Welcoming 2012

 We welcomed the new year with a lighthearted meal at Phoenix in Chinatown with our friends the Gills and their extended family from Washington.  Finn was delighted to discover Jim and Sue's nephews are soccer loving guys, too.  The boys instantly hit it off and even rang in the New Year playing soccer in the back yard!  The rest of us enjoyed lots of conversation, a brief puppet show, and a little bit of bubbly before 2012 was officially upon us!
On New Year's Day several of our favorite LGC friends came over to hang in the Elsmo Vortex.  Cozy fare and coffee set the tone for our cuddly day!  As much as enjoyed our turkey, cranberry and orange sandwiches, wonton soup, Chicago style skins, and a shimp po'boys on homemade micro baguettes the company was even better!  I cannot think of a better way to start off a new year!

Happy New Year to the Elsmo four. Callahan has the exact same coat as Finn...same color. But him growing 7-8 inches last year rendered it useless...it's like new, probably out of style by the time karrick can where it.
