Lucas being Lucas ...

We spent our evening over at our friends house with there family. They have been so kind as to adopt us in as family inviting us for Thanksgiving and now Christmas. I again forgot to get my camera out (I'm getting really bad at remembering to take pic's) But here is a video of Lucas being a goof for everyone. He doesn't not mind meeting new people he just goes for it all out.

Christmas morning

We had a great Christmas this year. It was sooo much fun watching Lucas get so excited with every little thing. He actually looks very serious in most of the pictures I took, I guess he felt the need to get down to business and open all the gifts. He was spoiled by all! He got Lots of duck gear, which he loves to wear. Some super stylin other outfits, some Chuck Taylors, books, puzzles, crayons and coloring books, lots of toys all kinds, a basket ball hoop, two wooden trains from his great grandparents (I thought that was funny), and a drum set. He has so many new things to play with! He keeps momma busy picking it all up! He loves the drums. I keep them put away because they are for older kids, but He usually gets to play them a little every day. The video has a bunch of him playing the drums. He just took right to it and loves them. I even got one picture that is great, I figure i better hang on to it in case he becomes a drummer!

12 days of Christmas

Lucas's Papa and Nana sent him 12 days of Christmas this year. It was really neat to have something for him to open every day. This was such a great and thoughtful idea! I don't have it all on video or pictures, but i do have this video of one of the gifts. He loves this guitar and is constantly walking around with it just dancing up a storm. Day one Lucas got a tube on M&M's and was so excited I think it may still be his favorite gift! He screams and dances when i give him 1 M&M. it cracks me up! Plus for probably a week after that everything he opened he would say "mmmmmmm" thinking he was getting something yummy. I am not sure of the order of all the other gifts but there was a rose bowl duck shirt, duck pj's a duck blanket, several books, a phonics bus with frogs, whoppers, and an Oregon duck call, I feel like I'm forgetting something but i guess thats what i get for slacking and not posting until now. anyway It was a very neat idea and Lucas loved every second of it!

ole' Santa at his post

That was the title of the news paper article that was in the hutch news paper along with a photo of Lucas and myself visiting with Santa. Our neighbor dresses up every year and sits out side every night passing out candy canes to kids as they come by to look at the lights. I did not realize it was the news when i went down to say hello, but anyway thats what came of it. I was recognized all over town with Lucas that day ... that there tells me i live in way to small of a town!

Aunt Taylor and Uncle john's Visit

I did not take any pictures while tate and john were here, shame on me. but Taylor did take a few. We had a great time while they were here, I guess maybe thats why we didn't think to snap a few shots. anyway here is what we do have.

The Thizzle

One thing that Lucas loves to do is dance. and while aunt Taylor and uncle John were out Taylor discovered that Lucas dances just like this one dance called the "thizzle" I had not ever heard the song and I did not post the video due to content, how ever if you want to look it up you can find it in youtube under thizzle. I had told Taylor, even thought I don't really go out dancing anymore If i did go I'd have to be careful not to just go bust out Lucas's moves. At least now I know if i do it's a west coast dance and it has a name so it's all good .... right??

Talking to Papa

Lucas loves talking to his family on skype, this is a lil video of him chatting with his papa. pretty sweet.

The Potty

No pictures but i wanted to post that today at 6:45 Lucas peed in his potty chair!!! We have had it out for a couple weeks and he sits on it clothed everytime i use the restroom, and right before bath he sits on the potty chair nakey to get him used to it. I wasn't planning to really start trying to teach him until after my sis and john leave but i wanted to give him time to get used to the chair. I never thought he would go on his own with a no pressure technique. So Proud of him!!! We'll see what happens now i may have to adjust my plan a lil!

Fall Fun

It's been an unusual fall out here in Kansas. the weather has been nice sunny and in the 70's. so we've had some time to get out and play. These are just a few shots of Lucas enjoying the leaves. He thinks it's great fun to stomp on them and listen to them crackle.

also having nothing to do with Lucas at all, Hugo got attacked by some sort or I'm assuming wasp and his whole face swelled up. I cannot resist putting the pic's up. Trust me at the moment this was no laughing matter, the pictures don't even show how bad it really has. but this not being his first run in with wasps i knew what to do and he was back to normal by the next day. and now that he is fine i find the pictures to be quite amusing.

Daddy's Train Show

Greg put together a big train show in Wichita this year. We didn't really know what it was he was putting his time into until Lucas and I wasn't to go see it all. It was quite a show! It was a big building and just filled with track and trains. Lucas loved it and was saying "choo chooo" through the whole thing. I am posting this a little late but the date is correct on here. How ever i can tell you since this show he picks trains out of everything he loves them and always says "choo choo" when he sees one. I think daddy is going to have some fun when Lucas gets a little older. I just hope i can keep my kitchen train free!

Lions and Tigers and ..... Monkeys ????

We had a great Halloween!
We started it off by taking a few pic's of our lil monkey at our house. We couldn't resist putting his duck jersey on even though it didn't really go with it at all. it was game day and it was a big game so we couldn't mess with that. So he was an Oregon monkey!

Then we met up with some of our friends who's lil guy is a couple months older then Lucas. He was dressed up as mickey mouse. and we all went to the Hutchinson zoo to trick or treat. We took Lucas in his wagon, and i dressed it up a bit for the occasion. i put some green fabric over the top and cut it a lil to somewhat look like leaves, and he was equipped with bananas and a few other monkey stuffed animals to keep him company. I swear the whole town was at the zoo. It was packed! We had a good time cruzin through. Lucas attracted a lot of attention, he even got his picture taken for the radio stations web page.

After the zoo we headed to get some pizza and bananas! we went back home and ate our dinner, then headed out to trick or treat the neighborhood.

one last shot with momma.

We got done about 8:30 and Lucas was in a great mood the whole time. It was a long day for him and he was a trooper. Lucas headed off to bed and then Greg and i watched the Ducks stomp USC. it doesn't get much better! We just had so much fun taking our lil guy out and about. he was so funny doing his monkey noise all day. and watching his reflection in what ever he could find it in.
