New York City @ Christmastime...

There really is nothing like it. Add to it that about 40 friends came along for the trip...and you have the mixing for a perfect Christmas getaway...
So I'll let a few pictures do the talking. For starters...the Naked Cowboy (and my sweet cousin, Dawn...) Giddy up!
Dylan's Candy Bar. Worth the trip...

30 Rock and St. Patrick's Cathedral...

Our daughter and her bff in Times Square...

The Plaza (where I hummed the theme to the Way We Were--from the last scene that was filmed right there. I know--geek!)

That tree is simply stunning...

A few friends, my sister, the hubs, two of our kiddos and me in Times Square. We met up with two of my high school friends who live in Manhattan and hung out for a bit. So nice to have personal tour guides--it made riding the subway a breeze!

Ice Skating at the rink...

Daytime view from Top of the Rock. We also went up at night (best view I've ever seen.)

I took 800 pictures. I'm nowhere near finished editing them. But I'm enjoying the process, and reliving it through them...

The streets in early morning were a lot less crowded than they were later that day and into the night...
We got to see Lester Holt and Amy Robach do the Today Show, which my kids loved. My husband also saw the Cash Cab host, Ben Bailey all dressed up in a suit. I was too busy snapping pictures to notice...figures!
And The Tree...
Thanks for letting me share a few of my favorite photos. You can view more of them here on Tina's blog.
Enjoy your day!
