Guesstures at the Shingles
Part of our visits with friends for the holidays, here we are with the Shingles playing "Guesstures." The girls are getting so tall!

'Avatar' Fun at Navy Pier
Bob and I had the greatest time when we went to see Avatar last night at Navy Pier. Of course, the movie was sensational. With the 3-D glasses (as shown here) and six-story IMAX screen, the experience was breathtaking.
While waiting for the movie to start, we bumped around the Pier, taking photos in the main courtyard, Crystal Gardens and near the huge ferris wheel. What a memorable Christmas!

Last week, our company had a "Holiday Memories" tree where we submitted photos or stories about past holidays and this is the photo I submitted. It's a formal photography shot that my family took a few years before my father passed away. My co-worker said he wouldn't have recognized me. Well, I cut my hair shorter now ...

High Rise Holiday Party
Friday, December 18, 2009
My work had its traditional cookie exchange and Secret Santa "reveal" yesterday. Of course it becomes a slow death by cookie day, but we survived. I don't bake, so I stopped by an Italian bakery and got cool cookies and these deep-fried rice balls with beef inside (spinanch and cheese in others). They were interesting.
My Secret Santa fooled me by purchasing slightly feminine gifts and putting them on my desk on the days when one of our part-timers comes in. Turns out it was a guy co-worker who's full time. I was totally played.
Oh, the wreath around my head is because I'm the ghost of Christmas Present.
Not sure why this photo is on its side, but enjoy!

Cat in a Box
Alright, I don't have the cutest cats in the world. But they come close. Here they are getting into the holiday spirit by checking out the boxes I'm using to wrap presents.

Rockin' Santa Rocked!
Last Saturday's School Street fundraiser "Rockin' Santa" made $1,000! We were very pleased with everything, from the band to the bake sale to the turnout. Bob played Santa for the kids at the end (note the mullet on "Rockin' Santa.") and after we had packed everything up, a bunch of people dressed as Santas walked into the bar and I got a picture with them. All around a great time. Here's to next year!

Photos From The Jen and Joe Show
Our first School Street fundraiser of the fall, The Jen and Joe Show, was a bang-up success and here's the photos from Mary O'Kiersey of foxpath2 to prove it.
I hope our upcoming fundraiser at the Empty Bottle with A Random Group of People band is as fun and successful--I'm sure it will be. See everyone Saturday!
