I have posted this picture before, but it is one of my favorites. Gizmo brings such much joy into our lives ... he's definitely a lot of work at times, but he's a great snuggler.
Gizmo decided last week that we hadn't spent enough money on Christmas, so he thought a $400 bill at the vets office would help us out. Our poor little guy started coughing on Tuesday, and by Wednesday it was HORRIBLE! Justin took him to the vet - and after a lot of tests and $400, we found out Gizmo has pneumonia! (Merry Christmas!) He is finally starting to snap out of it, and his coughing is pretty much gone. Sometimes Gizmo is more work than Jordyn. (but it's worth it!)

Tuesday: Christmas with the 3 of us (see previous post)
Wednesday: Dinner with Justin's family, Christmas Eve church with my family, and Christmas with my Grandpa and Grandma Kannegieter
Thursday: Christmas morning with my family, Christmas lunch with my dad's sister and family, Christmas afternoon/evening with Justin's family
Friday: Christmas with Justin's Grandpa and Grandma Van Ginkel
Saturday: Christmas with Justin's Grandpa and Grandma Overman
Jordyn did great throughout our busy schedule. She actually slept through all 7 gift openings! I made a slide show with some of our pictures. I didn't post all of them ... I didn't want to bore you too much. :)
On a side note - Jordyn is so close to sleeping through the night! Yeah! On Thursday night she slept from 11:00-4:45, and last night she slept from 10:30-5:30! I couldn't believe it! 10:30-5:30 would be a perfect schedule for me when I am back at work again! Last night was the first night I have slept for 6-7 hours since I was about 4 or 5 months pregnant! It sure felt good!
Now it's time to relax. Our gifts are put away, the house is mostly cleaned up. Our evening will consist of watching football, playing Price is Right on the Wii or the Wii Fit ... and of course snuggling with Jordyn!

Ever since Justin and I have dated/been married, we have always celebrated Christmas with the 2 of us (and now the 3 of us) on December 23rd. Justin can't wait any longer to open presents, so he wasn't about to let our 10th Christmas together be any different! (Can you believe it's been 10 Christmases ... and we've only been married for almost 3 years?!) Anyway, I dressed Jordyn up in a little Christmas shirt ... she was wide awake, until it was time to open presents. She fell asleep fast and was sleeping the whole time we opened gifts. I finally took her jeans off of her and she woke up. Some of my favorite pictures of Jordyn are her holding her new doll. I know she's too young to play with a doll, but every little girl needs a doll. :) I wanted to put all of the pictures in order, but I am having a horrible time uploading pictures tonight, so they are in a very random order tonight. :) Anyway, check out Jordyn's shirt ... "All Mommy wants for Christmas is a Silent Night."
Again, sorry for the randomness with the pictures. I finally just gave up and decided to leave them in their weird placements. :)
