down town day!

Advent day #19 was a big one y'all!  We did school early and work late so we could head down town for Marshall Field (ok, I know it is Macy's now but I am still in denial) window viewing, the German Christmas market, a secret coffee mission, decor ogling, and lots of walking around the amazing city of Chicago at Christmas.

my favorite part of our day was our secret "mission": this Advent activity was for Anni to tell the person behind us that we would buy their coffee because God loves them and she wants to bless them.  She was so nervous but did great and got a big hug from the lady whose latte was on us.

I LOVED the secret. I'm sure she was SO blessed. :) Wow, it makes me miss CHI so much. I loved going to Macy's to look at the tree and those windows, and well as the market. Such a cool city!
Awesome!! Love it.

You have a German Christkindlesmarkt?? Wow! I`ve been on ours just once. On the 22th. :-) But I like our small one, don`t think it can compare to yours. ;-)
Merry Christmas, big hugs and love to you all from Germany
