Let me back up by saying first, that when the situation involves my house and Lucas, I no longer exist. I am simply the person who makes him behave resulting in my being a stick-in-the-mud. The Mr., his brother and my in-laws are his absolute favorite.
From the moment he arrived on Tilley Creek, he was wide open. He couldn't wait to see Matt Matt, Luke, Mr. Sammy & Mrs. Michelle. He also was very concerned as to when he was going to be able to open his birthday present(s). He talked of what his hoped his gift would be, how cool he knew it was going to be, and how he couldn't wait to open his presents. He was one anxious child.
Saturday morning arrived all too early, as I was woken by a tap on my shoulder, "Deej, is it time to get up?" We got up and I had to send the Mr to the store to pick up icing for the birthday cake and to get Lucas' birthday present. While he was gone, I began working on Lucas' birthday breakfast, french toast.
Matt finally got back home and Lucas was able to open his present. Out the door Lucas flew as fast as he possibly could.

|*Look at that face! He's trying real hard to get the wrapping off.*|

After he opened his bike and rode it up and down the driveway and through the garden, oh, some gazillion times, he came inside for his French Toast Breakfast. Birthday candle included.
After getting showers, we went to our niece's soccer game. Afterwards the game, Lucas & Alannah piled into the truck and headed to Asheville to the WNC Nature Center. I had never been to the Nature Center and I had a blast. The only animal that we didn't get to see was the Bobcat. It was hiding really well.

We arrived home and Lucas and Alannah had us all in stitches laughing at their antics.

|*Happy Birthday, dear Lucas*|
