Goodbye February...

You will not be missed. I know it's Leap Day tomorrow, so I'll probably crawl in a hole until it's over. This month has been super busy, I've felt like I could hardly breath at times. So I'll just show some pictures of some things we've been up to that I actually took pictures of. I don't have any pics from Valentine's Day, but Brady did, so you'll have to go over to his blog to see what we did. 

Ollie's cousins were in town. Since Ollie is walking this time, he had a lot of fun running around with them. (Rafe, Brady and Ollie)

Riley and Susan got married!

I finished my first drawing since before I got married. Sad huh. And I'm a little rusty.

My cousin Whitney got married to Tony. And it was fun to see all my Buckley family.

We took a trip to the library. Oliver fit perfectly in those little chairs.

We walked around Bass Pro Shop and Ollie tried out a camping chair. It was pretty cute.

We watched the Oscars, of course. We were pretty excited to see The Artist win best picture. Brady and I loved that movie so much. We were completely giddy when we saw it. I love that The Artist was made and that it worked so well in this day and age. Other wins I loved was Bret Mckenzie winning for Best Original Song, and Midnight in Paris winning the Best Original Screenplay. I believe Midnight in Paris was made for me, it was funny, very well written, took place in Paris, and the 1920's (my favorite decade). I watched it twice while we had it from Netflix.

I guessed 18 of 24 winners correctly. I got all of the short film categories right, don't ask how. But Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin threw me off my game.

We survived one year with Oliver! Hurray! Ollie turned 1 yesterday and although I never thought I would do a party for a one year old, it turns out we had one. We invited those who loved him most, our families, and we had some delicious pizza and smashed cake in Ollie's face (just kidding, he did that to himself).

We hung out in the morning until Dad woke up.
He's an expert clapper. Waiting to get the party started.

Eating his way to the presents

The Birthday Cake decorated by yours truly. It's Yo Gabba Gabba, in case you can't tell. I'm actually really proud of it considering I've never decorated a cake before and all I had to do it with was a knife and a kabob skewer.
We sang "Happy Birthday"
He didn't like it.
The cake eating begins.
Not sharing with Dad.
Oh my...
It was a lot worse than it looks.
Cleaned up and ready for bed.
 The cake was the first time Oliver really had a sugary treat in his short life. So he stayed up way past his bedtime on a sugar high. He loved the cake. He even took a piece right off of Aunt Sarah's plate without a second thought and took a huge bite out of it. Funny kid. 

Thank you so much for all of our family who came to share in the fun.
