Home Sweet Home

Phew!  Two weeks on the road with three little boys sure makes for lots of work.  But it was all worth it.  Spending Thanksgiving with family is the best.  Here's a little snapshot of the weeks in review...

The highlight of the holiday was definitely Ithaca.  But before we left Naperville, there was one other little highlight.  Nothing like some free babysitting while the moms get away to play...

Thanks Mimi & Bubba Soldier Field!

Not real Bears fans
As hard as it was to fake cheering for my most hated NFL team, it was fun.  The freezing cold, the crazy drunks and the NFL atmosphere is hard to dislike when you're from the midwest.

Once we thawed out from the game and packed everything we own in our cars, we woke up at 5am the next morning and headed out on our 10 hour drive to Ithaca, NY.

Happy Henry
Sick Jake
But the trip got even longer when Jake announced he felt sick about 1/2 hour into the drive.  Poor guy had motion sickness and couldn't shake it.  Thank God for Ziplocs and a 5 1/2 year old that has good aim.

Fast forward through the fun and finally it was Thanksgiving!

Stop taking pictures

Even George got into the meal...with cheerios on the side.

Do I like green beans?
I'll eat you, too

After we ate as much turkey, wine, mashed potatoes, yams, wine, cranberries, corn, beans, wine, stuffing, gravy and wine as we could, we heard a knock at the door.

What the?

My latest behavior tool.

Santa's Spy
Jake: "You better tell him I'm good."

Meet Jolly.  He's our man.

Wow, these kids are crazy
If he can't help me, no one can.

Please help me.

A few last pictures before we left....

Silly Henry
Silly Uncle Joe
Cutest nephew ever
This year's Thanksgiving was so much fun, only 360 sleeps until next year's.  Can't wait.
