Merry Christmas to our Blog friends and family! The week before Christmas Matt's mom came out for 9 days to help us out with our crazy work schedules. Then on Monday Matt's mom left and my sister Brittaney came for a week. It was great to have their help since Matt and I both worked a few long days, and with trying to get settled into our new place.
On Christmas day Jack went running out to see all of his toys from Santa and was greeted with a new tent, a laptop, a remote control jeep, a "Little People" garage, and more. The laptop is by far his favorite gift, and he can rarely be seen without it. As you can see our attempt at a Christmas Day Family Picture was unsuccessful.
Today is Matt's 26th birthday. It was a low key day and Matt joked that his best birthday presents were having Britt leave, and hopefully the Bears will beat the Vikings (the current score is MN 6, CHI 16). Tomorrow (1 day late) I am going to make the "Olson Family Chocolate Birthday Cake" and on Friday we are going to go out for dinner at "Texas de Brazil" to celebrate.
