"i'm fake 5- right?"

This past weekend we had 2- yes TWO- parties for our almost-5-year-old. We're at the age with Luke in preschool that he wants to party with friends, and yet the families still want to celebrate. So this year- and this year ONLY- we did 2 parties. His friends all celebrated with him at the Portland Children's Museum, and then Sunday we had a lasagna dinner feed (thanks to Costco!) with all our family. It was madness, but fun was had by all. But the best thing was something he said to me Sunday before his second party.

Luke: "Hey mom? Since yesterday was my birthday party and we celebrated my fake birthday- that means I'm fake 5- right?"

LOVE that boy.

here's some photos from the events:

his real birthday is friday- so stay tuned for his yearly interview. Click here to find out what he said last year! LUKE YEAR 4

17 months!


I hope that everyone had a great christmas and new year. I can't believe it's 2013 already. 13 is my lucky number- so I'm hoping this will be an awesome year!

Jack James is 17 months old today. I can't even stand it!! He's so big now and is such a kid now, not so much baby. When he sees me break out my phone he does this cheesy face and says "CHEESE"! It's really just too cute. He says so many words now and he's playing with his toys more- but he's still totally obsessed with balls. Especially Basketball. He has quite the arm too! Here's a few pics of him this past week- cheesy face and all!

Next up for us is Dad's birthday, Uncle Josh's birthday and then LUKE IS TURNING 5 on the 25th. I can't believe I have a 5 year old!!
