Happy Thanksgiving

Hi, everyone.
Just stopping by to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. :)
We are in New Jersey to celebrate the holiday with Scott's family.
Today we went into New York City and took the girls to see the Radio City Hall Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes.  They were totally enthralled!  We had seats about five rows behind the orchestra, so we could see it all.
(My inlaws are incredibly generous, and really spoiled us all today.)
The girls really liked the Santa Claus part of the show, and Merry said she knew he was the "real" Santa.  She also said that she thought he might have left his sleigh and reindeer on the roof.
(Scott's losing the war on whether or not our kids believe in Santa...they seem to really enjoy talking about him.)
They also loved the Nativity.  There were real camels, a donkey and a herd of sheep.  Kelsey LOVED the sheep.
After the show we walked around the City for awhile.  We took the girls into The American Girl Place.  That store is incredible!  Merry is getting an American Girl doll for Christmas, and she is completely captivated by the catalogues.  When she saw the store she flipped!
After that we started trying to make our way home to NJ.  It took us almost half an hour to hail a cab and then the cabbie only took us within a block and a half of Penn Station.  We had to hoof it the rest of the way, carrying two sleeping little girls.  Oh man, it was rough.  In the meantime, I developed a major migraine and was ready to collapse.
We finally made it to Penn Station, missed our first train, and managed to catch the next one half an hour later.  It was jam-packed,  but we got seats all together, so that was good.  We were ONE stop away from home, and the train just stopped.  We sat there for close to an hour.  What should have been an hour and a half trip turned into over three hours!
I am exhausted, and still battling a migraine, but it was worth it to see those little faces light up today!
I hope you all have a really marvelous day tomorrow.
God bless!
