As promised...

Here are some pictures from our trip back home to Chicago!!  Upon arrival, we were greeted to BELOW ZERO weather and SNOW STORM!  How's that for a Welcome Home?!  My dad hurt his arm so guess who had the pleasure of cleaning up after the snow storm?!  hahahahaha!!  

But it was all worth it to be able to spend Christmas with my family!  Here are some pictures we took on Christmas day!

All my nieces and nephews!  This was not an easy picture to get!  lol!

My dad and my nephew, Alex



In addition, we celebrated the twins 2nd birthday while we were back home!  Here are some pics from that day!

Jeremy was more interested in the candy bags sitting on the table than anything else!  haha!  That's my Jeremy!

And here they are in their party hats!  

And then we all got pretty dazzled up for a big New Year's Eve party!  

And then it was time to say our "good-byes"!  There were no tears until Daniel had to say bye to his grandpa!  These two adore each other!  It always breaks my heart!

Oh yeah, and this guy...a year later...he still doesn't like me too much with my big ol' camera!  I think I traumatized the poor kid!  Oopsie!

Of course, I have tons more pictures, over 200 to be exact (LOL!), but this was the jist of it!  Can't wait to go back next Christmas!!

Looks like you had a great time there and I love the Jazlyn's and Jeremy's Dora and Diego cake. Kylian does still like them a lot too and I bet he would be over the moon with a cake like this. Better not show this to him and give him ideas *LOL*.

It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG
