Halloween Donut Wednesday

Happy Donut Halloween Wednesday!  Mommy woke up Oliver with those words this morning and he sat straight up and gave Mommy a big hug!  Sweetness!  Oliver and Mommy had a spooky time eating our sweet donuts this morning!  Oliver was dressed up in his Warden costume for a school parade!

Happy Halloween!

Patrolling the donut shop!

Hunting for his donut.

Got it!

Someone ordered a big Halloween donut!

Oliver's donut!

Mommy's donut hole.


Mommy's Coffee.
(More please.)

Oliver gets really into being a Warden!
He is on patrol, looking for "bad guys" in these pictures:

He makes Mommy giggle!

Oliver is off with his Daddy after school for some Trick-or-Treating fun!  Mommy also looks forward to hearing all about the Day of the Dead Celebration they will be attending at the Escondido Center for Arts tomorrow night.  Oliver is going to honor our lost loved ones and add hearts to the shrine we made together last year.  

Mommy will see Oliver Friday for another together weekend!  She misses her silly little guy!

Oliver had a good day at school!  He was VIP again!  He wears the badge with pride!  It is so so cute!
We had a nice evening at home together!

Happy Tuesday!  Almost Halloween!

Mommy's Little VIP.

Showing Mommy his pumpkin!

Oliver says his has a mean face!  He likes it though!
(Mommy loves it.  It is really sweet.)

He set up an animal store in his room!

Mommy bought the raccoon.  She had to give Oliver
her real credit card.  That is all he would accept.
He slides it through the crack in his desk!  Creative!

He was inspired to write a book about carrots
tonight!  He did an awesome job!  
Mommy likes when he writes and draws
on his own!

Monday Swim

Oliver had a good day at school!  Mommy is so glad he enjoys school!  We played at home for awhile and then went swimming for a bit at the Y!  We liked seeing the full moon tonight and driving into the misty fog by Grammie's house!  Oliver had a lot of questions about fog!  

Headed to the Y!
Picture without the flash!

Picture with the flash!  Mommy likes this one!

It was nice a warm tonight in the pool!

Raccoon eye!  There was a family of raccoons 
in our yard when we got home!  Oliver woke up
for a second and got to see them! The one in the
tree kept peeking at Mommy while she was
unloading the car!  She can hear them now
in the backyard!  

Fog, full moon, a peaceful swim and raccoons!  Busy night!
(Mommy is too tired to think!)

Sunday, October 28, 2012


Oliver and Mommy started the morning again at Grammie's house!  Mommy took a ton of pictures today, she just can't help it!

Mommy arriving from her Y break:
Lots of animals everywhere!  But her
snake made her laugh!
(She likes when it makes her laugh.)

It bit Mommy yesterday.
(Mommy feels like biting it back!)

Pumpkin Patch Again:

We spied polar bears there the other day, so we
stopped for a visit!

Oliver gets real serious on the tractor.

Sweetness....then he turned into a crazy
kid who decided he didn't want to go home
anymore, but wanted to go swimming.  
He growled like a Polar Bear.  Mommy took
him swimming, but she had been set on going home!
She may have roared like a Polar Bear too.


Once we were there we both felt better.
For some reason the Y always makes
us feel good.

 Estate Sale:

We stopped at an Estate Sale in our neighborhood.
It was the last 1/2 hour of it, so everything was
50 percent off.  Mommy went the other day
and the couple that lived there had a lot of
neat things.

Oliver enjoyed looking around.  It is weird looking 
at everything in someones home, but Mommy
and Oliver found some things that we are
happy to bring into our home.

Mommy thought this was funny!

Mommy got some books!  Grammie talked Mommy
into buying the perfect Christmas tree that they had.
Its bigger than the one we have now, Mommy got
it for only $6.  (Mommy actually needs that tree.)
We have a lot of ornaments!

Mommy for sale.  Sticker price $2, but 1/2 off! 
Good deal?

Mommy thought these pen holders were neat.
She bought them.  Oliver chose some baskets and
other containers.  He likes them for his animals!

Night Walk:

We went for our Sunday night milk walk!
We stopped at Major Market!  He loves
the lobsters!  He also loves wearing 
his Halloween costume!

Happy kid with our milk, Mommy's Inner 
Peas (she is still looking for that Inner Peace!),
and Oliver's fancy crab cheese things he liked
tasting at the sample station!

Halloween decoration!


Our pretty home lit up as we walked up!

Happy Sunday!
