Our trip...

I'm a little behind with our trip, Thanksgiving, and all sorts of other craziness going on. That's okay...we have really been enjoying ourselves, and it is always nice to have a little blogging break! 
Also, my computer is all sorts of jacked up, and we will be purchasing a new one on "Cyber Monday." Hopefully I will actually be able to download pictures on the computer again and not have to upload from my iPhone! When it's easy to upload pictures, I am much more likely to blog. :) 

So, here's a quick run-down of our trip. We went to Chicago for four nights, and it was fabulous! Micah had to work one day, and we had two dinner events while we were there. Other than that, we got to hang out, shop, sleep in, and eat good food! We LOVE Chicago, and always say that it is our favorite "big city!" It's easy to get around, tons of stuff to do and see, and just so much fun! 

A few of my favorite things we did while we were there...
-After dinner one night we went up to the Hancock Observatory Bar and hung out with friends. It was a super clear night, and you could see the whole stinkin' city! (96th floor!) 
-American Girl store...of course! I love American Girl and collected the dolls growing up. I planned to pass one of my dolls down to Landry this year for Christmas since we gave her my Bitty Baby last year, BUT I of course changed my mind once I got there. She can Collier are getting the Bitty Twins from my mom. They seriously look just like them, and Collier is always trying to play with Landry's babies. It will be sweet for them to each have their own little mini-me. :) 
-We went to Second City comedy Club...twice! The shows are absolutely hilarious, and I know we will see some of these people in movies before long. This is the club where Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Jim Belushi,  Chris Farley and several others started. It was so much fun! 
-We were also there the weekend that they lit the magnificent mile for Christmas. That was pretty cool! 

Really, we just had a great time. It was awesome to re-fuel, relax, and actually have complete conversations with Micah. We weren't running or as busy as we were while in Vegas, and that was nice. I am blessed with sweet grandparents and babysitters who love my kiddos enough to keep them while we are gone. We came back to reality, we are back in the groove, and SO extremely thankful for the life that we have here in Arkansas. I wouldn't trade it for the world! 

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
