So we have now started our Christmas celebrations! We start with Olson Christmas....four of the eight cousins won't be around for Christmas so we wanted to celebrate Christmas with everyone so we decided to do Christmas today. It was tons of fun watching all the cousins play together. It will be fun to watch and see how they all will interact as they get older. Little N likes to play with the older kids and is particular smittened with his oldest boy cousin Kale. My favorite part of Christmas is getting together with everyone and the reading of the Christmas story. Even if you hear it EVERY single day in December there is always something special about the story of Jesus' birth. Can you even imagine traveling on foot when you are 9 months pregnant and then giving birth in a stable? Nope....neither can I but Mary did it!
