We celebrated the weekend before Christmas in St. Louis. On Christmas Eve, we opened presents at Mr. F’s parents house. Mr. F loves his new Master Chef apron that I won on the Brave Apron blog by Anna Rossi, a season 3 contestant. We also made apple and pecan pies for the annual family dinner. We had Christmas dinner at Aunt Cammi’s with wild turkey. (I love my new Frye boots too.) The wild turkey is pretty amazing, especially with bacon braided on top. Mr. F’s cousin gave us a great photo of the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan for Christmas, in anticipation of our move! We drove back to Chicago Christmas Day to pack up our apartment. The moving truck arrived on the morning of the 26th! Lyra was sad to say goodbye to the Christmas tree.
This weekend we drove up to Appleton, Wisconsin to visit my Granny Kay! We went out to dinner along the Fox River. It seems all the snow we’ve missed in Chicago was in Wisconsinespecially near Granny Kay’s house!
Today is my last day of work! We’re celebrating our last night in Chicago and New Year’s Eve with Katy and Rob. I can’t believe this time tomorrow we will start our drive to Seattle!
