Go Cubs Go!!

So, I think everyone here realizes that I am a big Cubs fan, have been my entire life. It started way back when I was a lot younger and mom, dad, Michelle, and I would go on bus trips with the Freeport Park District into Wrigley Field at least once each summer. They were so much fun!! Now, I love making the trip as an adult. I have to say that Jason is a true Cubs fan now too, but it did take some work. The first game we went to (well, we didn't really get to see the game - it was the day Daryl Kile was found in his hotel room in Chicago) he wore a St. Louis Cardinals t-shirt, just to irritate me! I'm not really sure when he became a loyal fan or what did it, but I can say that he is one now! We have been to Busch Stadium, but I have to say that I just LOVE Wrigley Field. The atmosphere and the history that goes along with it is just amazing if you ask me. A few weeks ago we went to the game against the Cards with two other couples - one were Cards fans, the other were one of each. By the end of the game, they were Cubs fans! woo hoo! (I guess it couldn't hurt that the Cubs won!) One other thing I have to say about Cubs fans is this...they are true fans, no matter what! Wrigley Field always has huge crowds no matter the time, weather, or opponent and that is a true reflection of our loyalty. Now, granted that we have not won a World Series in the past 5, 10, 20, or even 50 years, but that's okay...."It's Gonna Happen!" and I believe this may be our year! You know...we are in FIRST place with the Cardinals three games BACK!

For those of you who enjoy the song playing after every Cubs home game win this year, "Go Cubs Go",'s the link to hear it: Go Cubs Go

So, for that 1pm game today...Go Cubs Go!

A visit with Karen, Caden, Kali, and Caleb!

Last night I went to Jason's sister's to visit. Caden is already 7 1/2 weeks old and getting so big! Look at his chubby little cheeks! I can't believe how quickly he is growing! I've been over there about once a week since he came home from the hospital. I love holding him and just looking at how much he changes. For those of you that recall he went to St. Francis when he was born, he is doing so much better now! Kali was home too, so that was nice to see her. They are getting ready to go into their third week of classes already. She is a freshman this year - high school, woo hoo!! Here's a picture of Kali making Caden smile! :-)I really appreciate being able to spend time with them. It's amazing how much closer this little guy has brought us , and I am so glad!!

New Blogger Here!

Since I've now been browsing (I wouldn't call it stalking, would you?) other people's blogs, I have decided to create one for our family! This should work out nicely since the last website we had hasn't been updated since before our house was complete! I can't even recall the address for it anymore. But now, for those of you who have been asking when we are going to update it, we'll just start over! More to come...

A very special THANK YOU to my friend, Melissa, for creating my page for me!!
