Merry Christmas

Christmas comes and goes so fast. We had a fabulous day. I am sad, however, that we managed to only take one picture today. ONE! We can't go back now.
Gavin asked for a school bus from Santa and he got it! It was the toy that he played with the most today. He also got a scooter which will hopefully be a favorite in the weeks and months to come. He was excited for Christmas all week and asked every day if he could open the presents under the tree. I hope that Boyd and I can be better about helping him see the true meaning of Christmas in the years to come. We did act out the Christmas Story and Gavin insisted on being the star.

We had a great Christmas season. We probably pushed ourselves to hard to do too much, but there are some things you can't miss during Christmas in New York. Here are a few highlights with a few pictures since I managed to take more pictures..

We attended Winters Eve at Lincoln center and saw Father Goose perform. We made it to the train show at the Botanical Gardens and at Grand Central Station.

We caroled on Park Avenue in 10 degree weather in front of an old church where people from all faiths join in singing Christmas carols.
We chopped our own Christmas tree.
We took a ride on the Santa train.

We had a great white elephant gift exchange.

We saw White Christmas on Broadway and we went to the Red Hot Holiday Stomp at Lincoln Center.

Made our peppermint bark at Monica's.
Made Christmas ornaments at Little Learners.
We even made it to Macy's to see Santa

We made it to Denver for a very Merry Christmas.

We hope you all had a wonderful day!
