Man Oliver is getting so good at drawing. Drawing objects is usually between 3-5 years and often later than three. He even drew in the christmas balls.

Oliver just got a candy cane from the tree. Of course he wanted to sit where we found him one christmas morning.. in front of the tree.

I think he might come to love christmas as much as his old man.…
