An Olson Christmas

-Trev & I, Joline (Raith, Zane & Kayla), Grandpa & Grandma, Tanya & Anthony (Imogen & Rowan).-

With 4 dogs, 5 kids, and 7 adults, an Olson Christmas is always an adventure. Mountains of presents piled around the tree. Mom's delicious baking quickly disappearing from the counter tops. Kids dancing in the kitchen, with dogs following their every move in hopes of licking chocolaty fingers. While the adult chat over the games and puzzles competing for space on tabletop.

Ohhh the girls' dresses are beautiful. Those are traditional Scandinavian dresses--I used to have one too, though no where near as lovely as your nieces' are!

They are beautiful dresses. Trev's Mom picked them up for Tanya and Joline (when they were young) while she was back visiting family in Norway.

Fatherhood.... I don't know about that... Neices and nephews are enough for now. And yes, the girls do have stunning eyes.
