celebratePosted: January 21, 2013
It’s Luke’s 5th birthday! Tuesday is the official big day, but a Tuesday is no day for a party so we celebrated this weekend with our family & had a roaring good time.
There are some things I’m good at & some things that I can only just pull off decently, and cake decorating definitely falls into the latter category. It looked a lot better in concept. But the birthday boy took a swipe & proclaimed his cake delicious, which is all a mama can hope for.
I’ve recently started handing the camera to the kiddos & letting them click away. I usually end up with 142 pictures of the floor, but this one that Cole took of Luke & me is a great one, isn’t it? We were waiting for everyone to arrive; the house was clean, the food set out, and we were spending a few minutes just enjoying nothing but each other.
And then it was chaos. 4 boys ages 4-15 somehow seem like a herd of elephants, but louder & messier. And lots of fun. Someone always brings silly string & the grown ups take cover inside while the kids run & laugh & have the best time ever.
Legos, legos, legos was what Luke said he wanted & he got lots. He didn’t even want to open the rest of his presents before digging into those boxes.
Oh my dear sweet Luke. I don’t know what you wished before blowing out those candles, but my wish for you is simple: stay happy ♥
