Bye-bye Old, Hello New!

The long awaited moving day finally arrived!  We were slightly sad to say goodbye to 1117 but our excitement about our new home definitely took over!

Got unpacked in record time thanks to everyone’s help!














Dumpster diving for something that accidentally got thrown away…








Home sweet home!

Thanksgiving 2017

We spent Thanksgiving at the lake this year.  Check out our impressive veggie tray!







The weather was incredible.  It was soooo nice outside that we got to sit by the fire and play outside for hours.

Grandparents Day at Joey’s school.  He was so lucky have have 4 grandparents & 1 great grandparent able to attend!








Joey made a Tzedakah box and learned all about the meaning of giving to those less fortunate.  Since that time, he’s been soliciting donations from his family members in the hopes of donating a full box to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation.  He even asked the valet at Bubbie & Zayde’s condo!!








We got last minute tickets to the Cubs play off game so I pulled Joey out of school and took him on a special date!








He had an absolute blast














Hey neighbor!
