In three weeks from today, Leah and I will be in beautiful Vermont, getting ready for Christmas and enjoying the beautiful scenery and fun with family. We can't wait!
Every year in Chicago, we play host to a market in the middle of Daley Plaza downtown. It's called the Christkindlmarkt. You can find food and small shops, mostly from Germany, but with other areas of the world represented as well. Leah and I took a train downtown last night and enjoyed a cold cold evening there. I wasn't expecting a Christmas tree or even a private nativity scene in the middle of Daley Plaza, but enjoyed them both. We came away with some excellent hot chocolate, some sweet treats, a tree topper, and some fun photos!
Today we're headed to Harvard Illinois to Ben's Christmas tree farm to find and cut down the perfect balsam fir for our apartment. We can't wait to have our placing smelling like Christmas!
