Luke's 3rd Birthday

I can't believe that it has been three years since I had Luke...the time has gone by so quickly! He went from being the most mellow baby to being a CRAZY 3 year old in the blink of an eye!
For Luke's birthday, we went to Chuck E. Cheese. This was rather brave, considering the wonderful experience the last time we went. I won't go into it right now (too long of a story), but let's just say there was throw-up, weird people, and bad service involved. Needless to say, we received a free family pass to go back and experience the greatness of Chuck E. Cheese again. It wasn't quite as bad this time...but I should say, the weird people are still there. I could stay all night and just people-watch...amazing!
Luke had a great time though! He especially loved Chuck E. Cheese (who I find quite creepy). He actually kissed him on the nose...hopefully he doesn't get Hepatitis or some crazy illness.
Grandma Judy came to celebrate with us and after a couple of hours of fun we headed home to play with Luke's new toys.
Happy Birthday, Luke!! I sure love this little guy!

First Day of School 2010

I have decided it is about time I updated our blog...considering it has been almost 2 years since my last post! Now that I have figured out our camera (we bought 2 years ago), I will hopefully be posting on a more regular basis! This is a good way for my parents who are serving in the New York New York South mission to keep up to date on the happenings of our family.

School started on the 26th of July for us...big bummer, considering that we got out on the 2nd of July. Kate and Sam hardly had a summer. We tried to make it as fun as possible by getting Seven Peaks passes for the family. We were able to go 5 times this summer and it was money well spent!

Our first day of school went well. Both girls have fantastic teachers...which we know makes all the difference in the world! We are very grateful for happy, fun and loving teachers!

Our Family Christmas Pictures

We finally had our pictures taken as a family! I am so happy with how they turned out....THANK YOU Jason! You never know how things will go with three little ones. It was a cold day, but we managed to get some smiles (and runny noses)! I can't figure out how to get them all the same size...I've tried and tried and I have given up.
We are so grateful to Jason for taking some time out to take these...you are so great!
While I am at it, I have to write down the funny thing that happened the other night. Matt was out of town and I had just finished teaching piano. Needless to say, it was a crazy night. Kids were running around screaming (all in fun) and I had just told the girls to change their clothes so we could go out to get some dinner. For some weird reason, when my kids change out of their clothes, they start running around and screaming (I don't know where they get that from)! During all of the commotion, the doorbell rang. Without thinking, Kate and Sam opened the door...and when realizing that they were not dressed...they ran away screaming (again). I got to the door to find a not too amused police officer standing there. I kept apologizing for the girls behavior...and then he said he actually had a reason for being there...someone had phoned in a call from our number. Just then (no joke), Luke comes toddling around the corner holding a phone. Sure enough, he had dialed 911 (along with a sequence of numbers). I was so embarrassed...but now I can laugh at it! Officer friendly (as I like to call him), told me that they had been listening in on the call and heard all of the commotion so they came to check it out. What a crazy night!

Little Haunts!

Last week we went with Em, Hayley and Max to Little Haunts at This is the Place State Park. What a great deal! The kids absolutely loved it....they had tons of crafts, a petting zoo, pony rides, 2 train rides, and a candy canon. We even saw 2 snakes...very exciting!

St.George and Luke's 1st Birthday!

What a fun couple of weeks! Matt had to work in St. George for a couple of days and my parent's had the condo the same week....so we all went together! We had a fantastic time doing the usual...swimming and eating out. We had such a great time with my parents. They are both amazing people, and so much fun to be around. We probably drove them crazy after a week together...but we sure had a blast!

It just so happened that Luke had his first birthday while we were in St. George. He loved eating his own cupcake (he actually had 3)....and the girls had a great time, too! When we got home, we had a big family birthday party at Becky's house for Luke and Benj. Of course, Becky made her awesome cakes...and she even made a cute little one for Luke. He loved it!

I am so grateful for Luke and the joy he has brought to our family. He is such a happy little mellow guy. He hardly cries...even when he is sick or hurt. Luke always has a smile on his face and a little love for anyone who picks him up. I think after having two "Daddy's girls" I actually have a "Mommy's boy". What a cutie!

Luke's Slideshow

Since Luke's 1st birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought I should probably do a slideshow of his first year! What a cutie he is....we absolutely adore him. He is our little mellow man...and he always has a smile on his face. What a joy!
