The 2015 Christmas Season

I'm continuing to catch up on blogging about some key things that occurred during the year or so I neglected blogging. Honestly, we don't have a lot going on in the present day right now (yay winter), so it's nice to catch up.

I have been wanting to do a post to document our 2015 Christmas season. It was a pretty good one, and I think it's important to get at least one summary post in my blog history. I think pictures speak more than my words, so here are some photos and details of the highlights.


We put up our tree to kick off the season.


We attended the Blood:Water Red Tie Gala.


We saw Dave Barnes at the symphony hall for his annual Christmas show


We saw Santa!


We took Connor to his very first concert ever


The concert was a Jars of Clay Christmas show


After our trip to NYC, we saw Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors do a Christmas show at the symphony hall on Dec. 23. There were tornado warnings. It was sort of crazy.


We went to church on a very warm Christmas Eve


I managed to surprise Adam with deep dish pizza from Gino's East in Chicago for our Christmas Eve dinner.


We made cookies for Santa


Connor got the purple light saber he asked for from Santa!


I love this kid


We had a fun Christmas morning



Our family came over for Christmas dinner


Connor enjoyed hanging out with Grandma. We didn't know then that it would be our last Christmas with her.


A few days later we did Christmas with some other family. This is Grandma and her best friend of like 55 years.


The whole crew
