December 30, 2004 - Sick day at home...

The second to last day of the year finds the Olson family at home sick with colds.  We must have overdone it during our Christmas break in Ontario, though I don't see how that's possible since we spent the whole time lounging around the house eating great Portuguese food, drinking, sleeping and basically avoiding the cold weather outside as much as possible!

We left Calgary on Dec 17 in time for the surprise appearance at my uncle mike's place for their annual Christmas party in Welland, Ontario.  It was a great party, complete with gourmet food, cases of wine, keg of beer, oyster shucker, live rockabilly band, and AKAVIT!  Now what more could you possibly ask for?

The following week was spent with Ana's folks in Brantford.  They were delighted to have their little grandson with them, and we were delighted to take advantage of their babysitting services and go and see a couple movies.  As usual the time went by much too fast but we did enjoy ourselves, including Magnus who was smiles the whole time, even after he picked up his little cold.

Next stop is Saskatoon this weekend.  At the moment, we're not feeling too up for travel but we need to get Magnus over to see his grandma Olson, who hasn't seen him for two months!

Happy new year!  And for those of you who haven't seen our Christmas letter, click here.

Kris, Ana, Magnus
