A reason to celebrate!

With all the chaos going on after sweet Hannah's injury, I wanted to make sure to mention something wonderful we celebrated this past weekend-my baby is one year old! It is sad to see him growing so fast, but wonderful to see him entering a new phase in life-toddlerhood! The girls helped decorate our house with streamers, a happy birthday banner, and lots of balloons! We started off the celebration with a pizza meal and some of Luke's favorite crackers..

Then it was time to open some gifts! He loved his Elmo doll-it talks and laughs!

And he got a little bit distracted by the balloons while opening the rest of his gifts!

Finally, on to the cake!

I figured a #1 was quite fitting! After all, it's the only birthday you can have this kind of cake, right? Well...unless you were turning 11 and put two of them together. But that's a few years off! Luke enjoyed the cake, as you can see. As a matter of fact, he had 3 servings-plus a tiny bit of ice cream. A little bit of heaven on earth for my little guy.

Happy birthday little bugger! We all love you!


  1. Happy Birthday, Luke,
    You are too cute! Grama sure misses you all. Happy turkey, I love you all.
    hope this was enought kisses to go around
