A Playdate, A Shower, and A Bath

Today's playdate was also a small baby shower for Buby's mom and little sister on the way. All the running around yesterday that led to such a special day was for pink and green plates, Bebe's colors. It was all worth it though, I was happy with the way the table came out and even the Gerbera Daisies were the perfect color pink. Blue House Mom, Barefoot Princess's mom and I all think alike, not only were all the gifts for Bebe wrapped in the same pink and green, but they all had pink polkadots as well.

As the girls arrived, the dress-up immediately began, so poor Buby arrived to a house full of princesses. They spent lots of time playing, jumping, and trying to share (although Lilypad Princess had some issues with that today) until hunger got the best of everyone and it was time to eat.

After all the food was done, it was time for the kids to create their own gifts for Bebe. Each one received a new, white onsie and a tube of fabric paint. Things went downhill quickly from there. Buby stuck to his one tube of blue, made some nice lines, took one look at the girls and quickly ran away from the ensuing mess.

Lilypad Princess, Barefoot Princess, and Munchkinetta quickly learned how much fun sharing the paint could be when you started mixing colors, especially with your hands.

This "shower" quickly turned into a joint bath for Lilypad Princess and Munchkinetta after they decided to take the paint to their bellies as well as the onsies. Fabric paint apparently doesn't wash off of skin very easily though, so both girls still have multi-colored bellies.

Here are the final products for Bebe.

We had THE BEST time today. Thank you girls soooo much for the sweet party and your friendship! And for all of your running around yesterday. And the food. You're right.. pink & green are Bebe's colors, and you all chose the most beautiful shade of everything. Pink gerberas are my flower, too, so it was perfect! I can't wait to see Bebe wear these crazy little onesies. I'll make sure each of the girls sees her in them. I hope you get all the paint off. You were one brave chick letting 4 two-year-olds freestyle paint in your kitchen.

I love your table...the colors are yummy. How lucky the children are to have such creative Moms who really let them experience it all! I hope they will be painting together for many years to come.
How lucky is Bebe to have such a colorful wardrobe made with such love. Wish I were with you, Nana

You are a wonderful hostess. The table was perfect, from the pink to the green to the gorgeous Gerberas. Well done. And the paint...oh my word. What can I say? You are sooooo brave to do it and I know the kids had a blast. Thank you! And thanks for letting G use your bathtub. It was the first playdate that required a bath. I'm sure it won't be the last, though. Thanks, again, for a terrific day!
