Olivia's 1st Christmas

Christmas was a blast and to see it through a little girls eyes is even more amazing. Hope all of you enjoy the pictures.

Charity Bench Press Competition

The famous "cheeker" smile

Olivia went to one of Dad's powerlifting competition a week ago. It was a charity bench press meet where the money made went for toys. As expected she showed very little interest but came anyway for support. Hope all of you enjoy some of the pictures.

MWH Christmas Party

My company had a Christmas party over the weekend where we brought Olivia with us so that everyone could meet her. All three of us had a blast and Olivia definitely loved the attention. She got to tear up the rug with Anna on the dance floor and eat plenty of good food.

The couple of marks you see on Olivia’s left cheek is laser treatment we had done to remove the birth mark.

Here are a couple of pictures from the party.

Preparing for Christmas Day

Our little "Jedi" Princess.

It was a busy weekend with Olivia and Mom decorating the Christmas tree and preparing for the arrival of Santa. We did make time to see Santa who made a brief visit to Bass Pro Shop. We were around a bunch of people wearing camouflage - Laura loved it!!! Olivia was able to meet Santa for the first time and sit on his lap for some pictures.

Thanksgiving and Update

Some serious "bed head"!

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that all of Olivia’s blood-work and testing came back, she was diagnosed as being disease free and healthy as a horse. We were thinking if she was going to be diagnosed with anything it would have been a tape worm because the girl can eat…haha!

Thanksgiving was lots of fun and we all ate more than we should have. Olivia got to meet her godmother, LaJan, and the Bennett family (Mike, Debbie, and Sierra) who we have known and I have worked with for many years. Unfortunately, her godfather, Dwayne Kouf, had one of his sons diagnosed with the swine flu and we were not able to visit them. But we hope to introduce Olivia to her godfather soon.

Hope all of you enjoy the pictures.
