The presents are all opened, the house is a huge disaster...candy and toys everywhere, but it is a happy house. We are recovering and spending time playing together with all the new toys. I am thankful for my friends and family and for the gift we were all given on Christmas day. Hope that you all had a wonderful day. My sister has a great poem on her blog you should go check out about the day after christmas. very funny, and clever sister!!!! Blogging will probably be a little slow between now and the new year...enjoy all your celebrations!!!

This is one of my favorite pictures from today...Chris got to make a trip to the 5th avenue Apple store. He was more than thrilled. This is a picture of him gazing up from the depths of the store. It is very cool...from above ground it just looks like a big glass box, then you go down a winding staircase and you are in the store, where geeks and nerds abound!!! They all have their silly saying shirts, in red of course for Christmas. He did manage to get a Christmas present out of the trip...he picked it but i am still insisting that we wrap it and it go under the tree with everything else. As a side note....isn't he is just too cute???!!! I love him!
ps..i do have a few fun crafty and sewing things to share but i am afraid if i shared them now that there would be no surprise for Christmas...since i am certain they are reading this...so i promise that i will have a few things to share soon.
But, today was an exception to that. Because if you live nearby, a trip into NYC during the christmas season is a must. It is so fun to listen to cheerful, happy christmas blaring from store fronts while people are being rude to one another in the street and horns are honking. Very NY!! The people watching is fun. There are the lights and the pretty storefronts....grand central terminal has a laser light show....there was even a scraggly Santa walking amongst the crowds of people there to see the tree at Rockefeller Center.

The kids had haircuts today....very needed! I love the face Mitch made...making this look even more like a mug shot, I know. Avery has wanted shorter hair for a long time now, and i finally conceded, letting her get a more big kid hair do. She is thrilled! I had no idea getting her this kind of haircut would be like when Mitch got his first big boy cut. They age years right before your very eyes and i don't think i am ready for that.
