Kade's first Christmas. He really didn't get the idea of opening the gifts but he sure liked to play with them! Collin had the best time opening them all!

Our tree Christmas Eve and the boys on Christmas morning. Collin woke up at 4:30 because he was so excited to see what Santa left him. Yes, the boys have matching pajamas and I think it is cute!

Merry Christmas from The Olsons!

Collin was a little angel for the Christmas pageant at church. This was the only good shot I got of him because I was involved with the program. James took some video so we can share when we see you.

While we were at the zoo Collin and Mom had the chance to hand feed the giraffes.

In December the Zoo turns into a Christmas wonderland. Since the temperature has been so mild we took the boys to see all the lights and took a horse drawn carriage ride through the woods.

I've decided to make a new punk rock band. Collin singing lead, Alex on guitar, and Kade on drums!! Rock on!(as Collin would say)

Pictures with Santa. Both boys did great with taking a picture with Santa this year. Collin went right up and asked for his gift. Kade tried to pull his beard but we got him to turn his attention to the camera.

Collin started out all nice and neat and by the end of the decorating he had every possible sprinkle type in a pile in front of him. He also took a bite into six different cookies along the way.

Collin making Christmas cookies.

It has become tradition that we all make Christmas cookies each year. It is a ton of fun and a big mess but we wouldn't have it any other way. Next year Kade should be able to join the mess (I mean fun!).

Kade's first Christmas!! Here are some of Kade's first pictures around the Christmas tree.

Kade is a little ladies man already! look at how happy he is with a double kiss from Mom and Aunt April.

Collin has a great imagination. Here he is having a Blanket Party. He found every blanket in the house and threw them in the pack and play.

Collin and Aunt April had a blast playing with play dough. Play Play dough with me Aunt Aprillll!!!!

Uh-Oh Kade has figured out how to climb the stairs. He can get up the first couple. He is easily distracted though when he sees mom with the camera and thinks it is a fun new toy.

Well we knew it would happen after Kade started crawling but didn't think it would be this soon. Kade has started pulling himself up! He loves to try and get the buttons on the TV and when James went to get him up this morning he was standing in the crib. We are making predictions that he may be walking by Christmas!
Brotherly love!!!!

Kade's new favorite game is to crawl over and attack his big brother. They both love the new independence Kade has found from crawling!

Happy Halloween from Collin the construction boss and Kade the duck. Collin and Mom went trick-or-treating while Kade and Dad stayed home to hand out candy.

Sunday night we went on a small spooky trick-or-treat hike.

Eating makes me sleepy!!!
