"I go Pre-1" and Other Highlights

I have not yet recapped Thanksgiving for the Coles family. Let's do that now, shall we?!
My parents and sister came to visit for the holiday. We were also blessed to have the Griffith family over for the all-important Thanksgiving meal, as Stacia was and is way too preggo to be travelling! We had a good spread and spent Thanksgiving day cozied up at home, watching the parade, football and whatever else happened to be on. I had a bit of a cold the whole time my family was here, so I admit I was kind of a pill, but hopefully, Oliver was cute enough to entice them to come back again to visit. The takeaway from the weekend was Nana teaching Oliver to say "silly burger". He now says it all the time, and it's pretty darn cute.

Other big news lately:  Oliver moved up to Preschool! He is now in the "Pre-1" room. He has been longing to go to Pre-1 ever since his friends left him in the Toddler Room all alone back in August was it? He got to visit every day for about a week and a half, and I thought that this past Monday, the 3rd, would be a breeze as his first full day since he was so excited at finally moving up. Naive Mommy moment! Tears! Lots of tears as I said goodbye to him in his new room. I was so sad, but then Charlie's mom let me know that when she dropped off Charlie about 10 minutes after Oliver, he was all smiles and hugs. Whew!
 I knew we might have a period of adjustment (such as coming home on Monday with SIX bags of dirty/wet underpants) but I did not factor tears into the equation! Fingers crossed he gets into the swing of things before Christmas Break comes and he's gone for a week and forgets everything that has to do with any sort of routine!

What else? Oh! we have an Elf! His name is Noah (my son may be a wee bit obsessed with the Clothier family, but hey, aren't we all?! :)) and Oliver does NOT like it when Noah the Elf moves around. He wants him to stay at eye level on the table at all times, where O can keep an eye on him. Oliver is very excited about all things Christmas, including Santa Clause. We will see if that translates into a successful lap-sit here in a week or so. :)
Below are some random pics of the last few weeks. As always, thanks for reading!

Yep, that's how we roll (in Daddy's car).
