Happy Birthday Marli

We celebrated Marli's birthday by having dinner at my parents' house with Kristi and the kids. Marli decided we should have pizza from Beggar's for dinner so that everyone would enjoy it and get what they wanted. The ice cream cake from Schwann's was so good and rich! Vanilla and chocolate ice cream between layers of chocolate cake with fudge icing and mini-chocolate chips... soooo yummy! Of course Dad couldn't wait for candles and singing before he got his piece. That's why there is a piece already out of the cake in the pictures.


A Day with Gavin

I was lucky enough to be available to babysit my cousin's adorable little man, Gavin. He is just happy all the time. Now that he's on the move, it definitely took a lot more work than watching him when he was a little baby. We got a kick out of him. It's nice to get that baby fix once in a while since my baby just turned 14!!

Another day of Chicago Winter fun!

It's a Winter Wonderland outside my window today.

I had to take some pictures from my porch because I was definitely not going out in that mess until I absolutely had to.

At 8:30 this morning there were 5 inches of snow on my grill. Now at 11:00, I can't see the end of my porch. It blends right in with the rest of the snow, so I'd guess we have at least another inch or two. And it's still snowing!

Isn't winter fun in Chicago?
