Happy Birthday Luke!

This is the only picture I have of Katie with the bow in.  Not sure where it went, but by cupcake time, it was gone.  

Huge thanks to www.seventhgeneration.com for providing the coupons & samples in the mama goodie bags.

Jack and his friend, M.  

Luke with my friend, B, who I met when I was pregnant with Zachary, a million years ago.

Brianna did an amazing job making several dozen cupcakes the day after coming home from a week at camp.  

For me? 

Since Luke had no idea what to do with it, Sam helped with the blowing out the candle part.

What is this?

It's messy.

It goes in your mouth, son.


One more thing I never thought I'd be feeding with a baby spoon:  cupcake!

Katie knew just what needed to be done here.  
Nom nom nom

Luke shares a bday with my friend, S!  
(who has a cutie foster baby under that dipe)

Katie was not the only one nom nom nom-ing the cupcakes.
But the teenagers managed to ellude the camera.

Actually, I didn't take nearly enough pictures.
The other party pics had kids that can't be shown on the 'net.
Yeah, I could edit them.
Not gonna happen.

But I think it's pretty cool that out of 40+ people here yesterday, 11 of the kids were adopted or foster children.  And Hannah was at school!  

These were taken later, after naps.  

Sam and Luke have a special bond that warms my heart.  
Of all the kids, Sam is the one who likes Luke the most.  He's great about helping to carry him up and down the stairs for me.

Happy Birthday, little man!
