I've not had particularly good luck with still pictures from this in previous years, so this time I took out my FlipCam, which got much better images (I suspect that frame-by-frame they're as blurry as the still shots, but as they're moving, it looks better), and put together this little video:
I wonder (given my new schedule) if there's any chance of me shooting some video of the Santa Train ... which is another of those "Chicago holiday events" that I tend to like to catch.
This week, with Thanksgiving, also features us getting up early (well, it's no longer early for me, as I'm out of the house by 5:30 every morning to get out to Lombard before 8am!), and going down to the loop for the Thanksgiving Parade ... then, on Friday, we go see the Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey Circus at the United Center. This is then closely followed by Daughter #1's birthday (she was due on Thanksgiving, but I guess wanted to hang out to have some turkey dinner), which is a big one - she's turning 18! This, of course, then is followed by Santa, New Years, the NFL Playoffs, and Daughter #2's birthday, a couple of days before Valentines Day. Tis' the season, eh?
