We had a great time on our annual Christmas trip to Chi-town. The windows were a little weird this year. But, we got to see other great things. It was sooooooooo cold. Even the birds tried to get warm. I love walking around when its snowing which it was doing plenty of. The view of Michigan Ave. from our Hotel was nice.

Isn't Eight Great?!?!?!

Daniel is 8 today!!!! Wow where did that time go? I can remember like it was yesterday. We spent Christmas in the Hospital. He was an awesome awesome Christmas gift. Many more happy ones to you, Daniel.


Ice Skating Anyone?????

Here is our first ice storm of the season. Woo Hoo! EXCEPT, we were the only school still in session. That's ok...we have two weeks break for Christmas. YES YES YES!!!

Feeing the Reindeer

Sam thought it was of dire importance to feed the reindeer immediately when he came home from school yesterday. His teacher gave each class member a bag of "Reindeer Food" that consisted of oatmeal and glitter. The glitter is so they can see the food from the sky. So sweet. That's my sweet Sam! Love it. More memories.


Making Christmas Memories

This is what I just Love so much about Christmas... Making memories and starting traditions. Last year I can home from a shopping trip to see three beautiful Gingerbread houses. This year the kids could not wait to repeat the memory. Good job boys. It is so neat to see how each one intently works on their masterpiece. LOVE IT!


J & K....Really, Just Beautiful

Thanks so much for asking me to take your pictures. I am so excited for you two. This is beautiful. Hey "little brother", can't wait 'til Feb. 14th.


New Look

So kind of the big thing going on in our house (besides the bathroom...lol) is that Danny had to get glasses. He looks so grown up. He has to wear them all the time. When he found out he had to get them, he couldn't wait. Now, he can't wait to take them off. He is getting used to them now though.
