.. we were on a mission to find some hot chocolate, and stumbled upon the Ritz Crystal Room at Remember When Antiques. The kids were just happy to peel off snow suits and settle in to a hot cup of cho – but the adults enjoyed checking out all the clothes and items from the 40s and 50s. It looked like an old theater house to me… and there were still a lot of holiday decorations abound; like sugar plums from the 40s that I seem to remember seeing at my grandmother’s house way back when.
How do they keep the dust away from these little tchotchkes? I do love the dresses…

On Christmas day we stayed indoors for the most part because that warm spell was broken by the coldest snap ever! Our friends invited us to their house for a little dinner, and because Lea and Mia’s mom is from Germany we felt a little bit of German Christmas in the air. The exception of course was the ‘Simon’ game under the tree – that was a piece of my own past!

We are happy to be back in NYC with its crazy shops (the key store in the West Village covered in keys), streets lined with Christmas trees for sale, holiday windows, good food (stopped at Saigon for Vietnamese fair) and a play at NYU featuring the Dinosaur Train crew!
