Luke turns 1!!!!

My little Luke turned one yesterday (May 1st). The last year was way to quick. I can't believe that my baby boy is already one. Luke is such a fun little boy. He is always happy and loves to laugh. He thinks his older brother is hilarious and wants to do everything that Hank is doing. He is my more mellow, easy going kid. He also loves to be outside and ride in the stroller. He started to walk a few days ago and really wants to be better at it. You can see how happy he is when he makes it a long distance before falling down. He can say Momma, Dadda, and ba-ba (bottle). Sometimes he says Nana which I am pretty sure means Grandma. 

I took a picture of Luke pretty close to his month birthdays. They are great quality but it's still fun to see how he's grown. (sorry there isn't an 11 month pic by the time I remembered he was almost a year :/ ) 

Luke's first time standing on his own. (about 11 months)

Luke's pile of presents.

Opening gifts (there was lots of help from his big brother).

Luke's little monster cake.



He didn't get to messy. He just started to rub it on his stomach and drop it on the floor. 

Outside for a little walk to enjoy the bright sunshine on his birthday. 

Combine Mickey Mouse B-day party

Since Hank's birthday and Luke's birthday are only 6 days apart we decided to have one joint party for friends. Luckily thier friends all belong to the same families. We invited everyone to the park for a Mickey Mouse party. It was a blast and are so glad that our friends could come party with us. (sorry for the lack of actually party pictures we left our camera at home and then my phone died so we were relying on Tyson's phone for pictures...)

We had Pluto's doggy water, Pete's punch and Goofy's grape juice for drinks.

There was Minnie's bowtie pasta, hot diggity dog (bacon wrapped smokies),

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse sandwiches, and Daisy's garden veggies with Donald's dip (not pictured).

Hank wanted a Toodle's B-day cake.

Some cute Mickey Mouse cupcakes. When you cut them in half there was a Mickey inside. I'm really mad I didn't get a picture because that was really hard work.

Hank blowing out the candles. He loved having his friends sing to him. (We let Luke smash a cake at home on his birthday pictures to come).

Hank turns 3!!!

Hank turned three on April 25th. I can't believe how fast he's growing up. He is such a joy to have in our family. He is super smart and loves learning new things. He loves to play outside and do anything with his dad. Fishing is quickly becoming a favorite. He has so much energy and loves that Luke is (almost) big enough to play and wrestle with him. He can make Luke laugh better than anyone and they are seriously best friends. I decided to ask Hank a list of every questions every year on his birthday. Here are his responses from this year:

Family Pictures

When we went home for Kirstin's wedding we were lucky enough to have Tyson's brother Josh take some family pictures for us. It was a beautiful fall day and the pictures turned out perfect. Thanks again Josh!

These are just a few of my favorite:
