Chicago Trip..........Dad's house, Part 1

Two days after Christmas we headed for Chicago for a week!  Getting there was a little hairy.  We had to drive Jason's truck since it's 4 wheel drive and we knew the Smokey Mountains were going to be SNOWY...........understatement.  Once we arrived (18 hours later) we had a blast!  First we celebrated Christmas with Dad and Mary and were once again SPOILED rotten!  The kids were shocked to receive a 4-wheeler!  First they were completely outfitted in winter gear (snow suits, boots, etc), then they were ushered into the garage to find waiting their brand new 110 cc RED spider-man looking 4-wheeler!  They were ecstatic and had to ride it immediately even if it was dark and freezing out! LOL  Jason got a super nice flat screen TV for the bedroom and much needed tools.  I was so happy to get new luggage and a toaster oven (and my FAV Philosophy products!)  Thanks guys for the AWESOME gifts and for a very FUN week together!

Dang, was all that stuff you listed from your dad and Mary? If so, can I be adopted into the family. I could be the giant daughter he always dreamed of :)
