Monday, December 24, 2007 - Merry Christmas Update

La-Z-Boy? More like La-Z-Girls!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! As you can tell from the picture. . .I didn’t do too much today. Olivia has decided that she no longer needs the extra oxygen and when she saturates better without her prongs in, who are we to question her? She knew when she was ready to come off the ventilator and never looked back. Some days it seems that she has it all figured out. I know that I will want the oxygen tank right beside her for some time. She may still need it when she’s in her car seat. Before I forget. . . last time I spoke with Holli, she had not found a home for Harley yet. It’s probably too late to put him in a red bow for Christmas morning, but it’s not too late to ring in the New Year with him. If you are interested, you can call Holli at 316-323-2765.

This was the first year of my entire life that I didn’t spend the evening on Christmas Eve at my grandparents’ house. I really missed it, although having Olivia home is the best Christmas present I could have hoped for. I missed spending the afternoon at Ryan’s parents’ house. Watching my nieces and nephews open their Christmas presents has become quite the highlight for me in years past. I miss you guys and hope you get everything you wanted. Ryan, Olivia and I are getting ready to pile into the bedroom, watch Ratatouille and wait for Santa Claus to come!

Boy, you have to get up early to beat Aunt Kim! I thought I would be the first to wish you an official Christmas Day Merry Christmas. As Kim said, we missed you yesterday. Looking forward to Christmas future when we can all be together on Christmas Eve again. Lots of love. Don't forget to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.

Ryan, Jodi, and Olivia,
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. Santa sure found Savannah, so I know he found Olivia. Enjoy the day snuggling together as a family.

Well, everyone, you're reading my Christmas Gift! I got the internet!!! So now I can check whenever! I'm so excited! This was the first thing I did was to make sure that the blog site worked. And when it finally loaded, my dad had blocked it on his parental controls. So I had that changed. And now it works. Some of the pictures don't come up because in some pictures Livi isn't sporting her new outfits, and so...UGH!! It's frusterating to not get to see her! But this is probably my favorite gift, knowing that I can check in on her at any time.
I'm so glad that she has taken some HUGE steps and has decided to do away with her oxygen, not entirely but it's good to know that she is breathing better.
I hope all blog readers have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!
Love you all.
Stay Strong,

p.s. You'll be hearing from me alot more often now, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

Merry Christmas! We are so glad you are getting to have some "normal" things in your life. Isn't it nice to be home and just do a simple thing like watch a movie with your baby and your husband?! Congrats on the oxygen too. We'll pray she continues to do well!
