Sorry for the lack of Posts

I know it has been a while. We are a little crazy here. Bets is getting ready to head up to Wausau on Thursday for her first baby shower! We almost have the nursery ready - if it weren't for a little learning curve on how to install chair rail we would have everything set. I promise to post pictures of the nursery in the next few weeks.

We are getting really excited - we are reading bedtime stories every night (although mom is better at it than dad), we read our first Spanish book two nights ago (thanks grandma Lis). Time is flying by so quickly - it is already mid-March -and I really can't believe this is only 12 weeks away!

Hopfully more pics after the shower this weekend, if you get any good ones feel free to email Liz - lkiburz at Yahoo.com or me - chrislucas1 at hotmail.com and we can post them here as well!

Chicago and the Baby Furniture


This weekend we were able to get away to Chicago for the weekend...it was no Florida Keys but it was still a great weekend. We were able to go see the Cezanne to Picasso exhibit at the Art Institute, had a great dinner with Mack and Dan Saturday night, and watched a great Blackhawks game (which ended in a shootout Hawks win) with Rob and Janelle - I have put some pictures from the weekend on my flickr page.

When we got home Sunday night we had a message from USA Baby letting us know that our crib and changer were available to pick up. The look on Liz's face was great. We are picking up the furniture on Thursday! We have yet to paint the nursery but now that the furniture is here we will probably get started soon. I better get it done this weekend - especially since March Madness is just around the corner! Watch out for some pictures of the nursery and the new furniture as we start putting it all together!
