family: mama ranger, baby ranger

Ollie's grandparents got him an awesome Park Ranger outfit, so I had to take him to my old employment at Sycamore Grove Park, where I was a Park Ranger for three years.  Man I miss my job, but hope someday this lil dude will want to follow in his mom's footsteps!  Isn't he cute in that uniform? (Bonus: my son has a big noggin so my Ranger hat fits him pretty good!)

if i had a million dollars: what i would wear today

it's raining and cold outside.  i don't love that fact.  i get depressed and feel like a complete slob in the rain.  remedy: beautiful dress, cozy cardigan, open toed shoes so i can feel the rain, and a cute purse.

Ollies Mustache Party

do you like ollie's unibrow?  he wouldn't keep a mustache on, but for some reason he was fine with a unibrow!

he loved the mustache cake his grandma made him!  he was having fun throwing it.  some even landed in my friends purse.  and he was so sweet and would feed himself a bite then feed me a bite. what a good little dude.  messy, but good.

jasons parents.  man i wish those were real mustaches so they could look this good everyday.

our family: jason (yes that is his real facial hair and yes it is blonde. weird right?), me, ollie

travis and kim

jessica, patrick, lisa
shenny (aka: shaun and jenny)
ian and liesl

ollie doesn't like to be held by other people.  some call it clingy.  i call it bratty.  he loves to play with other people, but if you pick him up, the tantrum starts.  kristene and kim, you are good sports.

my reno babe kimmie
emily, jon, baby scarlette
happy birthday my messy man.  yes that is the cake he is sitting in.  i think he had fun.

family: halloween, only a few weeks late...

So Halloween was a few weeks past, but I just downloaded these photos, and thought at least my mom would want to see them!  Ollie learned pretty quick how to dive bomb in on a bucket full of candy and grab a couple pieces.  This baby loves his candy!

papa calls ollie simba and chases him around like a lion

stephanie the lumberjack, ava red riding hood and grandma justin
monkey ollie, wonder woman jamie and jason as daniel pearce from the tv show perception.  kudos to whoever knows who that is!

we decided to take ollie to the oakland zoo as a belated birthday celebration!  it was boo at the zoo day so all the kids dressed up, and our little ollie dressed up like a park ranger, making his mom very proud!  he loved all the animals!  then we hit up beloved fentons with our friend kevin for some birthday ice cream, then went to a few church halloween parties.  we had a blast!
