Marissa does or learns something new every day now. The other day she crawled across the room to where I was standing, pulled her self up on my leg, looked up at me and said "Up!" It was the cutest thing ever. She's getting better and animal noises and her repertoire now includes: dog, owl, snake, turtle, lion, sheep and monkey. I think that's all. She continues to eat well consuming everything from spinach and broccoli to yogurt to Cheerios to chicken. She's an equal opportunity eater. She now walks behind a little mower-like thing as well.

Modeling her spring collection.
On the sad news side of things, I had my last Bears Season Ticket Holder Advisory Group meeting. The group meets six times a year and provides feedback to the Bears on everything from game day operations to marketing pieces. It's good fun, but your term only lasts two years.
Newly remodeled Halas Hall.
Yes, welcome us!
A typical breakout session; 8-10 of us around a table talking.
Our parting gift: a personalized game ball. That's going in the trophy case!
My last picture...which happens to be on the site of where I slipped and fell about a month earlier. Ha!
ESDNM came into town to call on our clients last week. Though we've had a horrible winter, when he landed it was 48 degrees!! It literally had snowed 6 inches the night and morning of the day he arrived. The next day, more melting and more 40's. Then he left town in the rain and the cold moved in shortly thereafter. Here's a link to the restaurant we tried called Carriage House. Pretty good food. Not all was easy-peasy though. This cherry picker broke down and blocked our exit from my parking spot. We had to do our first meeting via conference call. Later, I was able to go over a snow bank that the contractors shoveled out for cars to get by. It was a little strange.
