2 Years

His laugh is infectious, his smile contagious. He has an obsession with balls. He has a great overhand throw, is learning how to catch(and does well most times), shoots hoops with precision, holds and swings a baseball bat correctly, kicks soccer balls great, and is working on his dribble. He is not bad with a golf club either. Did I mention he has an obsession? We celebrated his second birthday in between conference sessions this year. Complete with taco bar, (his favorite food) tons of balls, and a pinata. It was not lost on him that he was getting all of the attention. The kid is a ham and he knows how to turn on the charm. When I took him in for his two year old check up he had the nurse wrapped around his finger, she kept telling him how he just made her day. Our family has sure been blessed, we love you Luke!

Papa comes to town

My mom usually comes to visit about once a year, but my dad we see far less often. He hadn't seen Luke since he was about a month old. When they reunited they became good buds.
We had a lot of fun with Papa. He got our house ready for Halloween, we picked pumpkins, and I got a new faucet installed. My dad is a very hard worker and I remember him always busy working. It was nice to have him here just relaxing and having fun, enjoying the kids. In the words of my two year old it was "awesome!"
