Luke's Birthday in Pictures

For Luke's birthday, we went to a Children's Museum where it was all decorated for Christmas. Most of the activities consisted of making ornaments and Christmas decorations. Here is Luke making a paper chain decoration for the tree.
These three all love to do crafts, so they had lots of fun.
Luke got a digital camera for his birthday. He loves to take pictures, so he should have a lot of fun with it.

He loves his pocket knife, and is using it here to cut open some plastic on one of his gifts.

Posing with his new bow.

All of the boys have wanted a Darth Vader cake, but I could never bring myself to make a black cake. My mom brought the pan with her and I compromised with a chocolate version of Darth Vader. Luke was so surprised!

Trying to get a good picture of all six is nearly impossible, but here is the best one.

The kids always want to take a silly picture, so here they are, their true selves!

We had sick people the two days before Luke's birthday, and I didn't feel so swell on his birthday, but God was good and Luke enjoyed his day, went to bed, and right before midnight, woke up sick. At least he got to enjoy his day. The day after his birthday, we had four more sick. We were all praying that no one would be sick on Thanksgiving, and that we could eat something beside turkey soup.


  1. Looks like fun and I love the Darth Vader cakde! I hope you all are feeling better now!

  2. Amy you did a nice job on the Darth Vader Cake. I think it looks so much better being brown than if it was black. I trust you had a great visit with your mom. Hope all of you are feeling better now.

  3. Your family looks as if they have a blast together! I love seeing that!
    God bless,

  4. What a silly crew you have! Look a bit like ours. I was looking at old photos once and for months I couldn't find one picture that someone wasn't making a silly face. I had to lay down the law in order to get a few good shots. Of course, now my younger ones are such hams! I may have created a few monsters:) As soon as the camera comes out Elisabeth will drop whatever she is doing and smile at the camera. Once she was throwing a fit and I thought it was so funny I whipped out the camera. She stopped instantly and smiled at the camera. What a bad mama I was. I couldn't stop laughing long enough to do anything about her bad attitude.


Thanks for stopping by. I seriously love comments, so please take the time and say hi and tell me what you are thinking!
