As our trip through Illinois continued, we drove about 4 hours outside of Chicago to Josh's hometown. We had good weather for our drive, but soon after we arrived it started to snow!
We decided to take advantage of the snow and go sledding, so we all bundled up and hit the hills! I realize that I look ridiculous here; I'm wearing my aunt's face mask that she uses for running. The mask is lightweight, but keeps you really warm and stays in place! I loved it, and highly recommend one to any of you who live in the cold country!
At Christmas Eve service, I didn't even know this picture was being taken, but I think it kind of captures how I was feeling that night... During the service I was really missing my babies. I was having lots of random thoughts and emotions, and battling with understanding Why ME? Why US? Why Heidi, Lily, Paige, and Rylan?
Wishing they were with us today and hoping for a better 2010.
