Luke's Birthday!

My sweet boy turned 3.  This blog post has pictures of my little boy...

On the metro headed for the botanic gardens to see a Christmas display

Halloween teeth from Granny

Deviled ghost eggs with a devil mullet!

We went swimming at the rec center the night of his birthday. It was also Claire's first time swimming. She loved it, although we didn't get her completely in the water.  She just sat in the shallow part and splashed around.

Luke was in heaven

It was a fun family day.  The kids were super excited they got to stay up late after swimming to eat cake and open up presents! Luke wanted a pirate cake.

"Wreck it Ralph" on top of the house was a big hit this year for Lukie. He also loved all his presents from Grandmas, Grandpas and cousins.  Thank you!

Kate's cute sign from last year

The day after his birthday, Luke had his first cleaning at the dentist. I was so impressed. I should post a video to show you how still he was.

Below are some random videos.  Actually this whole blog post is random.  Nothing is in order. Hopefully you can get a flavor for our daily life. Crazy, fun and out of control! 

Luke's birthday dinner...ha! hot dogs, olives and pickles.  Kate and my dad would approve!

And he was happy about it :)

A box house Emmie made for Claire!

The next few pictures are of the Bagley family.  We just LOVE them! They came to visit us a month ago. Luke had a BLAST as they brought him a DS to play with!! Here are all the boys playing their video games! 

Rita (named after my spunky sweet Grandma) is such a sweetheart

Emmie just adores her. We had a fun "girl day" where me, Emmie and Rita went to a movie and then to the store to pick out "polly pockets"

Corbin dressed up to serve the girls food in their fort.


Caleb, Rita and Corbin were so great with our kids

Taji, Chance and the boys went into DC for a day. They came back with these souvenirs:  Angry bird hats!!
Here's my crazy kiddos!  I love these guys. So glad they are my whole world.  I'm so grateful that 3 year ago at this time I was cradling my newborn Lukie. That Christmas was so special as I felt a new appreciation and love for Mary, who cradled her baby Jesus in a manger. What a sweet time to celebrate my boy's birthday each year!  And now we head for UTAH next week!  Woot woot!
