We started the day with birthday donuts, yum, yum!! Sadly, this was my first picture of him on his birthday morning. No more pics in jammies in his room. Now that he and Charlie share a room, they wake up, go to the bathroom, get dressed and hang in their room until 7. Then they come out and play and wait for Mommy and Daddy to get breakfast and lunches ready. So, before I even saw him, it was after 7am. He's growing up so fast! But, nonetheless, we got a birthday morning pic!
And, off to school he went! That night we let him choose where he wanted to have dinner with our family. He chose Corky's--yum, yum again! So our family of 6 met Mimi, Grandpa, Aunt Mary and Uncle Kevin there for a birthday meal!
(check out my sister's face--what a goofball!)
He had a super day! All smiles! He then had a small party this weekend to continue the fun. He's all about Mario, as in Mario Kart. When we moved this summer, we discovered a box tucked away in our old attic--turns out it was our GameCube we hadn't sold. Chad and I thought it would be fun to pull out and try, and it was! However, we had no idea how quickly it would become an obsession for the boys. We've definitely had to put limits on it but L & C still talk about it non-stop. Soooo, Luke was determined to have a Mario Kart party. Chad is the creative game man, so he came up with some competitive games to play outside (we didn't play the actual Mario Kart game) and we were so thankful it didn't rain! One thing I love about Lukey is how he is an awesome encourager! He gets so excited for people and encourages them along. Just look at these photos of him cheering when his friends made a basket. . .
Our precious Lukey! What a joy you have been since you made us a Mommy and Daddy 7 years ago! You never cease to amaze us! Oh how we love your smile, your sensitivity, your amazing imagination, your creativity, your thirst for knowledge, your loyalty and so much more! We just love YOU!!! We are so thankful for how the Lord has made you and for giving you to us. We pray that you will continue to grow in Him and that we will continue to have the biggest honor of raising and loving you as you do! Happy 7th birthday, Lukey! We love you with all of our hearts!
