Just thought you might want to see the kids rooms! Today the unimaginable happened and they were all clean .....on the same day.....at the same time. So we decided to mark the momentus occasion with some photos and with a reprieve from the constant threat of calling Niece Nash and asking her if we could be on "Clean House". Evie usually shares a room with Callie , but just recently she really wanted to have her own space. She begged to be able to sleep in the guest room. She says she will give it up whenever someone comes to visit, so don't worry! Annie and Callie and I moved her things to the room one day and surprised her when she came home from school. She was very excited. She still has her drums in her old room and can stay there whenever she wants.

What a perfect New Year's Eve 2010. We went to Asahi, which was a hibachi style steak house. The kids loved it, and a few of them tried sushi for the first time! Then we went over to our neighbors house for a bit and then came back to ring in the New Year's at home. Sarah, we banged pots and pans too! We woke up and looked at our pans the next day.....they were a little worse for wear! We are so thankful for all of our friends and family and wish you all a Happy 2011!
That'd be us. Jim and I met Mike, Marianne, Kay and Frank down in New Orleans to celebrate all of our January birthdays.....and also to see our nephew, Robbie , play in a Jazz festival. He is an AMAZING guitarist, and we couldn't believe the level of talent of his jazz band from New Trier. Way to go Robbie.....and thanks for giving us the excuse to come with you to New Orleans!
