Surprise!

Yesterday we got a wonderful surprise!! Memaw, Grandpa, Luke and I were at Walmart when Uncle Bubba called (he lives in Biloxi, for those of you who don't know). He was talking to Grandpa and I heard Grandpa ask him where he was and what he was doing. Luke and I walked on to the Christmas section to see if we could find any deals. Memaw joined us a few minutes later and was talking to Uncle Bubba. After they hung up, I asked what he wanted. She said he had dropped off Holly to do some shopping and he was driving around with the boys. A few minutes later, the phone rang (Grandpa's phone..which Memaw had from talking to Uncle Bubba) and it said "Bubba" was calling. When Memaw answered I heard her tell them that we were in the Christmas section. When she hung up, she said "That was weird. It said "Bubba", but it was your dad on the phone". We kinda looked at each and said "Do you think they...meaning Bubba and the boys...are here?" We both said "no" and dismissed the idea. Memaw decided to look down the long aisle and didn't see anyone. After a few more seconds, I asked again..."do you think they are here?". Then, of course, I got excited and emotional and started to get teary eyed thinking that my brother could be here!! She thought she could see him coming down the aisle...so, I threw down all the things I was looking at and decided to look for myself. And...way down the aisle...I could see my brother's head above everyone else's!!! I was sooo excited. I could not believe that my brother and his boys were surprising us!!!

Santa came!!!

Luke didn't sleep very good last night...it must have been all the excitement of Santa coming! Luke woke up about 7:00 AM and was up for good. He walked into the living room to find that Santa had came and brought lots of gifts!
This is the tree after "Santa" came...Luke got a ball pit/slide, a Mega Block table, puzzle and a caterpillar learning toy from Santa. He also got a John Deere Buck and a HUGE teddy bear!! And...that's not all...Luke got lots of clothes, 2 pair of Nike's, toys and some movies!! Santa also left a monkey rug for the bathroom and a "forehead" thermometer for Mommy and Luke.
Luke, Grandpa and teddy bear...Mommy, Memaw and Grandpa got lots of nice gifts from everyone, too.

We also had a WHITE CHRISTMAS!! Luke loves being outside and in the snow was no different...he would have stayed out there all day, if we would have let him!

Santa

Saturday morning I took Luke to Breakfast with Santa at a friend's school. I wasn't sure how it was going to go. For starters, he's cutting his back teeth and has been incredibly fussy!!! Therefore, neither of us got much sleep the night before! And, I wasn't sure if he would be scared of Santa or not. But...he did great! They had a whole little scene set up and Luke set in Santa's sleigh. He kept looking at Santa, trying to figure out who he was! It was cute. They got a few pictures of Luke looking at them and then, they got a sweet one of him and Santa looking at each other! (Sorry for the horrible picture quality...I had to take a picture of the pictures, so I could share them!)

Christmas Pictures!!!

Tonight Luke and I went to have our Christmas pictures done. I saw a family getting pictures done last week...in thier Christmas jammies!! I thought it was a cute idea, so we did the same thing. We did take a change of clothes for some other shots, but Luke was pretty much done by then, so we just got a couple. But...I LOVE the ones in our jammies!!! Enjoy!!

Wow...it's December already!

I can't believe that Christmas is almost here! I have our tree up and most of the presents wrapped and underneath. Thankfully, Luke hasn't messed with the presents much...but, he sure does love the ornaments! I bought new ornaments this year and they are plastic!!! But, I have had to take all of the ornaments off the bottom of the tree because he loves them sooo much!! We also have the outside decorated a little! I can't wait to take him to see Santa and get his picture made. I hope he will sit with Santa and not be scared...we will be doing that at Breakfast with Santa this weekend!! I'll let you know how it goes! Tonight we are going to have our family Christmas pictures done...pray they turn out cute! :)
Memaw and Grandpa are still here!!! Luke is loving every second that they are around. Can you say SPOILED?!?! Grandpa loves to take him for a ride around the block in his new "ride". And, Memaw loves to cook some yummy food for him!

And lastly...when your child goes into the kitchen...and it gets really quiet...you know he is up to something!! This is what Memaw found when she walked in...He found his box of cookies...opened and dumped them all out...then was watching his reflection in the dishwasher, as he was eating and making faces!!! What a monster!!! I sure do love him!!

Family Pics

Well, we did get some pictures while we were in Mississippi, but they weren't exactly what I wanted. I was wanting to get FAMILY pictures done...with EVERYONE in the pictures (the last ones were before Colby was a year old....before Cannon and Luke!). I have been talking about getting these done for 2 months now....and I will say that I AM NOT the reason they weren't taken. But...on a brighter note, we did get Memaw and Grandpa with all of their grandsons and pictures of the cousins together. We were worried that the boys wouldn't cooperate and want to take pictures, but they were awesome! Instead, the photographer was horrible! She took 2 different poses of the Grandparents and Grandkids, with about 3-5 shots of each pose. She only gave us ONE option to purchase....I don't know what happened with the rest (but, I will be emailing the company!). So...here are the few shots that we were able to choose from...

Birthday Party!!

Yesterday was Luke's 1st Birthday Party! He had a blast! A few family members even drove the 3 hours from Oklahoma to celebrate with us (thanks Aunt Heather, Great Grandma, Aunt Sue and cousins Lacie and Brett). Thank you to all of our family and friends that came to party with Luke. Luke was once again spoiled with many wonderful presents. He loves all of his presents and has already been playing with many of the toys, even though he wasn't very interested in opening them! He wanted to bounce in the bounce house and walk around! Luke received his first REAL set of golf clubs from his Memaw and Grandpa...the bag even has his name embroidered on it! He received some big trucks to push around, Scout the dog, a pounding nail/hammer toy, lots of clothes and many other cool toys. Here are some pictures from the party!
Luke's smash cake that Mommy made!

This thing is soooo much fun!!Luke loved the Mickey OU onesies from Aunt HeatherLuke's 1st set of golf clubs...watch out Tiger Woods!

Thank you again to everyone that came and celebrated with us...and for all of the wonderful gifts. Luke and I are truly blessed to have you in our lives.
