December was a big month for Bart and Olivia because they both turned 30!
Because Anson is so little they told themselves they wanted low key 30th birthday celebrations but, I've got to say, we had so much fun for both of them!
First, we celebrated Olivia with a Medieval Times party.
She had a party there when she was 10 and it was a fantastic 20 year reunion if you ask me.
My kids had soooo much fun that they can't stop talking about it and both have asked for their next birthday to be there.
There were glitter tattoos
Light up swords and wands from Uncle Matt Matt
A group picture with a falcon...which you really can't see
Lots of delicious food
Cheering the Black and White Knight to a victory
And so much fun good ol family fun!
Ty, Dylan, Mom and I also met Olivia and Anson on her actual birthday for a little celebratory lunch.
Then we walked across the street to see the big Christmas tree in Klyde Warren Park
For Bart's birthday, Olivia was a little sneaky and planned a small surprise dinner for him at Barter. I think he was mostly surprised and very excited and thankful for the celebration.
It was fun having friends and family together to celebrate Bart.
Funny story about Ben's Captain America sweater.
It is kind of a theme at our family gatherings that every single gift that Ben gets is his absolute favorite gift he has ever received. He is so excited about every gift and everyone knows he will immediately tear off the tag, rip up the receipt and declare to use it/wear it every day.
It happens every time.
Ben is so sweet about it he tells me that he is just so thankful that anyone would spend time and money to pick out something specifically for him so he wants to make sure he shows his appreciation.
Well....Bart and Olivia and Matt and Sandy were at lunch a week or so before we celebrated our family Christmas and they decided to get him a gag gift to see how he reacted because they knew he would just go over the top with how he liked it.
And this Captain America sweater was that gift.
It was funny, Olivia maybe couldn't breathe from laughing, Ben maybe was excited and confused at the same time and it was definitely the perfect thing to wear to Bart's party :)
Happy 30th Birthday Bart & Olivia!
You will love your 30s, they are my best decade yet :)
