A little bit Wicked

Sam driving home at midnight with bloodshot eyes. I made him take this because I forgot to take a picture with him at the show. He's nice to me:)

My friend Erin is in the National Tour of "Wicked" and we got to go see her last night in Birmingham. She was so beautiful up there it made me cry. I love her and love that everytime I see her it feels like no time has past...a true friend:)She got us some amazing seats at a discounted rate. It was a 2 hour drive and we were giddy the whole time...loving being together without children(no offense children), on our way to do something special, and to see a good friend. It was an awesome night. Before the show I made Sam drive around forever in the ghetto of Birmingham looking for flowers to give Erin after the performance (one of my favorite things). The closest we came was a single fake rose for 2.99 at the local Piggly Wiggly. I almost got it for laughs but decided it wasn't worth the money:) Thanks Erin for such a great night! I loved catching up with you, it made me so happy!!!

Easter weekend

It's been a crazy week, so these are late, but we had Cubbie down from D.C. for Easter weekend, we went to an Easter egg hunt at the park, went to a Carnival, and had passover dinner (thanks Cub), here are the pics
The Passover feast
It was very pretty and symbolic
Cubbie did it all, she is the bomb!
The Easter bunnie showed up (nice hair!)
Just trying out the black and white setting
I love this picture, they loved the dinky little rides
This one was probably their favorite, it was like a mini roller coaster
Eating their collected easter egg candy
Sammy had to use a grocery bag because his basket was too full

Lukey didn't get it at first, but figured it out after a while

Kung Fu Birthday!

We love Kung Fuuuuuuuuu!

The Blue Lightning McQueen was the first gift and he wouldn't let it go, we should have saved it for last.

We like them to be rascals.

All tuckered out from partying.

The Eye of pink

Good news Henry is finally over his 3 month cold, no more sniffles. However Henry has conjunctivitis, also known as an infection of the conjunctiva, but he is still cute.

Lukey of Mine

Happy 3rd Birthday Lukey!

This is Luke's song...Baby Mine from Dumbo

Baby Mine - Betty Noyes
A few things I love about Luke:

If he wants you to hold him he says "I want to hold you." This Christmas we were at Temple Square and He saw The Christus through the big glass windows across the way and yelled, "I want to hold it!"

At about 6am every morning we hear these sweet little feet running across the wood floors. He climbs in our bed, all grins. We want to be mad at him but he is so happy we can't.

He always says "love you too" even if you didn't say I love you first.

His body is so wiggly.

He loves animals, especially dogs. We both thought how amazing it would be to get him a puppy for his birthday, but that's not really an option right now.

Whenever I reprimand him he tries to distract me by saying, "Look at the baby, he's SO cute" in a super high voice.

He has a ninja stance and will out of the blue just freeze into position and then carry on as if nothing happened.

He does "squishy face" where he squishes your cheeks together and yells "squishy face."

He likes to cuddle.

He wants to be wherever Sammy is. I can't wait for him to be old enough for primary, it's always a battle to separate him from Sammy for nursery.

...these are just a few of the gazillion reasons I love Lukey, my sweet baby boy.

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part,
baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you
they'd end up loving you two.
All of those people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.
