New York City Trip...

Well, hello! We are on the countdown to Christmas as I know you are too.  It sounds so wonderful to be with friends and family and have good fellowship time. 

My sweet and kind father Christmas gifted the four of us with a trip to New York last weekend to see the sites and to attend Colt's game.  I had never been to NYC, and now looking back, I'm not sure why we never made this happen before. Well- money and the lack of is probably why, so thank you DBurl for a super trip, but more than thank you for being able to experience and see all that New York City offers I thank you for giving me precious time with these three women.  It was beyond good and fun and such a blessing. Best Christmas gift ever! Love you Daddy!
Things are CRAZY right now, trying to play catch up after an enchanting and wonderful trip and being sick for weeks before.

Here are some highlights of our trip. Hold on...here come lots of pictures. :)

911 Memorial- very sad and heartbreaking.



 Statue of Liberty...

 We loved looking at the gorgeous homes...
Sweet Colt played so well until he took a hit that tweaked his neck again.
I believe they would have easily won that game had he been able to stay in.
Next year...

He's the real deal. Football player with heart, but even more importantly, he has a good heart that loves God above all else. Even football.

 Lights everywhere!
 Enchanting. Rockefeller center skating rink...
 Anyone for a carriage ride? SO fun...

 The Plaza hotel...
 Our carriage ride tour guide...
 The Today show.
 Woody...
 Times Square...

We saw the most wonderful Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall. What a surprise when at the end they read the story of Jesus' birth and had a Nativity scene with live animals and some real praise going on on that stage. Thank you God that Your name was exalted there in that auditorium, in that town. It blessed us. 
You just never know. I am thankful. 
Isn't this chandelier gorgeous? 
This was in the lobby of the Music Hall.

 We found the tree! We were looking for Kevin...







 Oh no to the subway...
Rachel with Jan and Debra in front of our Roosevelt lobby Christmas tree...
Rachel was a delight. She is fearless and beautiful and lovely inside and out.
She introduced us to Uber and took care of us for two days.
We love you sweet Rachel.
 The five of us out to eat...Stanton Social.
 The lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel...Lovely...



Thanks for viewing! See you after Christmas.
Have a Merry one!!

So glad you got to experience NYC - but especially at Christmas!! We have been cheering for Colt (even though it KILLS us to cheer for the Redskins!). I have been having trouble with my pictures - which is why I have not been able to update my blog. I thought of you back in October when we went to the University of Texas. We toured the stadium which my boys loved and my Carter kept looking for signs of Colt everywhere!!!! Hope to have the pictures up soon. I am so glad Carter has such a wonderful role model in Colt!
