Halloween Days

Happy Halloween! Today was a fun day filled with candy, candy and lots more candy! Currently we are enjoying Josh on his sugar high! We let him come home and eat tons of his candy. You can see above how he layed down on the ground to study his candy, deciding which would be the right selection for his next munching pleasure (you can also see in one of the pictures the amount of candy he took at each house!) We went over to grandmas Louise's for some trick or treating in Provo, then finished the night in Springville where Josh was scared to death by someone's house with a smoke machine and a decapitated monster. He put his hands over his eyes and tried to run away! Joshy loved being a cowboy riding his horse named Bullseye. Anyway I wanted to get these pics out fast for grandparents and family. Hope you all had a great day!

Pumpkin Days

Wow, I know another post...I'm really cookin! So here is our little rendezvous to the pumpkin patch. My new calling in our ward is midweek activities leader and this was my first activity to plan. I had never been to a pumpkin patch before and it was really fun. Josh was looking for horses everywhere, of course, and also insisting that the squashes we saw were giant bananas for the horses to eat. Sure Joshy, whatever you say! Then we headed back to the church and painted the pumpkins. As you can imagine when I asked Josh what he was painting on his he said, "horsies and maybe a little baby zebra". Do I have a crazy child....yes! But I love it that way!

So I'm back!! Sorry it's been so long but we are having computer difficulties. It is still doing weird things which is why I couldn't write captions under the pictures. I have a feeling there is an easy way to fix the problem, but Chad and I are a little technologically challenged!
So let me tell you what these pictures are of! They start most recent back to Labor Day weekend.
The first are of FHE tonight when we carved a pumpkin. Chad and JOsh are making scary faces like the pumpkin.
Then the Children's museum in SLC where the famous life flight picture was taken. NO there was no family emergency, they had a life sized helicopter the kids can play in.
Next Josh and Chad with their fly swatters. There were a few weeks when it seemed that we had a zillion flies in our house and Josh loved trying to kill them! They are making tough faces.
Then on to the UCLA Utah game, actually a pretty rotten experience but we got some cute pictures before the game! I'm with Chad's mom Annie and sister Holly in our #7 jersys.
Then Josh's latest obsession (along with horses) putting any sort of material on his head and pretending it's hair. Sometimes he brushes it, the other day he asked my to blow dry it.
Next Chad and Joshy playing football on a picnic we had one night.
Lastly comes labor day weekend. We went to the zoo- heaven for Josh and Chad actually! He is holding his lion he named Alex from the giftshop. Then we went to the first BYU game with Grandpa Cole. Josh was yelling "Go bruins!" the whole time- he thinks every football game is UCLA and uncle Ben.

So that is a little whirlwind tour of what we have been up to the past few months. We also had some family pictures taken. Go to, click on clients then type in Olson and you can see them. If you do, give me some imput on which you like. My wonderful cousin Hether took them for us and I think we got some keepers!
