Christmas trip to the Big Apple

Yesterday we spent the entire day together as a family basking in an annual tradition of visiting New York City during the month of December to take in the Christmas hoopla. Usually my brothers come with us but this year both had to back out. While sad that our tradition going with them didn't happen this year, we still went and had a really great day.

Plenty of Christmas things to see and do...

The city was a lot less crowded this year and it was strange to have room around us during our annual family picture at Rockefeller Plaza.

Love me some Sofia Vincenza

My parents gave the girls some spending money for the day and they were excited to pick something out in the Disney Store in Times Square. They were awesome about picking out one thing for themselves and getting in line to pay.

Can never go wrong with the roasted nuts found on every other street corner.

Of course she had to have her picture taken with this guy.

Freedom Tower on our drive down to Little Italy.

How excited was she to find a restaurant named after her? The doorman gave her a business card and she was all smiles!

So glad to have continued with our tradition and we had a really great day. While I love going with my brothers too, it was nice to just have a family day and really enjoy one another and doing something that we all love to do.

  3. Thank you Coleen! We had a great time and the weather was very warm for December. Last year we were completely bundled up for the chill in the air.
    Thanks Em! It was so fun, we had such a good day with the girls.
