They finally found it in my bathroom! Ta Da! A new Lego castle, to go with the approximately 20 other Lego castles we seem to have. That boy is a Lego castle building machine. I don't know how much he cared about this particular castle, but he sure wanted all the pieces to serve his larger purposes.
Another collecting need got satisfied: sport jerseys. He's sporting Graham Harrell's number here, and he also got an Otsuka Ranger's jersey, although the place I ordered it from sent the wrong size--a child's small. It might have fit Emma.
And here's the Lego castle. Luke always builds it the proper way once, and then never again.
I was able to take Luke out for a birthday date to the Mexican Inn. Yum! Then he had his usual birthday dinner that I make: cajun shrimp alfredo, fruit salad, fried okra, and homemade cheesecake. Fattening, fattening, fattening, but only once a year!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LUCAS!!
