A week of celebrations!

June is always going to be a busy month of celebrations in our family! Luke's birthday is June 12, our anniversary is June 15, and Father's Day is always shortly thereafter! We celebrated Luke's birthday this past weekend with his family who came into town for a couple of days. We went out to eat at a Japanese steakhouse because we thought Anna Kate might enjoy the entertainment of watching the food be cooked right at our table. She thought most of it was pretty fun, but she wasn't too sure about the big fire! Here's a picture of all of us after dinner.

When we got home we enjoyed a wonderful key lime cake made by a sweet lady in our church, and then Luke opened his presents. Here's a picture of the birthday boy!

(If you can't tell, there are 2 candles on the left, and 7 candles on the right...)

And, unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of it, but Anna Kate made her Daddy a birthday poster and we bought him some balloons to decorate his office EARLY Sunday morning before he got to church!

Today is our 4th anniversary, but since it's a Wednesday and we have lots of church activities tonight, we decided we would do something special this weekend. Here's a picture of us on our wedding day 4 years ago.

These first four years of marriage have been wonderful and full of lots of changes for us! We sat down this morning and talked about all that we have done in the last four's a brief little list:

~ We have lived in 2 different states
~ We have lived in 1 apartment, 1 townhouse, 2 rental houses, and we are about to close on our first home in a month (Lord-willing!)
~ We have, between the two of us, had 6 different jobs
~ We (well, mostly Luke!) have earned a 96-hour masters degree
~ And we now have (almost) 2 children!

How crazy is that?!? We are so grateful for all that God has done in these early formative years of our marriage and are excited to see what the coming years will bring!
