Magic in the City

In the Opera House

In front of City Hall before The Nutcracker

Dressed for The Nutcracker at the Palace Hotel Today the storms are moving over the Shire with such force! Last night I thought we might float away! We had such a wonderful weekend in the city with the kids. Instead of a lot of gifts under the tree, this year we decided on an experience the kids won't soon forget. The looks on their faces upon entering the Palace hotel were priceless and they ran up and down the lobby trying out the big velvet chairs. Sharing the Nutcracker Ballet with them meant so much to me and my memories of being a little girl were vivid in my mind and heart. The next day we walked around Union Square looking at the Macy's windows, the giant Christmas tree in the center and had breakfast at Lefty O'douls. We ended our city trip with ice skating outside at Embarcadero Center and the kids loved the lights at the Hyatt Regency. Now on to the week of baking! More persimmon bread to go into the oven!
