Happy Birthday, Luke

Let's Party- 1 year old style!

Luke's ACTUAL birthday on June 12, 2013
Yesterday we had Luke's First Birthday Party at our house for my parents, sister, My in-laws and Brother in-law and his wife. We all had a great time eating and fellow-shipping with each other but most of all celebrating BABY LUKE and his 1st year of life.
The boys relaxed and played with the dogs in the morning hours while all the ladies went over to Dan and Jackie's house to get Mary Kay make-overs with Leeanna. This was lots of fun to get a "new-do" and be able to show it off for the party and while family was in town.
For lunch we ordered pizza and was able to fellowship together by playing "Mexican Train" dominoes. This was always a pleasure since Chris and his brother John were playing and incorporating their "dry" sense of humor into the game. All in all, everyone had a great time.
After playtime, and nap time for Luke, it was time for PRESENTS! Luke got LOTS AND LOTS of gifts from Gigi and Grandpa and Gigi Shirley and Poppy too. Even the Aunts and Uncles had gifts for him. This little boy "CLEANED" up in the gift department. These are just SOME of the ones he got:

Luke's SPREAD of gifts BEFORE he opened them!

His John Deer tractor from Gigi Jackie and Grandpa!

His Ride-On Fire Truck from Gigi Shirley and Poppy!

His Basketball Goal from Gigi Shirley and Poppy!
 Luke's ENTIRE Spread of gifts... HE is ONE HAPPY BOY!
We had a good ol' fashioned BBQ for dinner with Hamburgers, Brats and Hot Dogs. Luke liked everything but the hamburger, which is odd since meat is his favorite food! After the main course we broke into the Birthday Cookie Cake and ICE CREAM. Oddly enough, Luke didn't really care for either of these but I guess that is good!

Chris was the GRILL MASTER for this party and he did an AMAZING JOB! Thanks Honey!
It was a wonderful day and I still am getting used to having a TODDLER in my house and not a little baby! He has really grown up these past 2-3 months and I know this will only increase in the near future!
I love you Luke and I cannot wait for the next 30 birthdays!

God is good... ALL the time!
