The play date!
Luke and Cayden can be rather creative in their play and
 that's a very good thing (to quote Martha Stewart).
With older twin sisters, playing at Cayden's house can offer 
a treasure trove of fun dress-up clothes to choose from.
This is one of the most loveable things about Luke...his creativity!  

The summer months are winding down and the Atlanta children have headed back to school. Summer vacations seem so much shorter these days. It used to be that Labor Day marked the end of summer vacation and now everyone begins school in early August!

I have to thank Miss Kelly for snapping this adorable picture!
 Oh, how this makes his Maine Grandma smile! The innocence of childhood!

This was my back to school gift for Luke!
 I thought these were so fun to use for his morning breakfast or after school snack!
 He can choose four different Kellog's Corn Flake children! Very vintage!

We wish you a very happy and successful school year ahead Luke!
 Happy Parents

    1. I so agree Roxy....I would hide all of the new electronic gadgets and provide a trunk full of books and dress up clothes for all of them! I just love it! Hope you are having a great summer love!
