Oliver and His Ball

Oliver loves this ball more than anything. He takes it with him everywhere he goes. And yes, that includes taking it to church. We had Stake Conference today, and rather than ruin his morning, I let him bring his ball. He held it tight and didn't let it go. He sleeps with it, takes it in the car, and would do almost anything to take it outside. He says the word "Ball" about a million times a day. Anything in the shape of a circle counts as a ball-- doorbells, the letter O, clocks, lights, etc. He has a one track mind.


  1. We had Stake Conference today too, but our kids are sick so I got to go all by myself! I was able to sit and listen to the entire meeting! :) I didn't know you had an Oliver until I started reading your blog. The last time John and I saw you guys, Mabel was a baby! Both of your kids are adorable and I love reading your blog!

  2. How is it that Oliver looks so much older than when we saw him last weekend?

    To answer your questions from Abbie's blog, the kitchen color is "Nantucket Mist" and the bedroom color is "Yacht Harbor", both by Behr. Very New England, I know. We still have at least a little of every color left over, so if you want to see what it would look like on the wall, let us know and we'll bring the extra next time we come up. And no, I'm not vacuuming, I'm sucking up the little things that fall off of our mesquite tree. Well, I guess it is kind of like yard vacuuming.

  3. My vote is for the true desert landscape, it's the most natural, I think it will look really nice with your new house.

  4. Okay I am pretty sure I left comments on your blog yesterday, but who knows where the heck they went!
    Anyway, I think sweet little Mabel needs to move to Indiana where there are no scoprions (on the ceiling, no less!) and Andrew and Uncle Neal can move to Arizona!
