Eighth Birthday Party

It blows my mind that our Luke is now eight years old.  Time does fly when you are having fun!

This was, by far, the BEST birthday party Luke has ever had.  It was his idea to have his birthday party at his karate school, and it was a wonderful idea!

The kids did a lot of karate things, but one of my favorite parts of the party was when each kid was given the chance to beat the birthday boy.

It is not everyday that your allowed to whip up on your friends and cousins.

And while it was great fun to see each child come up and beat Luke and see Luke battle back.

It was REAL good fun to see them all gang up on my Luke.

Getting ready.......


They were after him!!  That one in stripes on the end is out for the kill!

But, do not feel sorry for him.  

My father-in-law got the money shot that shows how much Luke loved this beat down.

Just look at that smile!!  That is the best picture ever!

After the beat down, each boy was able to break a board.


After each boy had broken a board, Mr. Mike had two of Luke's cousins come and lay down.  

I had no idea this was coming.

Holy Cow!!!  

I was so happy Luke broke that board....and his cousins were okay!

And then it was time for presents!

Aunt Melanie was in town from California and was able to come to the party.  Luke was so excited!

And Grandpa Stewart, Grandma Stewart, and Aunt Charity came into town!!  Grandma has kissed him bunches since they arrived...and it did not stop for the party.

I'm not sure who is more excited about that gun, Luke or his Grandpa Petty.

The party then got more wild and crazy as we all sang Happy Birthday to Luke while he whipped the nunchucks over his head.  

All the kids had so much fun and the adults had a blast watching and laughing.

Thank you to all who came out for Luke's party!!  I'm so sorry I did not get pictures of everyone who was there.  I was having such a fun time watching the kids that I forgot to take more pictures!

We all love you Luke!!
