Felt Pokemon

One day Oliver just kept asking for a new Pokemon named Dedenne. I kept asking how he was going to get it and he'd say, you are going to make it! So I finally found the energy to try it out. Now we have a Dedenne and a Pokedex.

Merry Christmas 2016!

So this year we didn't get anywhere close to getting family pictures taken, so I decided that our Christmas picture could be very simple and display the cute ornaments that I have spent way too much time making. Oliver is in love with Pokemon, so what started as making 3 Pokemon ornaments turned into 16 Pokemon ornaments and 8 other random ornaments, plus another 14 to give away as gifts. Whoo. But they are pretty cute. You'll notice in these pictures that these boys have the craziest smiles, if you can even call them that. They look so cute posing since they are saying over and over "cheese and bacon" and "cheese and hamburgers", but the pictures seem to only catch the crazy parts of the phrase. Oh well.


 Teddy and Oliver also had dentist appointments. Oliver did great as usual. I've never had a problem with him. But it was Teddy's first one, and although he looks like he cooperated great, he didn't. He was wiggling all over the place and only let them look in his mouth for a total of 2 seconds. He needs a frenulectomy though, so I  wanted to bring him in to make sure that he really needed one. The little thing that connects your top lip to the gum needs a little bit of laser trimming. Which of course he'll need anesthesia to do. They said we should get it done before he turns 5 to keep from having a permanent gap between his front two teeth since the skin thing goes all the way between his teeth.

Fall and Winter

Remember last year when I posted about all the leaves falling off of our big tree all on the same day? Well, it happened again. So fun to go out and have so many leaves to play in. It really is a kids dream.

These are some random pictures that I found on my camera. I think they are a good 8 months old. But they are cute.

Oliver's birthday party

Oliver requested a transformer themed birthday party. I was really excited for this party because it was going to be super easy and really fun for everyone. Cupcakes and a bounce house. Well, due to a tornado the day before, a shed and branches all over our yard and rain, I had to cancel the bouncehouse. We still kept it simple. Just cupcakes, cake walk, opening presents, playing with toys and pizza. I couldn't have done it without the help of Carrie corralling the kids. It was so nice to have grandma and grandpa here to help. And Aurelia and Summer to take pictures for us. And we kept it to just an hour and a half. I think all of the kids loved it. And Oliver scored some really amazing presents. I think he ended up getting every toy that he had been begging for. Today he spent the last of the birthday money.  I think there were14 kids total.
