Oliver turns 4!! And more!!

Ok, so this is ALMOST a month late. But, my goal for getting this up was within a month of his b-day, so I'm doing just fine by my book.:) We had such a fun day together- doing all of Oliver's favorite things: library, pool, Provo Bakery for a doughnut, lots and lots of treats, and hamburgers for dinner. If it were up to me, I would have just stuck some candles in a cake and called it good. But, thanks to Aunt Julie, Oliver got balloons, a motorcycle for the top of his cake, and even a few more presents. (I'm not a big , extravagant birthday person, never have been, probably never will be.) Beau, Amy, Seth, and Julie all joined us for burgers and cake and it was a really great day for my sweet, little Oliver.
Oliver really is one of the sweetest, most tender boys. He loves to snuggle and give loves. He is very creative and can draw houses, cars, and trucks better than his Mom. He also knows how to write his entire alphabet (thank you, Super Why). He loves music and can pick up a tune and memorize a song within just a few times of hearing it. He's a very good imitator, too, just like his Daddy. He loves his little sister, Amelia and they play so well together (most of the time). He is VERY social- loves to play with other kids- girl, boy, younger, or older. He is such a handsome, fun little guy and we love him soooooo much!

What could that be...??

A new bike!!


On another note, we gave Provo a good try, but after 3 months, we decided it wasn't for us and so we made the move up to American Fork. So far, we LOVE it. Our ward is awesome, we live in a cul-de-sac with tons of kids to play with, and it's so green and pretty here. Another exciting note:

I know some of you had your doubts about our little chickadee walking, but at the ripe age of 18 months, and only one week after entering nursery, she is really doing it.
