Happy Easter to one and all!  We enjoyed a nice Easter with my sister and her two sons today!  The weather was beautiful, the company was good, and the food was (if I do say so myself) delicious!  Hope everyone had a good day!  Jesus is Risen, He is Risen indeed! Happy Easter! 🙂

190 N (Our Dancing Debut on ABC Chicago) by tonyc86

I found this video at the 190 North web site.  190 North is a local TV Show showing things to do and see around the Chicagoland area.  If you ever get a chance to see it, it’s on Channel 7 in Chicago.  It’s also a video podcast on iTunes or you can watch it at

The reason this one is on our website is because we happen to be on the show.  This is when Lisa and I made our dancing debut.  Honestly, this was our second time, and we never went back.  We figured, we took our dancing as far as we can.  We made it on TV. 🙂  Now the trick is to see if you can find us.  You will need Quicktime installed to see the link, but it’s worth it.

This originally aired on March 18, 2007.

The Advent season is upon us! We have the lights on the tree and all of the other decorations up.  We’ll put ornaments on the tree maybe tonight.  We have had some snow, but last night we had slushy rain.  Tony and I just came back from visiting the Mouse and Friends at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  What fun!  We attended the Candlelight Processional Concert at Epcot, with celebrity narrator John O’Hurley.  He did a wonderful job narrating the Christmas story.  There was also a marvelous Christmas parade at the Magic Kingdom with marching Toy Soldiers, Reindeer, Santa, and more!  Great fun!  We watched lots of fireworks as well.  Add cocoa and cookies, the Osborne Lights, and snow and you’ve got a great Christmas extravaganza.  We had a super time, and will definitely go back again.

October and a new car by lisapizzac72

It’s already October, can you believe it?  The Halloween decorations are up, Tony bought us pumpkin ice cream, and trick-or-treaters are right around the corner.  What will *you* be for Halloween?

Big news for October. We bought a new 2010 Ford Fusion.  This is a super nice car.  We have both enjoying driving it.  My trusty Saturn turned 10 this year, and had 116,000 miles on it.  I know by some standards she was still a baby, but what with tollway driving, I thought it was time for something new.  So there you have it.   I feel blessed that we could afford to buy a new car in times like these.  God watches over us and has blessed us with good jobs!

Happy Halloween everyone!

So we missed August did we? by lisapizzac72

So here it is,  September 10.  Looks like we missed an August update!  Probably the biggest thing we did in August was visiting St. Louis to see Mary Poppins (and the Gateway Arch).  Did you know that the Arch was built to commemorate Thomas Jefferson and the westward expansion of the United States? Neither did I, but I do now! Tony and I had a wonderful visit, took some great pictures, and are really looking forward to going back.  And Mary Poppins was super! Oh, and I went to a Cubs game with Tony ( Go Cubs!) and we went bowling with friends.  Nice! So here we are in September.  What’s in store for us? Who knows!
