We got tickets to see the Annie movie – and saw it in Times Square (which really made us feel as if we were going to see the musical). We loved the movie, and the totally new take on a “contemporary Annie” living as a foster child in the Bronx. The kids enjoyed identifying with Annie’s romps through the city and its boroughs, especially in the opening of the movie where she rides a Citi Bike home after school! And who wouldn’t enjoy a cozy movie theater and popcorn when it’s so cold outside?

We’ve been so sidetracked by packing and moving and unpacking, we nearly forgot to enjoy the season and the changing leaves. Thankfully Central Park never disappoints, and is only a quick 20 minute subway ride away. I can’t believe the skating rink is already open, and we even spotted our Astoria neighbor Big Bird hanging in the park ..
(By the way that last photo is of our new street and house under some red leaves!)

We got to see an amazing light exhibit in DUMBO last weekend… a nice last weekend of balmy weather topped off by projected light art on Manhattan Bridge. Can’t beat it! Check the video here: http://online.wsj.com/articles/new-york-festival-of-light-in-brooklyn-rivals-times-square-1415299739
The neighbors in our ‘alley’ had a round up over the weekend… to discuss living-together things (like upcoming snow removal) and just meeting each other in general. We are one of 3 families that moved in between September and October so – lots of new kids abound! Mostly girls, but they have a giant pink battery operated car so Ezra is definitely still intrigued. And the older girls decided to break out a magic show for the crowd. I think E and Z are gonna like it here!
