welcome back to the neighborhood

Illinois welcomed us home with it's usual glamour. It is so sweet to us, to say "we missed you" with gloomy weather and traffic....

here's the top of the Sear's tower in the clouds - that's pretty cool.

Um...i'm not sure if this is a mid-western thing, or just a gurnee thing, but it seems really cool here to adorn your yard with all sorts of figurines. click on the picture to see it bigger. I mean, my grandmother has a goose on her front porch that she exchanges outfits according to the current season or holiday - that's cool! what goes on here is just weird. most of the time the statues aren't life size or realistic looking at all...i'm not sure why this seems so great, but really, a lot of the yards around here look like this. this one is just down the street from our house.
