getting in the spirit
I've bought my ski stuff. I had pretty much ignored North Face
in my time in Chicago, even though they have a massive store at the bottom of the Hancock Center
but it's excellent for all thing's skiing, boarding and climbing.
Then last night I became fully engulfed in the Christmas spirit, which hasn't always been the case. We went and listened to the Chicago Children's Choir sing carols in Millennium Park
. It was a happy feeling listening to the kids sing all the old favourites and we're even considering popping into midnight mass now, that's if I can stay awake.
Later we saw Pursuit of Happyness
, which I thought because of my relationship with my son would end with me balling but it didn't. I was disappointed in the obvious story line and the slow pace of the movie, even though it is based on a true story
. Will Smith's son Jaden is a star though.
