Lowe’s Build and Grow

Saturday morning we headed to Lowe’s for their Build and Grow workshop.

They had little aprons, hammers, goggles, and a kit to build Shrek & Fiona’s onion carriage.  Let’s just say that Calvin loved getting to hit the hammer on everything…maybe not so much the actual “building”.


I’m not sure how I feel about his using a hammer while yawning!


I love how serious he was about it..


All done!


He’s trying to “fix” it.  Luke Calvin forgot to hammer the onion piece to the cart, so he ghettoly taped it until we could fix it at home.


And of course Lucy Kate was their, 4 months old now..


Don’t you just love that scratch on her face?  I haven’t taken her 4 month pics yet b/c I was hoping it would heal up fast!

Every time you attend a workshop you get a little patch to iron on to your apron…kinda like Calvin’s Wilderness Explorer friend Russell :)  So we’ll be sure to attend as many as we can!

Little Model

I laid Lucy Kate on the floor of our room so I could get ready and came back to find this pose…


She continued to lay like this for a while…what a goober :)

Rolling Over

For a present for her daddy, Lucy Kate decided she would roll over from her back to her tummy!  She started on her back (no pic), went to her side…


…and ended up on her tummy…


…where she eventually got frustrated b/c she still hasn’t mastered the rolling from tummy to back move.

Happy Birthday Luke!

Sunday was Luke’s 28th birthday!  Mamaw, Papaw & Katie came down for the weekend to celebrate.  On Saturday night we had a little party for him and Mike, Sandy & Thai Thai joined us.

I realized we didn’t have any pics of Thai Thai and Lucy Kate, so we decided to get some before he left on his move to California!


I don’t know if any of you remember that I made a Black Tie Mousse Cake for Luke’s 25th birthday, well I attempted to make one again this year and it turned out loads better!  I used a recipe I found on Pinterest, which of course was taken down since Saturday, probably b/c it almost tastes exactly like Olive Garden’s recipe!  Mine was a little too cheesecakey, but I think I know how to fix it.  And the chocolate mousse on top didn’t exactly turn out the color I wanted, but it tasted good!


All those yummy layers…mmmmm good :)

And to top the night off we watched The Hunger Games, Luke’s birthday present from his parents which may or may not have been more of a present for me…

Happy Birthday Lukie!

Wearing Green

Luke’s Aunt Sandy’s birthday was last week and as her present she wanted everyone to take pictures wearing her favorite color: green.  So here are the goobers sporting their green!

Sorry the pics are a little blurry, but at least they’re both looking at the camera :)


What a nerd.

Lucy Kate’s been loving her Bimbo Bumbo seat despite the recent recall..


Well maybe she doesn’t love it, at least not from the looks on her face :)

Lucy Kate 3 Month Photos

Last Wednesday was LK’s 3 month birthday!  Time sure flies!! 

We absolutely LOVE this little girl.  She is an awesome baby…really, she’s soooo good!  She rarely cries and when she does it’s most likely b/c Calvin head butted her or something.  She’s been sleeping about 12 hours at night, which is amAzing!!  (Calvin didn’t sleep through the night completely until like 10 months!)  And she recently started laughing, although it’s challenging to get her to do it so no video of it yet..

3 Month Stats (we didn’t have a doctor’s appt, so these are rough estimates based on at-home measuring):

  • ~13lbs
  • ~25 inches long
  • ~16.5 inches head size


For some reason this pic stands out as Baby Stephanie to me:
