After opening presents and attending church on Christmas Day, we hopped on a plane and landed in Chicago to spend a few days with my parents and siblings. My aunt and uncle had offered their home to us while they were away for Christmas and it was a wonderful site to gather, smack in the middle of the country.
Joy! It's the first time we've all been together for 5+ years. It was time.
So that's where I've been:
spending hours around the table
reading on the sofas
going to the Chicago Art Institute
and Berghoffs (remember when I went there with Sam a couple of summers ago? they fixed their sign)
singing around the piano
and doing Muppet impersonations (Chris's Animal ftw)
My people. I love them.
I miss them already.
