Could you sleep like this?

Nate, Ashley, and Clint took Luke for several hours yesterday afternoon to play. They made a run to Wal-Mart, and apparently Luke was pretty sleepy! I would definitely need the chiropractor after a nap in that position! Thanks for the great picture, Nate.

So, I'm a liar!

Ok, so the honeymoon is over with the big-boy bed. Luke has been getting up for a couple of weeks now. Nothing too serious, just a couple of times a night. We about had it fixed, but Jeremy is at Bogg Springs this week filling in for Doug, and Luke apparently decided that means he can do whatever he wants. We both almost died last night. After several spankings, some yelling, and some crying too, he was still running out of his room as soon as I put him down LAUGHING! He thought it was all some big game. After 2 hours and a call to my wonderful mother-in-law at 10:45 pm (thank you, Lana), I finally shut myself in my bedroom after toddler-proofing the house, (as much as one can toddler proof a house). This did the trick. Once he realized I would not engage him at all, he gave up. Either that or he was finally just really sleepy. I'm hoping it was the first reason. After I came out to check on him, he asked if he could lie down with me. I obliged, and he was asleep in 5 minutes. I am praying hard there will not be a repeat tonight; although, I am not particularly optimistic. If he gets up tonight, I am just going to my room and shutting the door again. Hopefully, he will give up before 11:30 pm. Anyway, if anyone has any great suggestions, I would love to hear them.

We just got back from a 4-day trip to Branson, and had a really good time. We went with Jeremy's family, so Luke had a great time with his cousins. Here are some pictures from Silver Dollar City. Luke would have ridden every ride in the park if they would have let him; he is not afraid of anything.

It was Kids' Fest so they had a VeggieTales show.

Luke and Jillian are only 2 months apart in age, so they really have a good time together.

Rylee is our big girl, she just finished kindergarten.

Buzz Cut

Luke got his first buzz cut a few weeks ago. I'm sorry the pictures aren't very good, but it's very difficult to get a 3-year-old to stand still.

I Wanna Be A Cowboy

Jeremy got Luke a surprise last time he went out of town, and it was a big hit. Luke loves his mask and toy gun. Yes, I said gun! He might as well have a toy gun because he makes sticks, baseball bats, and even his finger into guns anyway.
