Great News!

Dad at Christmas 2008

We just found out today that my dad is officially in remission! He was dignosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma since 2003 and has had chemo three times since then. This last round of chemo had eight treatments and was different and stronger than the last two times. He lost his hair and a ton of weight, but not his good spirits! Congrats Dad! We love you!

Christmas morning...What a surprise!

Merry Christmas from our family! We had to play Patty Cake with Will while the self-timer was going off to ensure a smile! Ahhh...tricks of the trade!

My favorite gifts of all time! Jordan and Will REALLY out did themselves! Diamond earrings...

AND an hour message at a Day spa!!! I am spoiled!

Jordan and Will opening Jordan's present from me!

OOOO! A photo organizer! Could a guy get luckier?!?
I decided to get Jordan a Wii last minute and all stores were sold out! Instead of doing his hobby with him, now he can do mine with me! (watch the Christmas surprise video for Jordan's real present!)

Dark Knight from Will

A book from Daddy!

This was one of Will's gifts...his first year milestones in a snapfish album! He loves looking at himself!
Christmas morning was a lot of fun for our little family. We had so much fun opening presents and playing with all of our new stuff! Will did really awesome trying to help open presents and was a little trooper! All of our presents were surprises to each other this year, and it made opening them a little more fun than usual! I was extremely happy that we were able to spend Christmas 2008 in WI since we haven't sold our house yet.

Jordan's Chrismas Present surprise!

First Will opened all of his presents but two since he was getting squirmy. Then I opened mine, and then Jordan opened his. We then went back to Will's last two presents from Santa. This is Jordan and Will opening them! I had to be sneaky this year since Jordan would snoop for his presents!

Christmas Eve day

We spent Christmas Eve day with the Schaefer side of our family. We went to Jordan's parents' house for the celebration! We were there for the duration of Will's nap and he fell asleep on the way there. He missed dinner and the Christmas program, but woke up in time for Santa and presents! He was slightly weary of Santa at first, but then decided that he wasn't so scary and proceded to rip off his glasses, and almost his beard! Santa was a very good sport and commented on how much "Grandpa" loved the color red on all of the kids! You know, because Grandpas and Santa love red!
(Nice try, Dad! Thanks for dressing up)
Will loved his Elmo slippers, riding train, and other presents! He also got a tunnel/tent that he doesn't really like so much right now, but we are hoping he warms up to it soon!
We got to visit with Jordan's neighbors, the Steinhafels, and congrats to Nate and Emily on expecting your first child! :)

All of the kiddos: Will, Tea, Jake, Emma and Josh. This was my best picture. Pretty tense! Jamie, I would LOVE to see some of yours in a web album so I can snatch them!
