Wow, what a great weekend!!! Meghan, Jason, Tom, and I headed to Chicago for a weekend of partying, shopping, and a little relaxing. Friday night we met up with my brother and Eric Hansen and we hit the town. We partied really hard and My brother and I even made it on stage at one bar to help out with a Dave Song!!! Needless to say Saturday morning was a little rough. The guys watched football all day in Lincoln Park and Meghan and I shopped until we dropped (that is into Macy's salon for pedicures and mini massages). Chicago had it's big light festival on Saturday night and after that we ate at the Cheese Cake Factory and headed back to the room.
What a great weekend and Happy Anniversary Meghan and Jason!!!

6 Years and counting!!!

Tom and I just celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary last weekend! We were able to sneak away with the VandenHout's to the Michigan State game on saturday, hit up PF Chang's in Lansing (which was Meghan and I's motivation to sit in the cold during the game), then come home relax a bit and then go to the movies. Needless to say we had a great weekend!
We've come a long way and I look forward to many more years of happiness, I love you babe!!!

I know we all say it all the time but, Time Flies!!! Ruby is now four and very excited about being a big girl! Everything is "because I'm four now mom!" In this picture she a sporting the birthday hat that the kids at school made for her, she's worn it everyday this week!
We love you Rubz and are so excited to watch you grow into a beautiful young lady.

Happy Halloween

What a great night for Trick or Treating! The kids had such a great time and kept up with the crowd. Tommy was Bob the Builder; however, everyone was calling him Joe the Plumber and Ruby was a witch which was a last minute decision from her original Barbie costume. It's so awesome to see how excited the kids get about life's little things, it makes being a parent so special.

Tommy Leo turns 2!

WOW, 2!!! Where did the time go? Little Thomas is two and such a little man. He was so excited to celebrate his birthday at Chu-ne-cheese and have a BOB cake. He is so funny, every time we ask him how old he is going to be he says, "eight." If only we could freeze time!!!
We love you buddy

Chicago Trip

What a GREAT weekend in Chicago! This past weekend we took our yearly trip to Chicago to hang with my brother. We had beautiful weather, great for shopping and great for enjoying the town. Friday night we arrived and hit the town, we ate at my favorite The Cheese Cake Factory and then headed up to the 96th floor for some drinks (the view was unbelievable) then we headed down to Rush St for some bar hoppin. Saturday the girls shoppped all day and the boys never left ESPN needless to say they had a big head start on a buzz for the night. Then we had a nice dinner and hit up a comedy show which was super funny. Sunday we viewed a condo that my brother was interested in, had bunch, and then headed home. We had a great time, looking forward to next year!!!!
