christmas morning

this year we decided to spend christmas morning together in our own house and have a little family christmas, before heading over to my parents house. ollie isn't always a morning person and was NOT into opening presents...we put on some cartoons and gave him a treat for breakfast while jonathan & i exchanged gifts

jonathan's amazing gift wrapping skills:) we tend to use brown bags and newspaper a lot in out house.
as you can see ollie was way more into cartoons, picking his nose and eating a cookie than opening presents...
he finally agreed to look in his stocking and open the 3 little gifts we got him

merry christmas

fun family (of 3) day

the time is soon approaching when it will no longer be just the 3 of us. i tried to get us to take a vacation before baby comes, but that didn't work out:( so i thought the least we could do is make a trip to "the happiest place on earth" as a fun adventure for just the 3 of us...ollie probably won't remember, but we will and he loved it...and i am savoring these days of just hanging out with ollie...tantrums and all:)
visiting ollie's favorite "CARS"...mater and lightening mcqueen

bumper cars with daddy...expectant mothers not permitted:)


studying the map deciding where to go

snack time

finally a ride i could go on! ollie loves going in circles with the elephants...we also rode the teacups together...loved that one too:)

goofy!!! always my favorite.

hopefully the one and only time this kid is in jail...

he loves to play the piano

another ride i couldn't go on:( i wish you could see his face. he begged to go on it, then got off and said, "no like the fast train!"

ollie recognized the golden gate bridge- thanks to aunt nessy for lots of san francisco books:)

just the 3 of one dude with awesome hair. this could be my favorite family photo:)

costumes & candy day

aka halloween
ollie loves the UPS truck and gets really excited whenever we see one. so i thought this was a good costume for him- and it was easy to make:) today we saw a line of those famous brown trucks on the freeway and ollie said, "look at all the ups trucks!....trick-or-treat!"

"savvy girl" was a pumpkin:)
off to trick-or-treat
ollie loved trick-or-treating and getting candy...i have enjoyed eating it all;)

i have said it before and i will say it again- i love this time of year and all that comes with pumpkins!
here are some photos of our trip to the pumpkin patch.

counting all the pumpkins... ollie really wanted to take home "a big one!"
so many pumpkins....

ollie got really excited when he saw this mickey mouse scarecrow...kind of creepy, but he liked it

ollie had a so much fun and didn't want to leave...he had a much better time this year, than his first trip to the pumpkin patch:)
