We’ve had a number of other celebrations around our house recently, but we’ve been so busy that we haven’t had a chance to tell you about them.

For Lillie’s birthday, we celebrated with a strawberry cheesecake (I grew the strawberries all by myself!) Most of her birthday presents were scrapbooking supplies, although I helped Ben get the present he wanted to give her: “Licorice and Chocolate.”

Our Independence Day picnic turned out to be quite successful, thanks to Lisa’s festive decorations and everyone’s fabulous food. Mom Lucas was able to enjoy the holiday with all three of her daughters.

A few days later, it was my turn to grow older. Lillie made me a fresh strawberry pie with real whipped cream. YUM!! I’ll be busy with the reading material I received for the next several months.

  1. What a great picture of all the Lucas girls with their Mom. It looks like you had a wonderful time while waiting for Baby Ricks.

  2. Congratulations Lillie! We are glad to hear of the safe arrival of your little girl. I love the both the names and can’t wait to hear what you decided on. I have a Hannah myself. She is going on eight years old. I wish you the best and plenty of sleep.
