Thanksgiving in NYC

central.park.pair

Daddy and Roman take in Central Park. We sorta forgot his coat, so he is wearing about 32 sweaters. Oh the cuteness. Where are those two.....

Photographic evidence of me not letting go of the girl (except for bathroom breaks and eating).

And now Nicolas can say he skated in Central Park. This should really be a video, but I didn't think that fast. I don't know what you call what he's doing here but he landed it. Some sorta jump twist the board in the air thing then landing on the board. I really need to work on my action shot skills. And my skate term skills. And lots of other skills, but I'm trying to keep this post brief.

cousins.in.the.park

My 6 and my brother's 4 (mostly in the front there). Roman is being held up by a hiding Daddy, which may explain that "hhhheeeyyyyy!!!!" look on his face. I can't explain the look on Nicolas's face except pointing out that its Nicolas.

And a quick blur of the gorgeousness that is New York at night during the holidays. We spent all Friday in the city with 10 children. Despite how that sounds it was such a dreamy, fun day. Cocoa in the park, playgrounds, FAO Schwarz, a chance encounter with Elmo, and pizza for dinner.

Forgive the family photo indulgence here, but this is what I have to show for the past 7 days!
hope your weekend was wonderful.

kiss, Anna

  9. I am now going to make your day.

    I was reading this post and Dustin walked by. "Who is that with Anna? Is that her sister?"

    I told him you had her when were young, but he's not buying it. "Nope, they're sisters."

  37. Your family is beautiful and it's just so obvious that you love being together. And, yes, she looks like your sister. I guess there's something to say for being a young mother (me too). Maybe I'll get that someday! And Nicholas is way too cool. I bet you already have to fend of the groupies, eh?
