Happy Birthday Lukie!

My Lukie Ben is TWO! He is as sweet as ever.

We went swimming at the rec center on his birthday (Nov. 29th).

Emmie was loving it. That girl is our water bug for sure.

Luke was surprising himself with how much he could do!

He makes the best faces!

Kate made this adorable birthday sign for him.

Before we went swimming, we opened up presents. This is what Emmie wrapped and gave to him! ha! He looks very thrilled..

But then the big one came! A scooter! He was SO excited and kept saying "skateboard" at first! Gotta love his side rat tail.

The Giraffe cake we made the following Sunday. Yes, Luke loves his stuffed "Giraff--ee" that he sleeps with.

He was singing happy birthday to himself. It was so cute. He is pro at that song now. If you asked him what the day was, he would yell "MY BIRTHDAY!" He had 3 with each extended family and one with just ours. So now he still thinks we are going to his birthday party if we head out somewhere!

He was so happy opening up his presents! Thanks everyone for spoiling him. A couple of weeks before, he tripped at the park and went head first into a metal pole. Hence, the scar on his eyebrow from the 3 stitches.

The Saturday (Nov. 26th) before Luke's birthday, we got our Christmas tree. This is the earliest I've ever had a Christmas tree for the season. I love it. We had a lot of fun decorating it.

Actually the kids had the most fun putting on the decorations. Jon had fun taking pictures and I had fun sitting on the couch, drinking hot cocoa and listening to Silent Night.

A week or so before Thanksgiving, I took Em to Disney on Ice. She was in heaven with all the princesses. However, her favorite performance was the Incredibles!

We had a great time together. I am determined to keep up the mommy daughter outings!

My little bubs. He's not so little anymore! He and Em were weighed at the doctor's office yesterday. Luke was almost 31 lbs and Em is 36 lbs. He has almost caught up!!

I love these two with all my heart. We are so excited to add another one to the bunch....a little angel GIRL will join us in April!
