Christmas in New York -- Mommy & Daddy Weekend!!!

I started this post like 3 days ago and just got around to finishing it!

Two weekends ago -- before the 'Great Illness of 2009' -- Justin & I went to NYC for our annual Christmas weekend. For the past few years, we've been going up in December to meet up with friends for a show, dinner, drinks and fun. This year we drove up instead of taking the train, and we stayed with my sister-in-law, Christa in her beautiful apartment in Battery Park.

We took a chilly, but fun tour of her neighborhood, the financial district and the South Street Seaport.

At the Seaport -- Brooklyn Bridge in the background

Later in the day we went to see Cirque du Soleil's Wintuck before heading to dinner.

The Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center Finally!! Dinner and drinks at Tao with awesome friends.

Justin & Christa - so cute!

Luke & Nolan spent the weekend at Mom Mom & Poppy's house where they were spoiled rotten with hugs and kisses. Poppy surely did his funny Daffy Duck voice for the boys, which they love!
When we returned home on Sunday, Nolan was a little stuffy. Little did we know that he would be passing along a horrible cold to everyone! I'm thinking he got the cold from the pedi's office because I had him there earlier in the week. Who knows?
It was a fun weekend though and I'm so happy we were able to go this year!
