Tim and I went to Chicago last weekend for some time away from our lives here in Howell. We stayed at my parents new townhouse and it was so relaxing! We had dinner with Tim's cousin Steve and his gf Holly on Friday and Saturday night and we saw Smokin' Aces on Sat. night. We did some shopping and sleeping in and it was fantastic! My dad has been home here for the last two weeks recovering from eye surgery and my parents are headed back to Chi-town tomorrow. Tim and I will be spending a lot of time in Chicago over the next couple of months I think. We have tickets to see Wicked in April and I will be visiting my friend Mandy in Chicago in April as well. My parents move out there for good the third weekend in March and we'll probably help them move too.

Tim and I are going to start working on the new house today...we've started by cleaning the kitchen and bathroom and now we have to start moving some kitchen things over there and finishing some cleaning. We are waiting on his brother to get the pieces of furniture that he wants out of the house so we can store the rest of it and have the carpets cleaned. Then we can finally beging moving some of our things over there! Our lease ends at our apartment March 31st but we would like to be moved out of here before that.

In baby-making news, month 4 didn't work either so we are currently on our 5th try. I see my doctor on Thursday and we are going to discuss some further options if the next two months don't work out either. We are hanging in there and praying that something will work the next two months. Please keep our efforts in your prayers.

We hope all of our friends and family are doing well and we miss those of you that we don't see on a regular basis!
