Donut Wednesday

We had a quiet Donut Wednesday.  

Oliver is off with his Daddy and Scout.  Mommy will see him on Sunday.  She misses him.

We had a nice evening.  It is so nice to not have to worry about homework, research, papers, and deadlines for Mommy's master's degree. Oliver went to jhi jitzu today, Mommy is calling it JJ because it's hard for her to say.  He loves it, he went to a new place that is a bit more structured and he'll be signing up there!
Just a note, our gardener is finally starting to listen.
He made the rock path Mommy asked for 6 months ago.

Warm ups.

Sign.  We'll be there.

We decorated, but first Mommy pressed the spirit meter.

She got blah-la-la-la-la.  She felt it.

Until she started dancing and Oliver started

She finished decorating the trees!

Oliver fell asleep on the couch.
Merry Christmas!

We had a magical night at home.  Mommy was hoping magic would help decorate the trees.  It didn't work.  She did get all the batteries in our Hallmark Snowman collection.  Now they are all singing and dancing!

She found the magical power to read a few
pages to Oliver.  We are so tired!  

Platform 9 3/4 set up.  

Our snowmen!

He thinks Mommy is crazy.  But
that's a good thing.

Still not ready, but getting there.

Busy, busy day.  Mommy is too tired.  Oliver had a good day keeping himself entertained.   So busy, no picture of him and no ornaments on our trees yet.

It's Christmas time, for sure in our minds.

Cub Scout Pack Parade Float
We came late.  Mommy has no idea how to help
with cutting out wood, etc.

Cute Logan!

Oliver had fun playing.

But was not enthusiastic about helping.

Rick helped Oliver a little.  

The theme is route 66!  So fun!  Our float is a hotrod!
Right down our alley.

These two were the last scouts there,
while we were cleaning up.

We went shopping and decorated at home...
then visited Grady for a few minutes.

Here's his new chair...

and some passes he got for braking his
leg at the trampoline park.  He was
cautious and it was caused by a 
bigger boy.  So crazy.  

Ouch.  He's got to do a bit of sitting for awhile.

 We came home after to open all our Hallmark ornament
boxes and get them ready for our trees and watch Elf:

and round

and round...

it's never ending...

So are these....

Mommy wishes she could hold this baby one more time.

He could not stop laughing after Buddy the
Elf drank a whole bottle of Coca Cola in one
gulp then did the most gigantic burp, EVER!

Black Friday

Mommy participated in Black Friday at World Market, her tradition.  Oliver went fishing with his Daddy.

Mommy got her gift!  We'll be back this weekend
for the free movie tickets!

Target too....

Can you guess what Mommy got for Oliver.
Oliver met Mommy at Target, while his 
Daddy took the big secret box. Yay,
for finding someone to put it together. 

We needed chicken food.  Oliver
thinks he needs a duck.

Cute, but NO!

Oliver got something at World Market instead.
BOGO on toys...

He was busy with his toy and listening to Shiloh's
Christmas story, while Mommy decorated.

Here's his toy....

It just keeps going and going and going.....
