Leaving on a jet plane

Well we leave tomorrow for the bitterly cold. We were suppose to be spending Friday afternoon in downtown Chicago, but grandma thought it would be better to not have the girls outside then. I guess it is suppose to be even colder than they thought. We are packed for the most part- there will be a few things that will need to be put in our bags in the morning. The bathrooms and kitchen has been cleaned, the laundry has been done and so has the vacuuming. I figure this way when Chad has people over for the Superbowl, it will be semi-clean.

The last few days have just flown by. Grandma and grandpa got in on Friday, they were about an hour late. I got to go and pick them up. I actually went and ran some errands before they came in. Saturday morning we took in the Children's Museum. It was fun. Maddie had too much to look at that I think she was a little overwhelmed. We then headed out to Katy Mills for the afternoon. We got some stuff at Steve and Barry's and Maddie got new Vans. She got another pair that will be her next size, because they were on sale for 10 dollars. Home it was. Grandma and I went grocery shopping while the girls napped. Saturday night we played Phase 10. Sunday was church. Grandpa and Chad went up to school to check the wetness of the field. Again while the girls napped grandma and I headed out. We hit the 75% off bookstore. We found some good deals. Then we relaxed with some Strabucks. Then it was CiCi's for dinner. Grandma has never been there and since that is our pizza place, she thought she should go. Then we played another hand of Phase 10 that night. Monday was back to work for Chad and we went to breakfast, hit the mall, and then took them to the airport.

The last couple of days have been us getting ready to come home. I hope that we all have enough warm clothes for the trip.

I'll try to post while I'm in Wisconsin, otherwise I'll make sure I do when we get back.
