Here is this years version of the Olson Family Holiday letter...Margo was in charge of sending them out so if you have not received one yet it is her fault. However, here is an online version without the photos (cause they are on the computer at home...)
Official Olson Family Presidential Cabinet
Secretary of Defense: Alexander Olson. A fifth-grader, AJ, is skilled at ambushing his father with rolled-up socks, Pirates of The Caribbean online, baseball, basketball, Guitar Hero, piano, and stealthy odors (which comes naturally for 10 year-old boys).
Secretary of the Interior and Wildlife: Kelsey Olson. After graduating from Heritage High School she spent time at BYU for the summer before heading to Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo to earn a degree in “How-to-save-every-animal-in-the-world-and-move-them-into-her-Dad’s-garage”. Kelsey has taken up surfing, wears a hair-net to work, and tans for college credit.
Secretary of Health and Human Services: Derek Olson. A recently returned missionary from the Amazon jungle and rain forests of Peru, Derek is now actively providing human(e) and compassionate service to every female he comes in contact with at BYU Idaho. Dman is working on a computer science degree mingled with business and is studying to get into the exciting and excellently-timed world of real estate.
Secretary of Energy: Britton, Renee and their new addition, William (born August 21st) are at Stanford working on their PhD. thanks to a Department of Energy fellowship. The Olson’s are flying model planes, blogging, and adding poopy diapers to the earth’s landfill in record amounts. Fortunately, to offset their carbon footprint, they are also growing their own vegetables and working on cold fusion so I can run my electric razor for free.
Attorney General: The Scarborough family of Erin, Phil, Olivia and Samuel now reside in Washington, DC where Phil works for Covington & Burling. After scaring the bejeebers out of our neighbors, the FBI gave Phil his security clearance to visit his pro-bono “clients” in Guantanamo Bay. Erin loves DC and is now the official host of anyone who wants to visit our nation’s capital. Olivia is in pre-school, Sam is into everything, and Charlie the poodle is in deep doo!
President, Secretary of State, Secretary of Education: Margo Olson. Margo still juggles all her jobs (Principal, Wife, Mom, Homemaker, etc.) like a circus clown on steroids. She thrives on chaos and is at her best when over a dozen people are living under her roof for the holidays. Cooking for the masses and making lists of chores, tasks, and things to do are her specialty.
Dog Catcher: Jeff Olson. This is an appropriate job for the guy who has been chasing his tail (which has gotten even larger) for the last couple of years in real estate. Coaching and playing baseball, renewing an interest in tennis, and professional couch potato are sufficient diversions between studying naval lint and universal existentialism.
Our cabinet wishes your cabinet a joyous, healthy and bail-out free Christmas and New Year!
The Olson Administration
