The Great Storm of 2011!

Snowmaggedon, Snowpocalypse, and my personal favorite, Chronicles of Snownia (stole that one from Steph). It has been one snowy week in Chicago. I think our total snowfall this week, including what we got today, is around 24 inches. Thank goodness this city knows how to deal with crazy weather, because we were working on a serious case of cabin fever. On a positive note, my mom was here for 12 whole days! She was supposed to be here for just a week, but between our storm and Tulsa's storm she was delayed another five days. It was awesome having her here for so long - I'm going to miss her!

This will be a huge catch-up post. First of all, where did January go? It's been almost a month since our last post, and time has really flown. We have been nice and busy at work and have had some pretty fun weekends. Last Friday we went to dinner at Volare with some of my work friends - the food was AMAZING, and we will definitely be going back. And last night we took my mom for dinner at Glenn's Diner to thank her for all she did for us while she was here. Tonight Jim came over and joined us for some chili and Super Bowl watching.

We have a busy few weeks coming up. Next weekend is John's big Grammy event (post to come), and we will have family in town the two weekends after that. Then it will be March! Where is 2011 going?

Hope everyone is staying warm! Below are some pictures of the crazy snow in our neighborhood.

People skiing down Lincoln - not something you see every day!

Our street and lots of buried cars. We have yet to see how
badly John's car is buried.

What greeted John at the front door when he made a Starbucks run for us.
