Christmas in Chicago...

I have the post Christmas blues.  Its not so much the actual holiday being over that gets me bummed but that we have to leave our family and friends and head back to Minnesota. 

We spent the first few days with Tim's family.  Enjoyed some Grandma and Pop, Aunt and Uncle and Cousin time.  This is the first year that Rory understood the concept of Santa!  It was fun leading up to Christmas to explain how Santa rides the sleigh to each house and bring presents and explain all the things about Christmas that are a given to even me!  



 

Christmas Eve Rory got to get all dressed up and go to church with the family.  We then stopped by the annual Christmas Eve party for a little while and still got an exhausted Rory to bed pretty late.


Christmas day we spent and my SIL's.  We had lots of cousin play time including some dress up!  It sure is nice to have older kids around that Rory can go off an play with!


We opened a ton of gifts!  Rory's favorite is her Figaro stuffed animal that she now sleeps with at night!  And My favorite is the Dunkin Donuts Chicago Coffee mug!

Thursday I went downtown with my Mom and Michael and Auntie Pam and we enjoy a great lunch!

Friday we went to the Children's Museum and Rory had a great time!


 
And we ended the trip hanging at my Mom's and got to see Nikki and Maddie for a couple of hours.
