Toy Time!

Christmas presents have rendered the children mostly homebound but thoroughly entertained. 


Like the Playmobil dragon castle and doll house above, or Frannie whispering to her babies in their new double stroller below.

Merry Christmas Eve and Christmas!

We spent Christmas Eve checking out the ice rink at Ridgeland Common and getting the kids on skates for the first time. This beats Daddy's first time on skates by more than 10 years as he didn't lace 'em up for the first time until he was in college for a couple years. The kids showed a lot of promise in spite of the many unique and entertaining ways they fell down.









And then we spent most of Christmas Day inside, in our pjs, playing with our new toys. But we did venture out to hand-deliver a couple holiday cards to neighbors and to get Frannie a chance to test out her new set of wheels.

Green Saturday

Forget Black Friday (we stayed home and hosted a brunch), we're all about Green Saturday - the Saturday after Thanksgiving where you head in to the city and see The Grinch Musical at the Chicago Theater.

We started the day outside and at the park enjoying some relatively warm weather for a change.



But after our peanut butter and cowboy sandwiches for lunch...


It was time to head into the big city for the show.

So Many Thanks

We have so much for which to be thankful. Sure there have been some grumblings about us spending the Thanksgiving holiday here by ourselves and not traveling to see extended family, but we're gearing up for a wonderful holiday together and we're lucky for that.

We're also thankful for those last few days of fall:






And our visit from the T's during Halloween:






And all the fun we had dancing at Libby and Tim's wonderful wedding:














We're a lucky bunch.

Where's The Posts?

Sorry it's been so long since our last post. We've been pretty busy swinging on swings, dancing in public, playing a lot of soccer, celebrating some birthdays, and in Henry's case, losing many teeth.
