Luke played the last few games of the basketball season and ended the year with a medal. This was really a new experience for most of the boys on the team and they all spent a lot of the time trying to remember not to travel, and taking shots at a basket that seemed impossibly high. Luke was disappointed that he didn't ever make a basket, but I still think he was glad he had the chance to play.
No particular significance, just makes me happy
The first big storm of the year and the kids were obsessed
Sundays at Grandmas are always a great time,
Even when you have to sit in the tub to eat your Fun Dip
Luke absolutely loves school and we love all that he is learning
While we were in Mexico, the grandmas made sure everyone was entertained
We all just love Penelope like she was our own
This is how you know your kids really, really want a new dog....every time we go into Old Navy the run over to greet the mascot dog and beg for me to take pictures of them with their puppy. They have a solid plan, it does pull at my heart strings, but sorry kids, we're still not ready for a new dog.
We were so lucky to be with Brycen this year to celebrate his birthday. As soon as he woke up Luke and Ruby were ready to help him open presents, and we all loved having birthday breakfast together. I had to have gum surgery later that day so our celebrations were cut a little short, but Taylor took Brycen out and they made sure to eat plenty of sushi for the occasion.
Oh the gum surgery....I had to have grafts with tissue taken from the roof of my mouth, and the entire process has been rough. Luckily I was out for the actual procedure and spent the next few days sleeping and trying to ice my mouth. Tim took such good care of me and even woke me up in the middle of the night to make sure I stayed on schedule with my medication. Luke and Ruby were so concerned about me. The funny thing is that I don't remember these pictures being taken, but I do remember the kids checking on me and making sure to give me plenty of loves.
The love of the Lego table is still going strong
Luke has been looking forward to Drake's birthday party all month and loved that it was at a place to build and play with Legos. There were some last minute cancellations so Ruby got invited which was so exciting for her. They both loved the party and had so much fun building with friends.
No matter the age, it is still a little tricky to play
After so many busy days, a lazy Sunday was totally necessary
