L I L L Y!

Today while Lilly napped and Luke was at school, I actually crafted!!! Yay me. Lilly has had these letters hanging in her room over her crib for some time now. I had them all white with pink flowers on them, which was cute but kinda boring. I kept telling myself that one of these days I would spice them up. Finally, they are spicy. So I thought I would share my excitement.

Back Into Our Routine

We are starting to get back in the routine of school once again. At the end of the first week, the Dad's got together and decided they would treat the boys to an afternoon matinee. The Clone Wars. Was it really for the little boys? I'll let you decide. But the topic of conversation at our house for a week was STAR WARS. It is so a guy thing. Then after the movie a couple of the boys, Hayden and Blake, came over and played the night away. Hayden spent the night, but Blake had to go home. Maybe next time.
Over the weekend, when we had moment to ourselves, we were listening to some Christian music through the satellite. And Luke took Lilly and started to dance with her. She loved it. Here is the dip, which caused Lilly to just cackle. Just one of those unplanned spontaneous Luke ideas, that he is famous around our house for. I'm glad I had the camera handy. Love it.

First day of school

Yesterday was the first day back to school for Luke. He is in Mrs. Cruse and Mrs. Smith's class this year. The teachers share a class room. Hayden is in his class so he is happy about that. Here he is in front of the new van.

Wahoo what a fun party. We celebrated early on Luke's "Gotcha Day". We just figured that it would be easier to have a party before school started. Plus Gotcha days are special too. We had a X-games/sk8r party. So everyone brought their scooter, roller blades, skate boards, or bikes and they all had a blast. In fact I don't have a great picture of all the kids because I couldn't hardly keep them in the pavillion long enough. Our guests were Selah, Bryson, & Charis Aberle, Joseph & Emma Shaner, Blake Tash, Tyler Cox, Cael Yenzer, Thomas Doughtery, Elizabeth & Isaiah Kingery, Isaac Hibbard, Hayden Sommer and Aaron Skiles. Then their were some siblings there too. I think that it was one of Luke's favorite party's. Although we had a great time, one if the little girls that came with her brother, had an accident and broke her arm in two places. She was on her scooter and fell. Oh I hate that. I felt so bad. Hayden's mom is a nurse and was a huge help with everything. Other than that it was a lot of fun.

Family getaway

Travis had a company picnic at Celebration City a couple of weekends ago. We decided at the last second that we would go up at spend the night before and do some outlet shopping in the morning before the park opened. Since it was on a whim, really we didn't take into consideration the heat. It was so hot that day. We would duck in to any place that had air but it felt as though the air conditioning wasn't keeping up. But we made the best of it and had a good time, spending quality family time.

Lilly didn't enjoy the chair very much!
Look at Luke's sweaty head. He is in the tea cup.
