Sledding the day after Christmas. Collin, Kade, Mom, Dad, Aunt Laura and Michelle all went sledding the day after Christmas.

Merry Christmas from The Olson Family. These are random shots of the boys opening gifts on Christmas Eve and Christmas day from Grandma and Grandpa Olson and Nana and Papa. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and will have a happy New Year!

A visit with Santa. Collin and Kade went to see Santa this weekend. The original plan was to go to the zoo. The decorate the zoo, the kids can eat dinner with Santa, and then a horse drawn sled ride through the woods. The weather did not cooperate though and it was too snowy to make the trip. We decided to head to the mall instead (not as fun). Collin was very concerned about how Santa could be at the mall and the zoo. We told him he was finishing up at the mall and was heading to the zoo after. He then said well if Santa can make it to the zoo why can't we? We responded well Santa has his sled and reindeer. Collin then said he wished he was Santa! Too cute!
Kade was just happy and kept pointing and saying Santa. He is really into Christmas this year! Every time we said we were going to see Santa he would ask..and reindeer too?

Making Christmas cookies!

Snow Day Fun!

What do you do when you come in from the snow..drink hot chocolate! It was a fun morning. Dad had to finish the shoveling though :-)

What to do on a snow in the snow! We had about 8 inches and Dad worked from home today. Collin, Kade and Mom went out to start the shoveling and have some fun in all the snow!

After the decorating was done Collin wanted to have some fun with our camera. These are all the shots he took (I think he did a pretty good job!). As we watched him run around the house snapping shots it made us happy for one present Santa will bringing this year for Collin :-)

Decorating the Christmas Tree. All of our decorations are up (except for the outside which we decided to skip this year). The boys always have so much fun putting the tree up. The asked all week and we finally did it Friday night.

Happy Birthday to Dad! Collin helped make the cake and the kids drew him wonderful pictures. They had fun picking out balloons and decorating the house so Dad would be surprised after work. No laughing at mom's singing I was just getting over a cold HAHA!

Family Fun Night at Collin's school. This fall the family fun night theme was football. They had obstacle courses set up for the kids, inflatables in the gym, door prizes, popcorn and Gatorade, and the kids had a chance to put on some football gear. Collin put on the black eye makeup and tried on the gear. These pictures are of Kade wearing a helmet and Collin with his friend Joe. Could they be future football players?

Happy Halloween. The first picture is Collin and his friend Joe at Boo Bash. The Olson gang trick or treating:Kade the pirate, Anthony the pumpkin, Nicholas the soldier, and Collin the ninja. Jessica the cat with Homer. I went as an angel watching over her want to be thug.(Collin picked our costumes :-). We had a neighborhood party so Kade took a picture with Jane the Dracula. I thought Kade would be more scared of things but he would just laugh.
