I was so excited to take Ryan to New York for the first time! We went up and visited Enrique's family and had such a wonderful time. This was the first time Ryan had met his NY cousins, too. We went to Sabrina's Nutcracker performance on Saturday. She was great, so graceful and sweet! On Sunday, Mom, Ryan and I braved the cold weather and the crowds to see the tree. It was spectacular. I do think I was more excited than Ryan was to see it, though. He got really sick of me taking pictures!
Here are a few:
This is Ryan and the girls. They have the loveliest courtyard garden in their building. Ryan's favorite part of the trip was playing in the snow there.
Here's the tree. It's so gorgeous in real life. I just couldn't capture how sparkly it was. BUT, I could zoom in on it really well using my brand new 70-300 lens that Enrique gave me! Yes, Christmas came early. He just happened to have an extra one and let me have it. Can I just tell you how excited I am???
Here's another shot of the tree.
Check out the look on Ryan's face. He was not a happy camper at this point.
But then, he cheered up a bit!
He also got to see the beautiful window display at Saks. He loved that.
All in all it was a magical trip. We can't wait to get back for another visit.
And it really got me in the mood for Christmas. So here are a couple of cards...
This is an older one, but one of my all time faves. Everything is Paper Salon. I painted the chipboard with Stickles.
And here's one that I thought would be a great holiday Thank You. I used Inque Boutique stamps and Creative Imaginations paper.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
