Day 335

Abby and I in front of the big Christmas tree at Hammes Bookstore on the campus of Notre Dame.  It was one of the best days ever.

This is what happens when the little people get a hold of my camera.

Day 332

Look who came to town on top of a fire truck.  The big guy himself!

Day 331

This may have been taken on Thanksgiving, but this is just how Dick looked last night after Notre Dame beat USC to remain undefeated and earn the right to go to the BCS championship game.  We are pretty darn happy around here.  I told him he brought them luck by being an usher at the games this year.  Stranger things have happened.

Day 330

Natalie and Emma were frozen, but smiling as they watched the Christmas parade and waited for Santa.  Couldn't the weather have held just one more day?

Day 329

I'm not sure how many times we have to explain the difference between the pool and the hot tub before they really get it?

Day 326

Here's something you don't see every day.  A lady at Notre Dame told us that bikes are the #1 thing stolen thing on campus.  I think this one was just "misplaced".

Day 325

This was the first time I saw the Golden Dome from the inside. 
Isn't it beautiful?

Day 324

It's Manti Te'o taking the field on Senior Day at the Notre Dame / Wake Forest football game.   Oh, did I mention that I was there?  It was awesome!!!!  38 - 0 win to continue the unbeaten Notre Dame season.  They are 11-0 for the season.

We are pretty serious about our bonfires.  Go big or go home!

Day 321

It's kind of hard to believe that this used to be the tallest building in Chicago at one time.  Of course, that was also when I was a kid.  That was a long time ago!

Day 320

This is me standing out on the Skydeck at Willis Tower.  I edited the picture to remove my thighs because they looked like tree trunks at that angle.  I think you get the picture though.  I was standing on a little rectangle of plexiglass 113 floors up in the air.  Scary, but damn cool at the same time.  Dick was out there too, but he didn't take a very good picture.

Day 319

Three little cuties watching the family flag football game in the rain.

Day 317

I thought this only happened in movies, but I was wrong.  It happens in Chicago!

Day 316

This picture cracks me up.  It's Dick and I in the Bean.  We look like we are three feet tall and 400 pounds!  We had a great day, by the way.

Day 315

We are taking advantage of good weather and my day off school to head into Chicago to bum around.  Dick has never seen the Bean.  We'll be stopping there.

Day 310

It was a beautiful sunrise.  It's a good thing I was heading to an early morning 5k or I would have missed it.

Day 309

Trying to get a really good picture of these three monkeys together is nearly impossible, but dang they are cute!  No doubt about that.
