I had a great time at Christmas. I got a Megaship space shuttle from my Grandma and Grandpa Tarbox. I love going to Grandma’s house. I got to play outside in the snow. I wish there was snow at my house. I got an mp3 player from Mommy and Daddy. I love to listen to the Witch Doctor song on it. I also had fun racing my motorcycle toys with Daddy. By Jordan

Christmas wasn’t so fun for me. I woke up on Tuesday morning with a horrible earache. Thankfully the doctor was able to fit me in Tuesday morning. Turns out that I had swimmer’s ear. The odd thing is that I haven’t been swimming since September. The doctor gave me drops to heal my ear, but nothing for the pain. I was taking Tylenol and Aleve and neither was helping with the pain. I didn’t start to feel better until Friday morning. On Friday morning I woke up with intestinal issues and vomiting. I ended up sleeping most of the day. So as you can tell-my Christmas was not very fun.
Here is what our Christmas week was like:
Saturday: exchanged gifts with the Painters, went to Stefan’s aunt’s house for a family dinner, went to Journey to Jesus (met up with the Robinsons and Gibbs), went to Christmas Tree Shops-excellent store
Sunday: Church was canceled for a dusting of snow—what’s up with that?
Monday: Made Chocolate Chex Mix, white chocolate trees in a mold, finished wrapping presents
Tuesday: excruciating pain in my ear, doctor’s visit, pictures with Santa at the mall, pictures at Picture People (nothing like procrastinating)-rescheduled from the morning when I had my appointment, made green Jello jigglers in tree molds
Wednesday: opened our presents, packed up, traveled to my parent’s house (almost 3 hours away), family get-together with my dad’s side of the family

Thursday: opened Christmas presents with my parents and my brother, his girlfriend, and their baby, Aidan, went over to my grandma’s house (mom’s mom)—we already did Christmas with my mom’s side of the family at the beginning of December-- went to my aunt Bonnie’s house (dad’s sister)

Friday: woke up with my ear feeling slightly better-but feeling very, very, sick, Jordan, Stefan, my mom, my dad, and my uncle Terry went sledding riding
Saturday: traveled back to Elizabethtown, unloaded car, went to New Holland for gift exchange with Stefan’s family
