Thanksgiving…

was wonderful, as usual.  I love to see my family at my Aunt Dixie Lee’s house.  We forgot our camera… of course.

Here are some cute cousin photos from Nana and Augie’s house last weekend.

This one was meant for the Kimmel Christmas card… but didn’t make the cut.  I LOVE IT!

Mom and I braved the crowds on Friday to get some Christmas shopping done… when I got home… I saw this:

Lily Sings "Our Song" from Jeff Olson on Vimeo.

 

This is her favorite song right now.  Keep in mind this is the same kid who knew all the words to “Love Story” at 18 months.  She chose this one all on her own one day on my ipod in the car.  She calls in ‘Another Gracie Bug Song’.  Jeff downloaded a video of Taylor Swift singing it with just a guitar and a microphone… so Jeff taped Lily’s microphone to his guitar stand in his office.  She’s wearing cowboy boots like her, too.  I think a pink guitar is going to be a last minute addition to the Christmas shopping list…. so the poor kid doesn’t keep having to play the air armpit guitar in her performances.

She’s lucky to have such a fun dad

… even if he didn’t put a bow in her hair before starting the video camera.

Oh. My. Goodness. That video is the cutest thing I've ever seen!!! I love it!!! And she actually looks like you in it. Maybe when she performs it brings out the "Shauna" in her??? I love that photo of Luke and Lily. Can't believe mom and dad are going with something else. Maybe you can put both on the card?

OH MY GOSH!!! First of all- she is getting so big. I can't believe her hair in that first picture! The video is the cutest thing ever! I was definitely cracking up. Love when she pulled dog in for a duet.

I love the photo of Luke and Lily too. I am now questioning our choice for the cards. I absolutely love the video of Lily singing. She is amazing and Jeff is too for setting her up a mike. I can't wait for her to see your performances on tape. Love, Nana

Lily is just the cutest, most talented, and smartest little two year old girl ever!!!! Papa and I love to see her perform and can't wait to actually see her in person in 24 days. YEAH!!!!! Looks like so much fun roasting marshmellows outside in warm Texas in Nov.
Love You Forever, Maow

The photo of Lukie B. and B-Bug Olson is one of my all-time favorites. It captures both of their personalities so well. Had a blast spending time with you all on Thanksgiving.

THE CUTEST VIDEO EVER!!!! Send it to Taylor....or at least Ellen! :) Riley watched it THREE times and then we had to go through the whole Olson video library and watch them all! After the last one she exclaims, "I have panties like Lily!" All that talent from Lily, and Riley noticed her Elmo panties~sigh!
