Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties and didn't get the first part of her dance (the part that I choreographed...), but here's the last part. SO CUTE! One of our favorite parts is the way she ran off stage.
And in case any of you are wondering, Lily takes a ballet class once a week and she LOVES it! Oh and of course Luke was the one on the piano.

For the last 12 days Marren and Jeff were here. We each have 3 children now and things are a bit more crazy because of it, but we still had so much fun. It's always so hard to say goodbye to them and we never seem to get enough of eachother regardless of how much time we spend together. I just saw them drive off 5 minutes ago and I miss them so much already that it's put me in a bit of a melancholy state. But since the melancholy state is caused by such love and happiness, I think it's quite worth it. Once again, I'm so grateful for such an amazing relationship. Thank you Marren and Jeff for coming up and playing with us for 12 days!!! We love you guys SO MUCH. Can't wait to see you again!

This morning Luke's sister Marren and her family surprised Luke by driving up from Utah. They got in around 6:45 am. That is love right there. He was so happy to see them. Marren and Jeff have been our bestfriends for the last 6.5 years and we just love them a lot. Luke had to go to work after but then we had a nice celebratory dinner with his favorite foods - Bruchetta, Spinach Artichoke Dip and Lasagna. Instead of cake this year he really wanted Apple Dumplings from the same website mentioned above, which are super easy and heavenly!
Happy Birthday Babe!
