Recently our girls were invited to a birthday party at the store Libby Lu, to have "makeovers." It was with great trepidation that I let them attend. It seemed to me that this was an event way beyond their years and I don't want to foster unreasonable concern with their appearance at such young ages. But, they had a good time and don't seem to be permanently scarred. Not to mention, the party took place on a Wednesday afternoon so it became a good opportunity to talk to them about not letting our appearance be a distraction to others at church when I made them take their hair down and wash their faces before leaving for Wednesday night!

This is the first time any of our kids has had a "real" birthday party... and many more to come, I'm sure. We invited all the girls from Faithie's class at school, 3 friends from church, a neighbor, and Apple :) We had fun outdoor activities planned (like an inflatable water slide borrowed from a neighbor and water balloons, etc.), but of course it rained ALL DAY. Thanks to Mack's quick thinking, I made a late night run to Wal-Mart the night before and bought supplies to make a craft, so we did that and other traditional birthday party games. I think all the girls had fun, especially Faithie of course. And I was too busy to take any more pictures than this!!
