Last week of school celebration

Tuesday when I picked the girls up from school we headed to McDonalds for a snack to celebrate the last week of school for the calendar year 🙂 It was Flannel Day during Christmas Spirit Week at the middle school, if you couldn’t guess 🙂

Mallory’s Christmas Concert

I got home from New York last Saturday afternoon, and Sunday afternoon we headed to the auditorium for the high school chorus concert. Mallory is not in the Choraliers, but in the women’s ensemble through the chorus class she is taking this year. They sounded great. She is third from the left on the front […]

New York Poinsettias

The decorations every single place we went in New York were just over the top, but the poinsettias in our hotel lobby may have been the prettiest I’ve ever seen.  I’m so glad I remembered to get a picture of them while we were waiting on our Uber Saturday morning to head to the airport.

Friday in New York

Our group picture at Grand Central Station. Charlotte’s feet were hurting so bad that she decided to spend the day resting in the hotel room, which really was probably a good thing. Even though we didn’t walk as far as we had all of the other days, I’m sure her blister would’ve just gotten worse. […]

Sights of Uptown

Museums on Thursday

Thursday after we’d spent so much time with the Statue of Liberty we were about frostbitten, we headed into the museum to thaw out. The museum had just opened in May, so even those of us who had been to New York before had never see it. Such interesting information about her. This is one […]

Visiting the Statue of Liberty

Thursday was the coldest day when we were in New York, but also the sunniest, so we decided to go ahead & head to visit the Statue of Liberty. I got this picture of Evelyn and Pam on the ferry on the way over. As Charlotte & I were boarding some huge waves hit the […]

Wednesday Pix

Wednesday afternoon we toured the 9/11 Memorial through the Tribute Museum.  The actual Memorial was so beautiful.  All those names – all that sadness.  We learned on the tour that the names are not carved into the marble, and not raised.  They are actually cut all the way through.  Honestly, there was a beautiful reason […]
