We got back on Sunday night from a whirlwind week in Illinois. It was a great time. We spent a lot of time in the car driving around the state visiting some friends and family. It was pretty much an eating tour as well. We ate at all of our favorite spots…might need to change that……Anyway, got to spend some time with my sister and her family. Can’t believe how big my niece and nephews are getting.
We then drove over to spend some time with our great friends the Janes. I love this family. Our kids haven’t seen eachother in a long time but they became best buds in a matter of hours. There is nothing like a friendship with people that you know could last a lifetime. Here is Dave being Dave making us laugh.
The kids having a great time! Kasey and I.
Thanksgiving with all the fam in Naperville. We have so much to be thankful for! My families Thanksgiving is one tradition that I have cherished and want my children to experience. We have done basically the same thing for as long as I can remember. We always go to the Calvary Church Thanksgiving service at 10 am. We used to come back from that and then eat but now that some of the kids are married, they go to their inlaws and then we have dinner. The day is spent with football, family and faith. I’m a fan of games so I’m always trying to get the family to play a game or two. Its a bit harder when we do dinner because the tryptophan has taken over and everyone is in a food coma…..
And here we are again with another tradition of eating Lou Malnati’s a few days after…..oh my its good. This year we had some nerf guns that were consistantly being shot at eachother and various targets. Good times.
