Did you have a great Christmas?

We had one of the best Christmas' we've ever had. We got to be with all of the kids, grandkids and my sisters and their families. It's not many years that we can get everyone together but the last two years have been a success. I only wish Mother and Dad and Jimmie and Milton could be here to enjoy their great grandchildren as well as their grandchildren. So far there are twelve great grandchildren for Mother and Dad and three for Jimmie and Milton. AND more to come I'm sure. This year is going to be a year of great blessings and answered prayers. Among the great grandchildren, the boys sure outnumber the girls. For now anyway. Just look.

Finally I have gotten my pictures uploaded from our New York City trip a couple of weeks ago. One thing before I start explaining what everything is. I was reading Pioneer Woman's blog where she and her girls went to New York City just a couple of days after we did and she talked about the girls getting these "free" hats at Rockefeller Center that cost $20. We did the same thing! There are these military guys I think it was, standing out by Rockefeller center handing out cute NYC knit hats for "free". Then they ask for a $10 donation. Oh well, the hats are cute and definitely worth it.

Ok, the first two pictures are floats and people from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day that were involved in shooting a new movie called Tower Heist. That was exciting to watch. Didn't see any movie stars though. 

This was where we ate the first night in the City. So very good. Italian family style.

Then we went to see the Rockettes. This was something I have always wanted to do. It was fabulous.

Times Square as it was getting dark.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and ice skating.

At the Today Show on Friday morning.

Jessica has a friend, Valarie, who lives in NYC and took us to a little place for lunch called Penelopes.

The Empire State building at the top. You can see for miles.
We rode the subway a lot. It was a good way to get around the City.

Jessica is standing in front of the Statue of Liberty although I probably don't have to even say that. She is as cold as she looks. The wind was blowing VERY hard.

Yeah! The big piano from the movie Big.

And of course, Central Park.
