He needs two Binky's one sippy cup and the microphone in his hand he got with his tickets from Chuck-E-Cheese.

Big brother is still picking on him every chance he gets. 
Luke is so happy and just loves his big brother.

Luke's 8 months old!

Luke is happy all the time .He love to laugh at his big brother Joshua. Luke is standing and walking along stuff. Luke likes to let go and free stand for a few seconds. I'm thinking that by the time he's 9 months old he could be walking. Luke is working on getting teeth also.

Luke is just to cute. I love this face!!

It's Official!!

Today I'm Another Year Older!!

It's about 12:10 am and I'm thinking about what to do for 
My Birthday!! 

 I never have any ideas. Why is that? I like to think that I'm fun and can come up with good ideas. I think every year I'm going to do something fun and then life happens and then my birthday is here. It's crazy. Next year it will be my goal to be ready for that next birthday.

I want to give a Big shout out to all the January birthdays. The list is very long so I don't want to miss you.

Here is Christmas Morning!

 It was quite interesting trying to figure out how we were going to start our traditions with our family.  Jeff and I grew up doing things different!

Luke and Joshua opening their stockings!

Joshua trying to dump out his goodies!
Santa left Joshua a wooden train set and a desk!
Luke was just happy to climb on all the gifts and to eat the paper!

Joshua opening up presents!

I learned that when Santa leaves you a gift all the other gifts are on the back burner for days later to open . When Joshua saw that train everything else just waited . It was quite funny. I'm so glad I wrapped his presents. Luke loved watching Joshua play with his toys and he really loved to eat the paper. Over all it was a great Christmas and it was so awesome to see my children learning about Christmas.

Thanks to our friend Kathy for the matching p.j.s for the boys they were so cute matching.
