no, your eyes don't deceive you...


those really are pictures you see. somehow, luke turned 3 today and we've had a party with a cake that made it to the table completely intact. i'm really not sure how it happened. in fact, if someone could let me know how he miraculously turned from a sleeping, gurgling, toe-sucking tiny baby to the cars-obsessed giant he is today, i'd greatly appreciate it. its amazing how much faster time really does fly as you get older. it seems like just yesterday that i walked in to find him eating a whole package of graham crackers (see picture on the right side of your screen), or when he learned how to walk by pushing a hot pink stroller around my sister-in law's house. he really is pretty darn cool and even though potty training officially sucks and he sometimes (often) makes me question why i bore him in the first place...i love the little boy/big brother that he has become. happy birthday little buddy. here's to you and your love of string cheese and flashlights. you really do make life a little more colorful...you and nbc (their new slogan for those of you non tv-watchers).

Happy birthday, little guy! Or maybe I should say BIG guy. They grow up so fast. He is so cute!

The party looked fun and that cake was so cute. Way to go.

I can't believe little Luke is 3!!! He was just a little guy in the missionary class... and now look at him! And the cake was so fun!

Great cake, and unlike all those Chef Duff cakes, yours probably tasted good!

very VERY cute. Both the cake and the kid. Time really does fly by when you are old fogies like us.

PS was reminiscing about elementary school today and totally remembered the "old men" on the playground. We were so silly.

Dude, love the cake! Good work! Luke looks so excited about it. You do realize you have a 3 year old, and a baby. You guys are so middle age. HA! It's okay, we're right behind ya. Wish we could have been there. I could always go for some good cake. :)
