Fall Photo Comparison

Facebook has an "On this Day" feature that shows you things that you posted years ago.  
Today, this little gem popped up from last year.

I can't believe how much he has changed from last fall and it makes me sad to even think about what he will look like next fall.

Kansas State Basketball

My mom had never been to a Division II basketball game so when Riley got some tickets from work, we knew just who we would take.  My family has always been KU fans, so I wasn't even sure if they even owned any purple.  (They actually did, but we didn't know this and had K-State shirts waiting for them when they arrived at our house.)

Riley, Oliver, my parents, and I all enjoyed the game together.  
I can't even remember who they played, but I'm pretty sure they won.

Snuggle Baby

With each passing day, it seems that Oliver gives less and less snuggles.  The few times that we actually get snuggles, we sure soak them in.  Usually his snuggles are reserved for giraffey, but lately he has really liked his bear that Uncle Shelby and Aunt Jaime brought him back from Slovenia.

If anyone gets snuggles from Oliver, it is usually daddy.
And I'll admit, it makes me pretty jealous!

Friendsgiving (and a Grandparents weekend for Oliver)

A group of my high school friends and I got together for a "Friendsgiving" and what a wonderful idea it was!  We all met at Jessica's house to eat, drink, and be merry.  We had a great time and it was great to catch up.

I made a weekend out of my friendsgiving since I didn't have school on Friday due to Veterans Day.  I did some major Christmas shopping on Friday and stayed the night with Kerby.  We did some more shopping on Saturday, which of course meant, Ikea!

While I was away, Riley was also away pheasant hunting.  This meant that Ollie got to spend the weekend in Horton.  From the looks of the photos that I received, I think he had a great time!  (And from the way he has been acting the last few days, I think he got a bit spoiled!)

They went to the Veterans Day Parade...

...and the Veterans Day dinner.
He helped do chores and now says "Cow."  (These are the ones that Hudson so sweetly named Oliver and Hudson.)

My mom did some puppy sitting, so Oliver was sure to check out the "pup".

Ollie likes to sit at the table like a big kid.  (Often, at home he wants out of his booster seat so he can go sit in a regular chair.  When did this little baby grow up?!)

On my way back home, I met my parents in Topeka to pick Ollie up.  We enjoyed Cici's before heading back our separate ways.  Boy, was I glad to see this little face.

Potty Party

In the last week or two Ollie has expressed some interest in the potty.  He will say "poop" often before he poops.  He also has a very serious poop face that clearly notifies us about what is soon to occur.

So we have started to sit him on the potty chair.
He likes it and is usually all smiles.

Last night Ollie actually pooped on the potty for the first time.  WooWhoo!
  Daddy gets the credit since I was in the shower when it happened.
Perhaps we will give this whole potty training thing a good run when we are home on Christmas break.  Maybe.  We will see.

Election Day 2016

This cutie and I voted today after school.

A kind lady offered to take our photo :)  
I know in the blink of an eye, this little guy will be voting too.  He is growing way too fast for this momma's liking.

Fall Photos

I finally had a chance to edit our family photos from a couple of weekends ago.  I'd say we got some pretty good ones :)

We went out and took some fall pictures of Ollie just this week.  He was happy and cooperative so it made for a quick little shoot.
