many words and many pictures.

Warning, this post will be very long and filled with pictures! If I could just do this more frequently it would be a lot easier! I have so many random pictures from the past month and a half, I don't even know where to begin! I decorated for Christmas 2 days after Halloween. I know some people think that is crazy, but it makes me happy so that is why I do it! We had a good Thanksgiving, it was hard to be away from our families but we kept busy cooking and we were invited to a ward member's home for dinner with a few other families. It was very nice of them to include us and it was a good time! Chris's parents were able to visit us the week after Thanksgiving because Gary had a conference. It was so fun to have them here. We went downtown one day, and they stayed with us for a couple of nights. They also took Trey for us one night so we could have a date and sleep in Saturday morning. That was amazing:) I have really tried to get us out of the house during the day if I can. Sometimes it is too cold and I am too lazy! When the weather is nice we usually go to a park, and some days we go to the zoo because it is free! We also like going to museums or the aquarium. I love going downtown, but that only happens once in a while. Trey doesn't love being in his stroller too long:)I have also been temping at a dental office, usually about once a week. It has been good to work and make some money for Christmas. Starting in January I will try to find a solid part time job. I would love to work 2 days a week if possible, that way I can still spend most of my week with Trey. In one week we are going back home for Christmas!!! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!! So pretty much that is what has been goin on. Now for the pictures.....
Other than needing two more chairs, my dining room is done!!

I felt like sewing something, so I used my fabric scraps to make a Christmas pillow!

Can you see the tiny baby gorilla in his mom's arms?
This is an awesome play place at the zoo. Trey isn't brave enough yet:)
Museum of Science and Industry. I want to go there by myself someday so I can look, they have so many cool things!
Huge train track! I took this from the floor above and couldn't fit it all in the picture.
This picture and the next one are from the Field Museum. Also a very cool place.
The next 7 pictures are from the children's museum at Navy Pier. So fun:)
