The Season to be Jolly...

...has come and gone. What happened to this year? It's flown by so fast!

We had a wonderful time with Russ' family for Christmas. Chloe Jo did great on our trip, though it was much shorter this time. It took us 4 hours to get there, but only 3 1/2 coming back due to the weather being better and Chloe Jo slept the whole time.
This is the outfit Russell gave Chloe Jo for Christmas.
It's perfect and so true!
This is Russ' parents tree with all the presents under it. OH MY! We stayed with his brother and his family and we even opened our presents to each other there. I really couldn't believe how many presents there were!
This is Chloe Jo opening a present from Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Bailey. It was a LeapFrog alphabet toy. Does anyone else love LeapFrog as much as I do?
We hadn't seen Russ' parents since Chloe Jo was born so it was nice to get together with them. His dad is a goober!
This is Alli Brooke. She is Josh (Russ' other brother) and Liz's (Josh's wife) little girl. I think Chloe Jo has a strong resemblence to her (and Russ' side in general) and she will probably continue to look like her as she grows.
This is David Wayne (or D.W.). He is the newest member of the family and is Jeremy and Bailey's. He looks just like his Dad and also got that family gene.
This is Josh and Liz's son, Marcus. He is obsessed with Thomas the Train.
We had Christmas with my parents on Sunday. We didn't get to get together with my sister or brother this year since we did that at Thanksgiving so it was just my parents, my nephew (who is staying with my parents for a week) and us.
As if all the toys and clothes she had already opened from us and from Russ' family weren't enough...

She got two big toys from Grampy and G-Jo. Russ and I are really needing that third room now!
I love this picture! Her belly poking through the handles on her toy is so cute!
To top off the holiday we came home and this afternoon Chloe Jo spiked a fever. I thought she was just teething this morning because she had a bad night and woke up cranky and has slept most of the day, but she started feeling warm around lunch time. I called her doctor's office and they gave me some advice so I am trying to get her fever to come down. It's a lowgrade so it's not too concerning at this point. Hopefully she will be feeling better in the morning.

This is such a sad face. There wasn't anything I could do at that point to comfort her so I took a picture instead. She has just been so pitiful today!
