's meet at Chick-Fil-A." If so, I'm totally copying your party idea next year. 🙂

    That sounds like an easy, but great party for Bowen! I think I need to rethink Xavier's party in a couple of weeks 🙂
    And I have all of my trees and decor up as well! It is just so warm and cozy coming into the house with the trees lit!
