Today, August 22, 2012, would have been Oliver's fourth birthday. Even though we lost Ollie nearly two years ago to cancer, we think about him every day, and consider ourselves so lucky to have been blessed with the short time we got to know and love him.
We'd like to take a moment to remember our crew member with a few of our favorite photos, just as we did last year on his birthday.
Ollie getting in on the DIY action by stealing Alex's safety glasses.
Twins? The only photo of Alex with his short lived (and grown for Halloween) facial hair.
My boys, snoozin' on the couch.
Our one and only family picture with the four of us. Mel's lack of love for Ollie is apparent in this picture.
There are so many little things we miss about you, like how when you ran fast your ears would flip back (and get stuck that way), how you smelled like Fritos when you woke up in the morning, and the crazy "singing"/gremlin noise you would make when you were trying to get our attention.
Happy birthday, little snaggle toothed monster. We hope that on the other side of the rainbow bridge, you've been met with an endless supply of squirrels to chase and chicken treats to devour.
