Every year, we talk about doing Christmas cards or letters. In 2010 we did a video, and now we have another video for 2012. Here is the Olson Family 2012 Year in Review & Christmas Video. Merry Christmas!!
A follow-up to my video on my Android App. Jude and I beam out to get a breakfast snack.
The lighting is atrocious, I know, but we still had fun with it.
Video Andy | 07 Sep 2012
Here’s a demo I did of the new Smartphone app I wrote for Android, called “Beam Me Up.”
We spent the weekend in Columbus, Ohio. Saturday was the Ohio state fair. I’m not a huge fan of going to state fairs, well, with Andy that is. His favorite activities are eating greasy, overpriced foods and finding somewhere to sit. Those would easily be my two least favorite activities. I packed a lunch since I can’t bear the thought of forking over big bucks on a hamburger with 2 Krispy Kreme donuts as the bun or deep fried Kool-Aid (yes, these items were for sale at the Ohio state fair). Jude and Levi enjoyed milking a cow for the first time, petting a baby kangaroo and a lizard, racing down the giant slide, watching the electric trains zoom around their exhibits and painting a mural (although really painted themselves as much as the mural). On Saturday night, Jude and I went swimming in the hotel’s pool. He’s still really timid in the water. He loves jumping in, but doesn’t swim independently. It was nice to have no port access so that he could get wet.
Today we spent the day at the Columbus Zoo. Jack Hannah is associated with that zoo so we were expecting some great things. It was a perfectly fine zoo. My favorite thing was seeing my first manatee ever. My 2nd favorite thing was seeing my second manatee ever. I also loved watching Jude and Levi in the big playland. I told Jude to watch over Levi really carefully and to treat Levi like his shadow. Jude was helping drag Levi up the platform steps of the playland, even when they went up to Levi’s armpits. It was pretty cute watching them play together so nicely.
The 3rd week of treatment starts tomorrow. Jude’s treatment time is moving up. His latest scheduled time this week is 10:15 and the earliest is 9:15. It will be great to get treatment out of the way sooner in day
The following is a faux movie trailer I put together from our day at the Indianapolis Zoo today. Overall, my idea to head up there for the afternoon was a hit!
This year, rather than the usual letter and/or Christmas card, we decided to put together a video. This is our 2010 Year-in-Review and Christmas “Letter”
A few weeks ago, a former co-worker joined us on a trip to the orchard. He is starting a new photography business, and asked if I would take my family someplace fun and let him tag along so that he could put together an album to go into his portfolio. He did an amazing job. The album is available here, and he also put together a video with some of the photos. You’ll want to check out both, as there are great photos that were added to each, but not the other.
A few weeks ago, Jessica took Jude out to her parents’ for the afternoon. While out there, John gave his grandson his first tour of the factory. I think he is eager to get Jude trained on the welder!
