This weekend was one of friends, shopping and snow. On Saturday we ventured downtown with some LSTCers to the Christkindlmarket, a German open-booth market in Daley Plaza, with is also home to Chicago's giant Christmas tree and menorah. It was beautiful with all the lights, but it snowed all day long and into the night, so we were very cold! Much to Zach's dismay, I decided the best way to warm up was to head over to State St. for some indoor shopping. We met back up with friends for dinner, then hopped on the Red Line to come home.

On Sunday we woke up to 10 inches of snow, so we dug out the car and made our way north to Evanston for church. Afterward we enjoyed lunch from Chipotle and did some suburb-style shopping. Later that evening we crossed the courtyard to visit and play cards with Erin and JT before we all leave for Christmas. In the meantime we've had fun with Mr. Wilson playing in the snow...he loves it!

Looks like you had a ball. How was Kris Kringle? Did you get to sit on his lap or give him your Christmas list? You all drive safely. We'll see you soon.
