Breakfast with Santa

This past Saturday, a good friend and I hosted Breakfast with Santa for a few friends and their children. It was a lot of fun seeing the kiddos in their jammies and waiting for Santa to arrive. I'm not sure a lot of them realized what was going on...until Santa rang the doorbell! I was kinda worried about how Luke would do. As soon as Santa came in, Luke came running to me scared! He had me pick him up, but then he wanted to shake Santa's hand. After Santa visited and started pulling gifts out of his bag, Luke wasn't as scared. Actually, he was quite funny. He kept inching closer and closer to Santa, waiting for his name to be called. At one point, he even pointed at himself and said his name because he wanted Santa to call it. Once Santa called his name, he couldn't get to him fast enough as he came running around the couch! I'm so glad that Luke (and all of the kids--and their parents)enjoyed it. I'm ready for next years! Here are a few pictures that I took.

Some of my mom's yummy sugar cookies. Didn't she do an awesome job decorating them?

The food!!!

A few pics...

I have been a big time bad blogger!! Here are a few pictures from last week.

Mommy and Luke at Holiday on the Hill for the Christmas tree lighting.

Luke and Mommy with Santa. Luke wouldn't sit by himself, but he didn't scream and cry! He shook Santa's hand and kept saying "Ro-Ro". If you ask Luke what Santa say's, he will tell you "Ro, Ro, Ro". He can't say Ho, Ho, Ho. Therefore, he thinks Santa is Ro-Ro. I think it's pretty darn cute! :) He gets so excited when he sees a picture of Santa or sees him on tv.
This one is kinda hard to see. If you look close, you can see Luke and I coming down the big slide! He loved it!! He even talked his Papa into taking him down it again!Luke was looking at the lollipop ornament...thinking..."hmm, maybe I should eat this!" Luke was "pretending to be asleep" and waiting on Santa! Luke loves listening to the Night Before Christmas "Ro-Ro"

Luke's 2 year pictures

Luke looked so darn cute for his pictures! Too bad, he wasn't in the mood to take them! I wish he would have smiled...in at least one of them! OH, and the only way we could get him to take any, was to bring the stupid toy in from the lobby and let it be in the pictures, too!

Dancing Fool

Who said "White boys can't dance?!?" Haha! Luke has started dancing when he plays one of his Elmo toys. He cracks me up!! Tonight I was finally able to get a little of it on video. He usually dances a lot more and moves around more. Still....it will crack you up!

Elmo Party

Luke's 2nd birthday party was a success!! He had several friends come and celebrate with him (thank you Aunt Sue for driving all the way from Okla for his party!). The kids played on his new swing set, drove each other around in his car, played with the bean bags and ate cupcakes. Everything was great...until...the swarm of the BEE's!! We had to move the party inside once the bee's smelled the cake! Here are a few pictures of the party (ok...so, there are a lot of pictures!)!
