That title sounds promising doesn’t it? Sadly I took very few pictures of all the fun we had. These are from Matt’s cell phone.
We headed into the city for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We go every year and I love that it’s our tradition. I will save you the sob story of how happy living in NYC makes me- it’s a dream come true, I get giddy every time we approach the tunnel, times square still takes my breath away, the energy is palpable, and on, and on, I can go- but the coolest thing about NYC on Thanksgiving day is that NO ONE is there! You can take a picture dead in the center of Times Square.
This year it snowed- so we went out for hot chocolate afterwards and my children spent a weird amount of time being babysat by the most lovely homeless New Yorker. And that likely sounds rude or like I’m being sarcastic- but I’m not. This man literally watched my kids as Matt and I buzzed around the Cosi fetching straws, napkins, more water, etc. He was so wonderful and I think of him daily and we did what we could to repay him.
Doesn’t the Christmas Spirit just live in the hearts of children? Not mine exactly- but yours I bet. She makes the weirdest faces when you ask her to act like your not taking a picture of her eating.
We had dinner at my best friend in Queens apartment. It was cozy and warm and lovely to be surrounded by the family that I choose 17 years ago. And the next day we headed to Home Depot and met bootleg Santa. He was fooling NO ONE!
Sunny kept calling him Santa’s Fake Friend.
On Sunday Sunny was treated to Disney On Ice by our Queens Family and she literally has never been more happy in her entire life. She dressed up for the occasion and refused to move off of the edge of her seat. Even when intermission approached she insisted on staying right where she was- they might get back on that ice!
It was a wonderful Holiday weekend! I hope yours was just as festive.
