Ollie turns 3!!

Our sweet little Ollie turned three on March 22nd. We had a great day together as a family. We started the day with cinnamon rolls and scrambled eggs for breakfast and a couple of presents. At lunch time, we opened a few more presents. We took the plasma car out for a spin in the afternoon. The boys had a blast. Ollie did a great job taking turns with Mason, even with his exciting new toys. Thanks everyone for all the great gifts! All of this excitement was followed by a nap for one and all.

All week, Ollie reminded me that he wanted pizza and cake for his birthday dinner. At 4:30 I was sitting down to the computer to order the pizza. The boys ran in, just in the nick of time, to tell me that they actually wanted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner. I can only imagine that they were thinking "the quicker we eat dinner, the sooner we eat cake!"
They were right. A few short minutes later we were singing, finishing the presents and eating chocolate cake. I was taken a little off guard by the sudden dinner/cake/celebration so as you can see in the picture I am still in my napping clothes :)

Thanks Grandma Girl and Pops for the plasma car! We figured out right after we took this that both boys can fit on the car at once. It was a REAL party after that!

Warning: Photo below contains disturbing images.
Namely, my huge 8 months pregnant, headless body.

Fortunately, the picture also contains two super cute little boys who had a great day!

Three things that we love about Oliver:

1. His big brown eyes.

2. His enthusiasm about everything. If you are ever feeling low, just come talk to Ollie. Yesterday while I was cleaning the bathroom he came in and said, "Mommy, this bathroom looks BEAUTIFUL!! Great job." I have never felt such a sense of accomplishment :)

3. He is my snuggler. Mason was always too on the go to snuggle. Matt is not much of a snuggler. But I can always count on Ollie to curl up on my lap and give me a squeeze (unless it is scripture time, then there is NO holding still!)

We love you Oliver and hope you had a great 3rd birthday!
