This was the only picture I could grab of the two of them that night. Scott had to be super mom and dad since I was busy with setting up the night's activities. He fed and dressed the boys himself and got them to school all alone.
Luke couldn't believe we let him take a big bag of candy home after G.L.O.W. He was in awe of the collection and every day he would have one piece of candy after every meal (he even tried to get breakfast dessert)

Luke and Uncle Ben playing a duet. If memory serves me, isn't there a cute picture of Ben playing the piano when he was younger...or was that Josh?
And this is a clear glimpse into Luke and Ben's daily life. Every day when Ben wakes up, Luke goes in and dumps out every block they own. He then points at himself, at Ben, and at the pile of blocks. I then I'm asked to leave so the brothers can get to work. Ben follows Luke everywhere so Luke likes to walk around the house and look behind him to make sure his shadow is there. I hope this love stuff lasts.
Grandma and Grandpa have come to our house twice in the last two months. We love having them. Ben mostly enjoyed staring at Grandpa...for a long time...

Helping Dad put the trach can in the garage...which would be easier without that silly van in the way. Dad got out his step stool to hang a picture for me...so Luke got out his step stool to hang a picture on the tv.
I know Erin beat me to Luke's birthday pictures, but here are a few from his actual birthday and other highlights from his party.
It was the first day of school so we went up to Trinity and took Katrina, Emily, and Tiffany to McDonald's after their half day. We spent the rest of the day hanging out at home with Dad and then Dad made Luke's favorite, beer can chicken. And for dessert, Mommy's first attempt at a homemade birthday cake...that's right it was from scratch. The decorating didn't work out well on the first try, but Luke could tell it was a baseball so that's all that mattered.
"Can I have some cake?"
"Look what I can do! Now can I have some cake?"
That Sunday after Luke's birthday we had a small celebration with family and friends. Luke got a second baseball cake FROM SCRATCH. This one started out looking much nicer then the first one...until Aunt Erin convinced Luke in order to eat the big cake (instead of a cupcake) he needed to go in face first.
And Uncle Chad showed him how.
Then cuddle with Christina to watch Curious George (a present)
Ben watches Luke's every move.
We could see the critic's reviews.
Laundry Baskets are loads of fun!
This is a little taste of Ben's new hobby.
And melting your heart.
