So these past few weeks have been going by too quickly! Where has this year gone? It’s already almost Christmas!

We traveled to Chicago on Sunday for a quick two-day trip. We went to the Bears game Monday night, saw “Million Dollar Quartet”, and did some shopping. Of course, the day we got in to O’Hare, the snow was blowing. And it didn’t quit for quite some time.

As you can see, it was already accumulating pretty well. We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, a special treat. There was a beautiful tree in the lobby:

We had awesome views from our corner room:

The Bears game was incredibly cold, but we were lucky to have seats in an area that had a great inside section. Not many braved the freezing wind:

This was actually not as crowded as it got later in the game. And once Mike Ditka’s jersey was retired, everyone left.

Today I’ve been journaling about the trip in my holiday journal:
