Olive's Walkathon

On November 13th, Olive and her 5th grade buddy Layan will be walking in her school's annual Walk-a-thon fundraiser! To all of our family members who donated - thank you sooooo much! If you would like to donate - email or text me! Unfortunately I recently found out that the "laps" she will be doing are not like the track laps we did as a kid…… the $10 per lap that my brothers and sister did could turn into $100/$200!!!  (Secretly I hope she does more)

Olive's Birthday - Disneyland

The only thing Olive wanted for her birthday was to go to Disneyland with Harper. We took her out of school on Thursday and headed to Anaheim for the day. Unfortunately, it was at 90% capacity and we had to wait hours in line for the rides. We decided to leave and come back another time when it was less crowded.

Happy Birthday Olive

I still can't believe my little baby is 5 today. How did the time go so fast? I can't even explain how much I adore her. Happy Happy Birthday Olive! You really are a special little girl.

Update - Olive & Buster


- Absolutely OBSESSED with daddy's old train set. Pretty much every hour of every day he is building tracks.
- Spends 5 minutes each night picking out trains to take to bed.
- Loves to have his tummy rubbed before he goes to sleep.  As soon as I put him in his crib, he lifts his shirt up, points and says "Mommy….RUUUUUB!"
- His meltdowns are getting more intense. I thought for sure they would get better the more his vocabulary grew….but it doesn't seem like that is the case.
- Now calls Grandma Carolyn "mamas" just like my mom. It's pretty much the cutest thing ever.
- Rough housing with his sister is his favorite past-time. He split his lip open yesterday tackling her on the carpet!
- Will pretty much try anything to eat. 
- Going pee on the potty on a regular basis. Now we are working on him telling me when he has to go!
- Favorite movie at the moment is 'Cars'.
-Still has issues sharing. Believe me - it's a problem.


- LOVES her new school. She's so happy when the weekend is over and her week starts back up.
- Has about 4 boyfriends. Every week there is a new boy that she wants to introduce me to on the playground.
- Still loves to color. Her drawing skills seriously impress me. I want her to draw me pictures all day long!
- Learning how to read. I'm crossing my fingers she will love books as much as I do.
- Wants to sleep with Andrew's pillow every night.
- Swimming like a fish. If she could be in the water 24/7 - she would!
- Still a picky eater. But little by little she is trying more and more.
- Prefers her hightop converse over her ballet flats.
- Favorite song is 'Riptide' by Vance Joy.
- Definitely not a rule breaker. She prides herself on listening and behaving in class.

Happy Birthday Levi!

A few weekends ago we celebrated Levi's 1st birthday! I cannot believe that little peanut is one already….time is flying by waaaaaaaay too fast. It was so good to see everyone. Now that we all have kids - it's harder to get together. Happy Birthday Levi.  We love you!

Happy Birthday Auntie Lindsay!

Last weekend we headed to Santa Barbara for Auntie's big birthday bash! We even let Olive stay up waaaaaay past her bedtime so she could go to the party. I think her favorite part was the Photo Booth. Happy Happy Birthday Auntie Lindsay!!
