T'was the Night Before Christmas Tradition

After putting on our Christmas pj's, we drink hot cocoa, watch Christmas Story, set out milk and cookies with a letter for Santa and take a before picture of our tree. It is now 10:15 and the girls are fast asleep. Sara will be home shortly after spending the night with her boyfriend and his family. I am sure we will be up early so I am off to wrap a few more gifts and get finished for the night. I want to wish all my friends and family a Merry Christmas!

Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show and more

My mom surprised my girls and I with tickets to go see The Rockettes and the fantastic Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall. Also to my surprise, My Aunt and 3 cousins also joined in on the fun. We decided to take the ferry over to NY and the girls we are so happy. We took a bunch of pictures just on the ferry alone. I even got a few good ones of the Intrepid Museum. After docking we took a bus directly to Radio City where we watched street dancers, ate hot pretzels and took some more great pictures. Adeline was already working in NY so she met up with us and we headed into the Music Hall. It was so beautiful! We got 3D glasses to wear in the beginning of the show... that was really cool. The show was absolutely amazing. The Rockettes have to be the most perfect dancers. The girls were so thrilled with the show especially with Santa. After the show, we went to a fifties restaurant; Stardust, and had some dinner and the waiters and waitresses took turns singing. That was a great time as well! Since it wasn't windy and just cold out we decided to walk over to Rockerfeller Center to show the girls the Christmas Tree. Absolutely beautiful. Emma and Victoria wanted to ice skate with everyone. I told them they need to learn first. lol Finally we got back on the bus to the ferry and back home to NJ. Thanks mom for a great night! Take a minute to look at the slideshow below for some fun pictures.
