We took Lucas to see Santa a few days ago fully expecting him to cry and not like Santa. That was not the case. He loves men and Santa didn't scare him. It was so cute. We were so proud of him. We are so happy with how the pictures turned out. Lucas looks adorable. His moose sweater is so perfect too. I hope you enjoy these pictures too!

Here is Lucas' Thanksgiving dinner:
And the famous pies:
Lucas taking a bath in the blue tub with his cousin Skyler:
This was many years ago in the same blue tub: Me (about 18 months old), cousin Russell, and sisters Karen, Gina, and Jill. How did we all fit in there?!?
This is one of the times when he was so tired and just let my sister Karen cuddle with him. It was so cute. Climbing up onto the stool, what a clever boy!
"Don't look at me, I am trying to get into something that I shouldn't"
Here is a funny story: The other day we were over at Ryan's parent's house. Lucas went into the kitchen and was opening up the cupboard under the sink. Ryan started to tell him No and Lucas then pointed at Ryan and gabbered like he didn't want him to say No. Then when Ryan walked into the kitchen Lucas would run the other way like he didn't want to get in trouble. He did it a few times and it was really funny. It was like he was cursing Ryan for telling him no.

This will probably be the last month of these pictures since he is getting bigger and will soon graduate to a bigger carseat. I need to think of another way to chart his growth.

Ryan put together this video for Lucas' birthday party. It is about 11 minutes long. It is a great video of Lucas growing this last year. We love Lucas so much and are so happy that he is a part of our family.

Lucas has been taking his first steps and it is so fun to watch him learn how to walk. He still prefers crawling, but he is slowing getting the whole walking thing. I will post of video of one of the first days of him walking.
Costume photo shoot at my sister's and then my friend has an beautiful maple tree in her yard.
This was taken on October 20, which was our 5 year anniversary, and this is where we got married. It was a beautiful fall day just like the day that we got married.
I love how he has he hand on the pumpkin. This is at my sister's house.

The invitations (designed and created by my sister):
The walkway leading to the party:
The candy station (the drawer had little boxes for the guests to put their candy):
The cake! Of course because Lucas loves yellow ducks. I made this. I packed the bucket with styrofoam then pieced two cakes on top. I used cream cheese frosting tinted blue. The duck was made from a duck cake pan that I bought online. Then I decorated it with buttermilk frosting, m&ms for the eyes, and then their are marshmallows as the bubbles (another of Lucas' favorite things).
For snacks and appetizers we had salad with carmelized almonds and homemade poppyseed dressing, homemade pretzel tots with cheese, cream cheese frosting, and pumpkin spiced cream cheese frosting, pigs in a blankets (lil smokies wrapped in crescent rolls) and cocktail meatballs.
Chocolate milk was the beverage of choice in these cute bottles with yellow and white striped straws:
