Happy New Year everyone! We are back in Austin after a 10 day whirlwind trip to Chicago/Indianapolis/Darien/Sycamore/Crystal Lake/Sterling. Phew! It was great to end the year and start 2017 with family and friends.
|Kyle's family wanted to get in on the fun|
|Matching Christmas PJs tradition still alive!|
We drove to Indiana for we celebrated Christmas with the Judges. Lots of kisses with Yosephine, quality sibling time and hilarious reverse charades.
After Indiana we spent the night with our newly engaged friends! We took them to Maggianos to celebrate the soon-to-be newlyweds. :)
We spent New Years Even in Crystal Lake at Pete's new house. Pete was the best man at our weeding and Kyle is the best man in his upcoming September wedding. (Speech is pending).
As a Christmas gift to us, Kyle's parents planned a Chicago adventure where we finally visited the home of the World Series Champions, bought enough Cubs apparel to dress the entire team, stepped off the ledge at the top of the Willis Tower, and much more!
Last but certainly not least I got to spend some quality girl time with my college friends, Maggie and Chelsea. Even though we don't see each other that often and live so far apart, the second we are together it's like no time has passed. Don't you love friends like that??
