Easter Sunday. . . . So it's been forever since we updated the blog. We've been crazy busy with getting our house ready for this buyers market. So now that it's done, we will hopefully do better about putting up pics.

Jenn brought Luke up to the station with Nana and Pops, because unfortunately I had to work on Easter this year. Next year, when he actually knows what's going on, we'll hunt easter eggs and make a big deal out of the day.

So, as you can tell, Luke needed a haircut. We've given him two prior to this one; first one--a small trim, the second--major trim which resulted in mom crying and saying he's never getting a haircut again!

Here's a couple of before shots. Jenn getting her last look and feel of Luke's long locks. Luke could care less--he was just excited to be riding in a race car!

The process of occupying a one year old during a haircut consists of riding in a race car, watching Blues Clues and an occassional funny face from daddy.

Now, looking very professional. The lady put gel in it and combed it like this. After we left, I proceeded to mess it all up and let it look wavy. There's no need for professionalism this early, right?!
The cutest two faces ever

The finished product. Jenn at least didn't cry, and Luke seemed to love it too.

This is one of his favorite toys. His first birthday is coming up this Monday, February 9th. So instead of toys, we will just present him with some more Griffin's syrup bottles.--can't have too many you know!!

These are a couple of our favorite "cute, ugly" pictures of Luke over the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

The next three are pictures I took after he woke up from his afternoon nap. I think he was still partly asleep. He's got great bed-head.

And our favorite. . . .

I'm very sorry that I haven't posted anything in over a month. So, to catch up with what we've done over the past month, here are some highlights. It's in two posts, so you have to scroll down. Enjoy!

He couldn't get enough of cousins Kenzie and Kamryn and they couldn't get enough of him either!

As we thought he would, he loved the wrapping paper more than anything.

"Thanks Pops and Nana!"

"Seriously, this wrapping paper is awesome!"

Shoes from Pops and Nana
We got luke his first doughnut---a krispy kreme raspberry jelly filled one. He loved it as you can see.

We ran the eight mile turkey trot on Thanksgiving morning with my mom, dad, brother Matt, his wife Megan, and nephew Alexander. It was a blast and Luke did great in his jogging stroller.

Thanksgiving day. All the cousins minus Drake. Luke loves his cousins!

A week ago, we went camping with couples from our church. We go every spring and fall. It was Luke's first camping trip while outside of the womb-Jenn was a trooper and went when pregnant last year. Luke did great and we had a blast. We look forward to many, many more camping outings together.

It was cold at night and in the morning, but we had the fire and layers of clothes to put on. Luke didn't seem to mind at all.

Our dogs in the hammock and the tent in the background. You can see the extention cord on the ground leading to the electric blanket and sound machine going to our tent--we rough it, but not too rough.

Our raccoon friend during the weekend.

Cooking pancakes and sausage in the morning. Everything tastes better while camping!
Our friends had their bikes, so Luke and I went for a ride. He loved it! He talked the whole time. It may be time to get one for ourselves

He passed out right at seven every night, so we just took turns cuddling him around the campfire before we went to bed. It was good times.
