A New York City Christmas

There are many things I love about growing up in NYC, even if I was in an outer borough, but none of them top Christmas in New York.  The display lights at Macy's, the Christmas tree at Rockerfeller Center, all of the lights and decorations, the shops, the spirit, and of course, the Rockettes!

This year we thought Isabella was old enough to really enjoy this special time in the city, so we loaded up for a fun filled day.  First we hit up the Rock Center Christmas tree and she was just in awe at it's size.

Then we were off to FAO Schwartz where she was just beside herself in excitement, although honestly that store, while full of ambiance, is way overpriced.  Why would I pay $54 for a Lalaloopsy doll when I can pay $35 at Toys R Us?!

Anyway...then we had a quick bite to eat and it was off to see the Rocketts Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall.  She was mesmerized.  She would dance and bop her head to the songs and every time a song was done she would say, "Again, Mommy, more!"  She loved it and she sat through the whole thing.

This is my favorite scene

And one final shot at our own humble abode.

I'm so glad that I get to make these special holiday memories with her.

Love it! How old is she? We keep saying we'll take Baby when she's five. But she just turned two, and I don't know if I can wait that long! lol ... I just don't want to waste a trip if she's too young. I'm really thinking next year when she's 3 would work just fine!
