'Tis the Season

Merry Christmas to everyone!! We hope your Christmas was as happy as ours. I'm happy to report that according to Joe we got all the "shiz" we wanted for Christmas. In addition to the "shiz" we had several exciting Christmas parties. We always enjoy our Spilker Family Christmas Eve party. This year Katie, Callie & I dressed up as punk rock queens and danced to a punk version of "O Come All Ye Faithful". We were a hit!

Just last week Joe and I went snowboarding with my brother, his girlfriend Jessica and my sisters. It was a really fun day. The snow was good, the back pain was increadible. So, I thought I was a pro-snowboarder for 30 seconds and have been paying for it ever since. It's been a good excuse to get lots of massages out of Joe!

Joe is finally done with school. He's spent a lot of time helping my dad put pergo in the apartment downstairs and paint. They're almost done now and the apartment looks fabulous!

It's been almost a month now since Joe has heard anything from any medical schools. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the anticipation is a killer. He did, however, have a fabulous interview at UCLA. The doctor who interviewed him said that he would put him in the "highly recruitable" category which means that he still has a chance. For a California resident that means your for sure going to get it, but for an out of state resident it's still up in the air. The earliest we expect to hear anything from UCLA is mid-February.

A very merry Christmas to you all! Thanks for your love and support.
