Little Cruiser

video
so luke has been walking off and on for 2 months now, but only the last 2 weeks has he REALLY gotten it dow. He is a pro now and goes anywhere. this is at church in his very handsome new easter shirt.
He was hilarious in church today ! there was a family sitting behind us... youngest child was 16, and they were in LOVE with Luke, he was quite the entertainer. He would sit there and do his awesome new laugh which is very hard to explain... he just lets it roll out of his throat and it is one continuous sound... anyways so they would laugh at him, which made him want more so he would duck down and explode back into view and grab his cookies and give them to his friends behind us, he would grab any object and slash it back and forth in the air while doing his victory yell, he would get his cookies .. smile at them then quickly shove them into my mouth like it was all a performance. anyways it went on all through sacrament and we all had tears coming out our eyes from laughing so hard... silently! He is getting the taste for positive attention and LOVES it!! I love his sense of humor.

home sweet bare essentials home





Here is a little sneak peek into our new temporary home here in the windy city. if you notice in each picture you will see that yes I am living in a house with NO decor and nothing to please the eyes... however I am perfectly content so long as I am with my family. Chris is working very hard to get the office running like a well oiled machine, and I have to say this may be our best year yet! the office is very promising and Chris made a comment last night that he has not been this excited about area in a long time. so I will keep you posted on the goings on of the Orvins.

Lukes 1st birthday


This was Lukes 1st birthday and we had so much fun. the night before me and Chris stayed up blowing up 140 balloons and hanging streamers. when He woke up the next morning he absolutely LOVED it! the balloons were his favorite until he had his cake later that night..... and Oh my word the kid LOVES cake!
he was a little shy at first but then he dug in full board with both hands. He tried sharing with the people next to him watching by shoving his cake covered fists at their mouths. haha we loved the whole day and cannot believe he is already 1 year old! time fly's when you are busy taking care of the cutest busiest boy in the world.
