Luke's SUPER Birthday!!
3 YEARS OLD!! The Cake:
Luke requested SUPERMAN for his cake this year. I was ready with a simple design that I could COPY exactly from a picture (like always - I have NO artistic ability!), but Ben insisted that it be "the man". SO, as you see here BEN did the artistic outline of "the man" while...

Yours truly filled it in - easy cake!! Hee Hee!!
... with a little pesky help from KATE - of course!!!

Now for the PARTY!!
A little photo shoot with the happy 3 year old!

It took 3 tries, but he got them all out!
Ethan told Luke: "Lukie, you know how you blew out my candles on my birthday? Well I'm NOT going to do that!"
Happy Boy!
Luke wanted Superman's head of course!!

Ever run out of tape on a birthday??? Painter's tape to the rescue!
Time for presents!
The Doodle Pro from Grandma and Grandpa Hatch
and "The Joker" (thanks mom for encouraging their obsession with bad guys!)
Bath toys!
and the Smith family PLAYMOBILE EMPIRE grows!!

Putting the castle together

After opening a few birthday cards with a gift card for more goodies from Grandpa and Grandma Smith and some cash from the great grandparents, we played for a short while, took a quick scrub in the tub, and headed for bed. A full, fun, and LONG day!!
Happy Birthday my little LUKE!!

This is Luke this morning at 5:30 AM diving right back in where he left off!
Another LONG day ahead!

Happy Birthday, Luke!

Loved the pictures. The whole family is adorable! I can't believe how big the kids are.

Love your pics! I can't believe Luke is 3 already!!! He looks like so much fun and trouble at the same time. :) Wish we could see all your adorable kids sometime. I especially loved your comment that you have NO artistic talent: WHATEVER! If you could only imagine the birthday cakes I've tried in the past 2 years, you wouldn't say that. :)

Happy Birthday Lukie!
