Thanks to the stinging rebuke of my dear friend Franny P, I have added three new albums of pictures (available on the right sidebar) including from our recent trip to Walt Disney World, which I found to be shockingly wonderful. I guess I thought it would just be cheesy, and that I was kind of a tool for going. But the joke was on me. We all had an amazing time. Enjoy the pics!
Most of you know I grew out my beard. I decided a few months ago that if the Bears made the Super Bowl that I would shave it down to a "Bears fan" or "Ditka" moustache. So I did. Here's the evolution of that process. Warning: all facial hair pictured is real. Please don't try this at home. (Click continue reading to view)
And it's a doozy. First snow day in years around here. We got about 14 inches, we're guessing. The kids didn't know what a "snow day" was. They got up around 6:30 and Heidi said: girls, it's a snow day today, thinking they would realize they had no school. They were like: cool, a snow day, better get ready for school. So we're hoping to sleep in, and eventually we realize they're not getting the concept. Kaila was upset she had to miss school because she didn't want to miss Pizza Day. They had fun after all. Picture at left is Ellie next to the trees in our backyard on Saturday. See more pics in the photo album area.
