Friday Night

Oliver had a great day at school!  This evening we went to our favorite place, World Market!  Its just fun to look at everything there, especially during Christmas time!  And they always have really good deals!  The ornaments are all 25% off right now!  And we had a special coupon too!  Yippie!!!

We both picked out another animal for our animal tree and Oliver picked some sweet little ornaments for Y teacher gifts!  Friday nights are fun!

He always runs in ahead of Mommy!

Fancy silver/white ornaments!


Oliver kept finding big animals everywhere.
Mommy said, "No" about 20 times!

Oliver caught Mommy picking out her ornament.

This is the one she really, really wanted.

First day of December tomorrow!

We love waking up on Wednesdays!  Yippie for the donut shop!  We had fun eating our donuts together!

Happy Wednesday!


Christmas sprinkles!

Oliver's Donut.

Mommy's Donut hole.
(Plain and simple, seriously.) 

Mommy's Coffee.
(Deep and dark, seriously.)  

Cute beans!

Oliver is off with his Daddy after school.  Mommy will see her little donut eater on Friday afternoon.  She is missing him already.

Oliver had a good day at school!  When Mommy picked her little guy up he was a King!  One of the Y teachers made Oliver a crown!  We came home and played, did some homework, and tried to rest.

Happy Tuesday!
He looks ready to fight someone, but he
wasn't, he was just trying to keep his crown
from falling off his head!  

At home, Oliver wanted Mommy to put his gloves on
 and try to catch his poisonous snake.

She wasn't successful.  
(Oh well, she'll keep trying.)
The venom only put Mommy out for about a minute.

(We practiced "evil eyes" today.)

And Oliver decorated a Christmas Light Bulb for 
school!  We also put some ornaments on our trees!

We love Tuesday evenings together!

Monday Swim

Oliver had a good day at school!  Mommy was able to pick him up a little early and so he had some time to collect bugs in the backyard!  Then we were off for swimming at the Y!

Getting our bracelets! 

Before swim we did some homework in the lobby!
We were very efficient and successful!  
Oliver is learning his sight words and is
working very hard on recognizing numbers.
Practice, practice, practice!

Since he did so well with his homework, Mommy
let him go to his rocket on his reading program.
He craves time on the computer to work
on the reading program!  He wishes he could
take all these items out of the screen!

It was very calm in the pool tonight!

Mommy had to help old man to the door.

(Sweet dreams!)

Mommy picked up Oliver this evening and we stopped at the lake.  It was dark and a little spooky but we wanted to check it out!  Oliver ate dinner at the picnic table under the Oak tree and we chatted.  Then we headed for home!  Next time we will bring a flashlight!

Leading the way to the picnic table!

We had fun chatting there!  Oliver was
full of animal stories!  

Like about this snake he brought home!!!

He was pretty tired tonight and had a pouty
transition to coming home. Oliver's cornea was scratched by
 some flying mulch this weekend.  It is
all better now, but he has had a pretty eventful
few days!  He is falling asleep here!

Sweet baby.
(Inner peace.)

Donut Wednesday

Yippie Donut Wednesday!  We woke up early and headed for the donut shop!  Oliver thought it was funny that we got to come home after our donut adventure!  We had a nice time together!  

He played when we got home, helped Mommy with the babies, and cuddled with Mommy for a little bit!  Mommy has enjoyed having Oliver home this week!  He has been a good listener and very helpful!

Happy Wednesday!  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

Foggy morning donut shopping.

Monkey on a mission!

Jelly Donuts.

Oliver's Donut.

(Insert Photo of Mommy's Donut Hole here.)
She forgot to take a picture of it!!!

Mommy's Coffee.
(More now please.)

Oliver at home snacking on pop chips and listening
to Stories From Sideways School!  He loves
listening to books on tape!  Yippie!

Oliver is off with his Daddy now for the Thanksgiving weekend.  Mommy misses her little bird already.  She will see him at 5:00 on Sunday!  Enjoy your Thanksgivings!

Christmas Decorations

Oliver had a really great, active day at home!  He played a lot, read a lot, helped Mommy with the babies, and even went for a wagon ride/walk!  In the evening we started to unpack our Christmas decorations!  Mommy would like Oliver to see all of it and be apart of putting up a little bit of it!  

We had fun looking at all our goodies and also taking a break at World Market tonight!  World Market is so much fun!

Working on our new tree that we
adopted from the Estate Sale.

Dusty Christmas boxes!  Mommy
thinks there must be one more out in
the garage!  She is missing some
important things!

Our little evening break!


You should have heard Oliver's
gasp when he saw this lollypop!  

Back home we sat together and ate
dinner!  Then Oliver went on an
animal rampage!  Playing, talking,
having Mommy help with jars!
While Mommy tried to work on
our Christmas stuff!  

He eventually settled down!  With his
animals of course.

Mommy just did some easy decorating tonight!

Our tree needs lights, probably some more
trim and this one is going to be our animal
tree!  So it needs some animals!!!

We set up Santa in the hallway!
(He says he will protect us!)

Happy Tuesday!
