Happy 4th Birthday to Luke

Hard to believe it's been 4 years already. He's changed so much in the last year. Here are some pictures from his birthday party on Saturday. Can you guess the theme?

[Updated with better picture. Much less grainy than the previous version.] How about this one?

Mom did her usual fabulous job on the cake. And for those who know about such things, be prepared to be impressed. We made our own red and black icing! And it tasted great and looked fabulous. Much better than the red we bought because people convinced us that red was too hard to make. Theirs was like canned icing, and not very good canned icing either. Yes, we were very proud of ourselves! Luke liked it, too.

We got to meet our niece for the very first time. Luke had absolutely no idea what to make of her. I don't think he's ever really been around a baby before. I do think he was happy to return to being the center of attention once she left. He didn't get upset or anything, he was just very unsure of himself around her.

But there were plenty of smiles

and lots of silly fun.

Everything pretty much went off without a hitch, and I think everyone had a great time. Yay!

Currently feeling: partied out

  5. Great pics and it looks like the cake came out wonderfully - I'm so impressed. I have to be sure not to open this at home where Katie can see - she is a big, big Lightning McQueen fan. :)
