Tab’s Football Birthday Party

Last year, Marla had our family over for a little football-themed birthday party for Tab.
Marla always out does herself on parties.  I love being a party guest at her house.

This year she asked us and the Shulls to come over for a little party in honor of Tab.  This year’s theme-FOOTBALL.  Because Tab is a big fan and in Marla’s words, “I have a LOT of football decorations”.

We arrived to this…
An added touch to her front door just for the party.

Appetizers are my favorite kind of food so this was my kind of food table.

 Marla is from Arkansas.  I think she said this was her son’s helmet when he was little.

 Every kid had a bag of party favors…those were a HIT!

And because no party is complete without photo props.

This boy came to party!  🙂

He’s all about this and even begged to keep them on yesterday.  I obliged, but don’t worry-last night they had to be removed.

Gary came out for the party wearing Tab’s old college football jersey!

 These two are always down for a celebration.

M and G have a fabulous theater room.  The kiddos all wanted to go up and watch a movie, so the grown-ups ate in silence!  WAHOO!  After their movie, it was the kiddos turn for food.

This girl said that she’ll take all the spicy dip.  haha!  #soulsister

Oh my goodness-what a crew!

 The one picture that proves we were at the party too.  ha!
Thank you, M and G, for a fabulous night!  You guys sure know how to throw a party!  🙂

Happy Tuesday!

    1. I love that we've celebrated Tab's birthday for a week straight. 2. Give me all the spicy candied jalapeno dip. 3. I should do an entire post on the bug strip. 4. Marla's house looked FABULOUS! 5. My kids are still wearing their tattoos (and it's been over 48 hours now). 6. So happy we were included because we had the BEST time! I love being a part of Slaughter celebrations!
