Merry Christmas

Here's a picture of Roman and his cute cousins. Aren't those the cutest little Christmas outfits? This picture doesn't actually do them justice. I should have made them stand so you could get a better look. Well, we had a somewhat Merry Christmas at the Jenks residence. This was the first time I didn't spend Christmas with my family, so I was a little sad but at the same time happy that we didn't have to make the long, treterous 12 hour drive to Powell. So, on Christmas Eve we had a fun party with Jason's extended family. Toward the end Jason started saying he didn't feel so well. I just figured he had eaten too much and didn't think much of it. Well, that night he hardly slept and on Christmas day the poor guy had a full blown case of the stomach flu. I felt so bad for him. We've been married 4 years and I had never seen him this sick. And it had to happen on Christmas day!? He was a good sport, but I could just tell he wasn't himself. Anyway, we invited Jason's parents and his brother Chad to come over and eat breakfast and open presents.



Roman was spoiled by both grandparents and got lots of fun toys. Everyone was busy assembling them.


Roman still didn't quite grasp the whole Christmas thing. I think he enjoyed the unwrapping more than the toys themselves. Once they were assembled though, he liked playing with them. So, Christmas ended up being a pretty good day despite the illness. We went to my in-laws and had a delicious dinner. Roman was fine all day, but later that night he got sick too. And a few days after that, I got it. It really was the Christmas gift that just kept on giving! We're glad that we're all better now.

It just seems like it's not really Christmas without someone (or everyone in your case) getting sick... we even got to take a trip to the ER! I guess the good part is that you probably didn't gain any weight over the Holidays!:)

Being sick is the pits! It is nice not to travel far, but it also stinks not being with your own family. Glad to hear it was fun, for the most part.

oh yah, I met a cute girl today from Cody, or Powell. Her name is Coree (can't remember her last name) but she has blod hair and is super cute. She and her husband just moved into our ward. She said she totally knows you and thinks you even dated her husband in high school. Can't remember his name either. Anyway- small world!

Being sick is no fun, especially on such a fun holiday like christmas, although hopefully now that you all have had it you are in the clear for the rest of the winter!
