Write-in vote?

It's Election Day here in the city of Chicago and Isla is making one last campaign pitch for her favorite mayoral candidate. Today's ballots will not hold the name "Richard M. Daley" for the first time in 22 years.

We think ZAB is a great replacement!

Good morning, Princess!

"I grant you more snow today!"

Happy Birthday, Big YiaYia!

Even though you're 86, you don't look a day over 85. I love you!

Unfortunately, not the DQ treat! What a snow storm - complete with thunder and lightning! The last official reading at O'Hare is 20.2". We're not sure of our exact total here, but after all of the drifting and shoveling (and even more shoveling!) the piles are nearly as tall as Isla. The Blizzard of 2011 is the 3rd snowiest on record in Chicago.
The view out of our window when we woke up.

It was easier to walk down the street than the sidewalk, despite the fact that a plow was headed right for these people.

When Isla woke up, she saw the windows were covered in snow and said, "What happened?" Later that afternoon, we took her outside so she could see for herself!

At least America's most famous groundhog predicted that spring isn't far away. Hard to imagine when we look outside! But, the best part of today is that it's Papa C's birthday! We're sure you'll have a happy one, but wish we could've celebrated with you.

Happy Birthday, Poppy! We love you!
