I’m always at a bit of a loss with what to do on Christmas Day. This year I did something I was always curious about: we explored Manhattan while everyone else was in unwrapping gifts. As I had hoped, the tourist crowds were minimal and we could see the windows and lights on Fifth Avenue without having to struggle to see over other heads!
We then checked out the huge tree at The New York Palace Hotel before heading downtown for lunch. Best of all we got to do another holiday mitzvah – while strolling downtown we ran into a family who were feeding the homeless community in Tompkins Square Park, and Ezra wanted to jump in and help! He and my husband handed out food before we headed home for the night. I think we now have a new tradition for December 25.
and heading downtown to the East Village we found this cool 3D graffiti:

My daughter has become my stylist, and my style inspiration. She literally grimaces and calls me out when I don’t dress up to her standards. She will ask to get into my closet and pick my outfit out for me for the day – and encourages that I wear ‘clip clop shoes’ (heels) more often. ‘More color mamma’ or ‘get something with flowers’ is what she most often will advise me – and then jewelry. She rolls her eyes at my choices for small, modest jewelry and will insist I wear the big, bright (pink) pieces that she’s made for me at school. You are a lovely force to recon with little girl, and you really have inspired me to use more flair when I dress! I love my little fashionista.
(the only small jewelry she will tolerate is this tiny jingle-bell on a string that she made here:)

I’m not sure I can do a nine hour marathon of Halloween again, but it sure was fun albeit exhausting. We started at the parade at noon, and then had a party in our alley until dark when everyone went out to collect candy at least until 9pm.
Thank you gregkessler.com for all the great photos!
Oh man how did my kids get this big already? Public school uniforms and all .. Not to mention that I’m in shock that summer vacation is over, as I still have some summer pics to post and am lagging behind on keeping the blog current with all our summer adventures. Will be back with more summer scenes soon.
Meanwhile, their dad let me talk him into shooting some more professional first-day photos:
