Christmas is here!

...taken with a phone hence the weird discoloration of my face?! I look like an oompa loompa.

Saturday marked the beginning of Christmas...for me at least! Actually, I would be willing to bet that 100's of children agree with me judging from the screams and squeaks we heard during the Illuminating Ceremony that lit up Michigan Avenue as little ones sat perched on their dad's shoulders vying for Mickey's attention. It was all sorts of festive. After the parade we sat in the window of a local bar and people watched for hours. Classic Chicago only a little bit more cheery. Good stuff.
