3 YEARS AGO.......
This is just a quick shout out as I could make this post go on & on & on.......
The story of our little princess begun 3 years ago today!
Our first born, our little girl arrived 7lbs 4 oz
London Olivia Lueck

Words will never describe the feelings we had on your arrival! Love, love, love filled our hearts and our lives have never been the same since!
Dad held you first. He was with you ever minute after you arrived, down the halls of the Hospital, in the nursery and back to me where I held you for the first time.

There was no greater peace knowing you had arrived healthy and well.
The first moments we shared with you brought great emotions and humility to our hearts.

Everything about you was perfect! I remember your brown hair, amazing big eyes, full lips and how your sweetness filled the room. We stared at you for hours in amazement.

You continued to grow so fast and amaze us in your interests,

as well as your brilliant, silly personality!

The girlie, girl with the BIGGEST sweet tooth!

Our little cheesy, cheese!
There has always been a special friendship between us that I hope lasts forever. You always tell both Dad & I that we are your best friend! You are an incredible friend to everyone around you. You are our social butterfly!

My BIG helper, always wanting to stay busy!

Daddy's little girl!

You always seem to find the best in everything even on a rainy day!

You have become the most amazing big sister to your brother!
I love to watch the special bond you two have and how Kingston watches every movement you make , smiles at all you say and giggles with excitement when you walk into the room.
We love you so much!

So grown up! Everyday she tells me that she doesn't want to ever grow up, she wants to stay little. Sometimes I wish this myself as I adore and love my little girl just as she is.
I so look forward to many more wonderful years ahead in watching her grow and blossom into a unique and special individual I know she will be.

Happy 3rd Birthday Buttons!

London loves to read books!
This was yesterday while visiting my Mom for Thanksgiving.
Celebrating her Birthday weekend!

We love every bit of you! Thanks for 3 awesome years making us laugh and grow with you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

LU Lu & I made these funky turkey's today! I have no idea if there is possibly any white feathered turkey's, but in London's world there are! We have Mama (Shelly) and baby (Phoenix).

Our little Pilgrim couple & Indian made out of toilet paper rolls:) We heart recycled things, we didn't make them....a crafty couple in our ward made them for our party last weekend. Cute & simple though!

Hope you all have a Happy Thank-full day!

It's been one of those days........

Miss London tuckered out on me at the table tonight.
She was so hungry returning home from our Ward Thanksgiving/Christmas party ?????
You ask how?
( because she only ate a few pieces of turkey and was off having fun, she never really even ate, unless you consider candy canes and orange's filling food),
so I made her a quick bowl of noodles to munch on before hitting the hay.
I don't think she even had a bite, she was out!
This is what happens around 5:30 pm when she doesn't get a nap in during the day. She didn't even get a chance to crash on me mid evening because we had been busy prepping for photos for the ward party, making food for the party, running errands and just goofing off!
Who has time to rest?

Goofing off while setting up for photos.

I love my handsome man!!!
He is officially rolling over and ready to be on the GO!
He prefers to stand all day and sit, sit, sit to play.
He is always trying to jump out of my lap to chase after Londs. If you hold his little hands he will cruise around the room with his little chubby legs & feet moving quick! He is a crack up!
Mr Happy,Smiley Man!

My little Sweetness!
Wow has this busy ball of energy sprouted!
She is miss overly helpful, a great helper just a bit ambitious.
I never would have imagined I would be so challenged with a very intelligent, witty, charming little person. She keeps us busy (sigh), but really it's more like we need to keep her busy or she gets bored and gets a bit naughty. I think it's the age or else I keep convincing myself it is.
One moment I am adoring her and she is the perfect angel, the next she is tearing our house apart, playing way too rough with Kingston and I am above my chin frustrated with her.
Why the emotional roller coaster rides?
I want my consistent little sweetness back.
All in all she is miss independent and that is that!
Bazaar, but a super fashion diva here, a bit like the Fancy Nancy smanshie stuff. Over the top!
There are so many stories to share about my silly girl, but where to start?
Put aside all of the challenges and all are experiencing with her, she is the most super duper girl ever! We are so blessed to have her in our family, she completes us and I love, love and adore her to pieces. My conclusion... It's my test of patience, humility, unfaltering love, keeping an open mind and looking outside the box! Lets hope I pass the test someday:) LOL
Just look at this package of amazement!

UNLV Basketball Season Ticket Holder....
Those of you who know my husband, know that he was in heaven when his UNLV Basketball season tickets came in the mail! Better yet, he and his BFF got their tickets together.(oh my they are crazy) Yes! It is that time of year when everything revolves around BB! He has London all hyped up to go to a BB game with him in the near future and before long he will have Kings trained hooting & hollering "REBELS", like he has Londs:)

This little army of a man is growing so fast! He drools like a broken sprinkler, drip, drip, drip!

I know it has been a very long time since I have posted, and Halloween was last month, my oh! my!
Here we have our little Peter Pan & Tinkerbell!
Don't they make quite the pair. I couldn't bring myself to buy costumes this year, so I made them! London already had the wings, I just made a few additions and changes. For her dress we found it for a couple of bucks and I added sleeves, decor and sized it down for her little petite frame. Peter Pan's costume was created from a picture... I have to say it was so fun creating and making something from nothing! I heart homemade costumes, they Rock!!!
The original plan was our Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy(Me)& Captain Hook (Robs), but I didn't make enough time to make our costumes. I have had alot on our plate with projects never ending and yadada yadda yadda! So Happy Halloween from us!

Trick OR Treating

It has become a Halloween tradition to spend the evening at David & Crystal's home.
(On the nicer side of town)
As you can see, we were dressed in our best for the trick or treating extravaganza. These are just the youngsters, the older kids were long gone with friends! Lots of Fun!
