Happy Holidays, 2009!

About time I made another post. Here are some pics from our trip to Chicago. I drove alone with kids, and Dave joined us Christmas helping to drive home after the New Year. I had a great alone time with the kids and made it in one piece. We had crazy weather: snowstorm (4 inches), below zero temperatures, ice storms, sleet, a thunderstorm, and even woke up one morning to flooding in my parents basement. My brother Gary joined us for a few days after Christmas. We had a cold trip downtown to the Field Museum and Millenium Park and went ice skating on New Years Eve. Here are a few pics from our trip.
