Well Luke had a fabulous birthday. He was happy all weekend.
He woke up to balloons everywhere, and loved playing with them. We took him to get pictures taken and he was adorable. The afternoon was spent on his cake, while he happily played. Everyone joined in to make the different balls. We let him have his own little cake, which he only ate about bite and then flicked it all over the kitchen.
Saturday all the family came over to celebrate with lunch, more cake, chocolate truffles by Christina and Wes (which he liked a lot more), and presents.
What did you think of my first cake?!
He didn’t rip them open like we hoped, but got really excited when he saw what was inside! Then all the adults played games while Luke and Alex napped. Darin, Luke and I went to watch the BYU vs U game at the McCune’s and Luke’s smile stayed permanently on his face as he played with Dallin and rolled around the room! We were sad the BYU got killed, a little rain on this happy day.
NO SHAVE NOVEMBER
A couple days before Thanksgiving we a little get together in Cookeville. Grandma, Gretchen, Steve and Cotton came for a visit. We ate lasagna to avoid over doing the turkey thing. We had to get a few shots of everyone, and learned how to play Golf (the card game) and we taught them Scum. Of course the fun of it, is the oohing and ahhing, according to Steve… Agreed!
Some of the Whitaker clan, those not in class!
Cotton was having a blast!
Grandpa invented a new baby backpack, and Aden loved it!
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we didn’t take any pictures!
OTHER LUKE MOMENTS
Oh, and OREOs!! (Christina was the culprit, you don’t give a 1 year old his own Oreo. Especially a 1 year old who doesn’t like stuff on his hands and tries to figure out how to wipe it off!…OREO EVERYWHERE)
