Click HERE to see yesterday's post about "Luke Randoms" (and sort of why I'm doing them).
This morning was filled with some simple "hanging out at home" as well as the normal Monday Morning Grocery Shopping for the Friesen Household.
After I got out of the shower and was getting ready, Luke hung out a bit with me in the bedroom.
This following photo is not posed....he was very much watching Elmo on Sesame Street at the time.
There's one big thing to look for in this photo, and it's really only important probably to Marc and me....
If you look closely underneath his sippy cup, you'll see a coaster.
"Why is that important," you might ask?
Nearly all of the time, when I go and take a shower, I have something really cold or something really hot with me (today -- it was hot tea in a regular ol' mug). So, I nearly always take a coaster with my drink of choice with me in the bathroom. Luke obviously has observed that.
When I got out of the shower, he immediately ran and got his sippy cup and brought back a coaster.
Apparently now, one, including Luke, must ALWAYS use a coaster with his or her beverage in our home :) Thanks Luke for that observation!
While I was finishing up getting ready, Luke did his usual and got our shoes out of our closet. Usually, he puts on Marc's shoes. Today, however, he was putting on my Keen sandals.
Later on, in the kitchen, Luke was caught looking through his Papa Book. The Papa Book is a homemade book I made him. It has photos of close family members and close friends. I created it so that Luke would learn to identify and say names of people who we associate with quite a bit. It's been a very good thing for him. We call it his Papa Book since generally, he's wanting to see Papa's picture (my dad).
(And Andrea -- in this first photo, he's looking at Ava's picture).
Then, we headed to Wal-Mart to grocery shop....
And yes, that's Marc's University of Texas visor around his neck -- a favorite of Luke's.
When we got home, I had Luke decorate a birthday card for his Grandma Friesen (Marc's mom)....Today's her birthday, and I'm a day late on getting cards out to her. And nope -- I wasn't crafty enough to actually make a card for her (I'm not the crafty type). So, Luke decorated a store-bought card -- which I know she will be very pleased with his decorating :)
And, as you can see, Luke did his decorating with a pile of his little cars very much near him.
Here's the final product -- I did my best (unsuccessfully) to keep stickers and crayon marks OFF of words in the card. But again, Marc's mom won't mind (and I'm 99% sure of that).
And very soon after that, we got that card in the mail....She should receive it tomorrow.
(Don't worry -- Marc's mom will not see this card ahead of time because it's on this blog....They're not internet users).
