Happy Birthday Luke

My Dearest Luke,
You are three years old today. Your first question would be "why?" This series of "why" questions just started last week on Tuesday. You literally asked "why?" 50 times in one afternoon. I guess the most memorable part of this new experience of your life was your Daddy squatting down to your level reasoning with you on what you could and could not ask "why" questions about. In his defense, he had pneumonia and fever and was and bit under the weather. Never the less, it was funny.

Luke, you weigh 34 pounds. You are pretty tall for your age -at least that is what every one tells us. You love to play football and basketball. You also love to play "bear fighting". That is where we pretend we are bears and play fight, then we hunt. Speaking of hunting, you can't wait to "get bigger" so you can go hunting with your Daddy for deer. I believe you are going to be your Daddy's flying buddy - you are crazy about airplane videos on the computer. You love helicopters, and remote control radios.
For your birthday, your Daddy bought you a small remote control helicopter - your were extremely excited about it when you saw what it was.

You have quite the imagination. You have two very good friends that really do not exist - except in your world. Dee Dee and Good Girl. The crazy thing is that Dee Dee and Good Girl change characters frequently - to fit whatever you are playing in your little world.

You love to go to church. You love to spend time with your Granny. You love your school. You love to sing. I think your Daddy summed you up pretty good when he said "Luke, you have enough personality for two kids".

Hello - Yes we are alive!

It has been forever since I wrote you all a sweet little update.  We have been so busy with LIFE that I am just simply exhausted at night that I don't even get on the computer to read my blogs much less write one about our mundane life. 

I guess one exciting thing has happened here - It snowed! In a place where the closest thing that we get to snow is the weather man on the News channel standing on a street corner all bound up in his finest winter coat and scarf being filmed looking into the air telling you to go stock up on bread and milk and prepare for the worse when it's 32 degrees and a chance of flurries.

We actually got about 6 inches of pretty fluffy snow.  The sad part, I don't have any pictures because Doug and I  were not in town.  Luke was at his Granny's house.  He did get to build a snow man though!  My mom said that weekend all the states had snow in them except Hawaii.  I just hope it killed the gnats that we get here in the summer! 

I will leave you with a great pic of the kids - it is from December 09.  I am learning that I need to take more pictures!  They are changing so fast! 

Have a great week! 
Love yall!
