We had such a fun first Christmas and Hanukkah with E. She's an expert present-opener! Here's how we spent it, in photos...
We took E to see Santa at the Macy's on 34th Street. The decorations were amazing, and a great distraction while we waited in the (fortunately, very short) line. E wasn't too happy about sitting on Santa's lap alone, but was friendly to the big guy while I held her.
We spent a week and a half upstate with my parents, and had so much fun with our family!

My dad likes to go all out (an understatement) with the Christmas lights, and over the years has gotten his neighbors to go crazy, too. This year the local news even came and interviewed them! My sister and I counted up the cars one night, and estimated that about 150 cars a night came to see the street! I told my dad it looks like Christmas lights threw up on his lawn...

The weather in upstate New York was surprisingly mild, and we were able to play outside with some new presents on Christmas day!
