Grandma Leaves...reality sets in!

This is going to be a short post as I should already be in bed. I will add some more information and pics in the next couple days.

Grandma got home safely, but we ended up having to change the plans. Looking at the weather last Friday made me realize it was going to be treacherous getting to Chicago on Saturday. They were under a winter storm warning. So I ended up changing Grandma's bus from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning. The storm did end up being pretty bad, so I am glad we changed it. Sunday was an early morning since Grandma's bus left at 8:45 am. We left the house a little before 5 am to make sure we had enough time. Needless to say we were all pretty tired. After we got Grandma off we bummed around. Danny was with us, so the guys thought they would be able to hit all of the computer stores that are in Chicago that we don't have- Tiger Direct, MicroCenter... The only thing they didn't realize was that we would be in Chicago at 8:30 am on a Sunday. Nothing opened until 10 or 11. They guys were disappointed, but we still had fun. We went to IKEA for a couple hours, and then we had lunch at Sweet Tomatoes. It was delish!

Yesterday was our first day of daycare since Grandma is gone. Things have changed since last week when I posted. Linda (Ryan's aunt) and Nicole are going to be watching the little man. I should also mention that Andrew will be occasionally as well. Yesterday he was with Linda. He pooped up his back within the first 30 minutes he was there. Nice! Other than that she said he was a good boy. He was a very lucky boy because Grandma (Pam) even stopped by on her lunch hour to see him.

Today he was with Nicole and played all day. I will have to post the cute pic she took of him. He had a great time. He was also be there tomorrow, but he will be playing with Andrew instead of Nicole.

Speaking of Andrew and Nicole, they had exciting news as they just bought a house. We are celebrating tomorrow night. On the menu we will have steak, risotto, and the yummy strawberry jello cream cheese dessert. Plus it is Wednesday, so that means LOST! Yay!

We are VERY excited about this weekend. I only have school until 12:30 on Friday because it is an in-service day. Ryan will be picking me up from school and then we are headed to Minnesota. We are going to Joel and Mindi's to stay for the weekend. Glen, Liz, and Avery are coming to, so it is going to be a Chi-Town reunion. I will make sure to take a ton of pictures. We are pumped!

Well, I am going to go to bed. I will update more later in the week!
