We decided to go home the weekend before Christmas this year because of price of tickets and just the craziness of traveling during holidays! We had such a memorable trip and Nealia enjoyed every minute of it. We spent a couple days in the Chicago to hit up all the holiday musts in the city.
We got into Chicago really late and stayed at my friends house. Nealia took over rather quickly and made herself at home by breaking a candle, getting into lipstick and yogurt.
That night we went to the Lincoln park zoo lights! It was pretty cool and free and they served mulled wine!
The next day papa Mike drove down and met us for lunch and my friend katie came up on the train to meet me too. We stayed overnight in Chicago and my mom and dad took Nealia back so I could spend time with friends and have a fun night out! Before lunch we hit up the German Christkindl market downtown which was fun, but really crowded!

My friends Tim and katie and I took a walk to millennium park and hung by the “bean” we also went to the art museum, I hadn’t been there since I was 18. We pretty much had a ferris buellers day off day and it was awesome.
And after a crazy Jan packed long weekend we are back at the airport. We had a little Airport picnic, our flight was delayed 2 hours and then they lost the entire flights bags and failed to tell us until after we had all day ther for over an hour. They luckily delivered our bags today! We didn’t get home until almost 2:30pm!
