Merry Christmas!

I would like to wish all my friends, new and old, a Very Merry Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful day spent with family, friends and lots of joy!

Unfortunately, last week, my Step-Dad fell and broke his leg (well, actual mangled his leg is more like it!) and is still in the hospital. He will be transported today, Christmas Eve, to a Rehabilitation Center. I am so sad that he won't be home for Christmas! So we will be there and all over tomorrow visiting family! We will be in the car more than visiting! But that's ok. As long as you spend some time with everyone that is what counts!
On Monday, we went to NYC to see the "Christmas Spectacular" show at Radio City. It is amazing! If you never saw it, you should try to make it! This was my 2nd time seeing it, but a first for my hubby and son. My son had a blast! Here are a couple of pics from the show. You can't use a flash, so they are not the greatest.

This first one is Santa in his sleigh being pulled by his "reindeers" (the Rockettes)

This next one is my favorite scene. The Nativity where they walk live animals onto the stage.

It was extrememly cold that day and the wind was a blowin'! Here is my son all bundled up, oh yeah, and my hubby's iPhone! LOL He is always on that thing!! (Actual, to be fair, he was actually calling my sister-in-law to tell her we were there! She works for a large law firm in NYC.)

And finally, the Tree and Ice Rink at Rockerfeller Center!


There is nothing like NYC at Christmas time! It is so pretty! Everything is decorated amazingly and you can actually smell the chestnuts roasting in the air from the street vendors!

Here we are right before we went into Radio City. Me and my hubby, my son, my brother-in-law, niece and nephew. My sister-in-law took the photo. We were freezing can you tell?!



And lastly, a big thank you to Andria, for giving me this lovely Blog Award! You are too sweet! Thank you! Make sure you check out her lovely blog Iona-Rose Designs!

I will be back over the weekend with a Giveaway! Until then, have a Merry Christmas filled with wonderful memories, good fun, family and friends and most of all the love of Christ, whom this day is for!

God Bless you and yours,
Melissa

Melissa, Merry Christmas to you and your family. I am sending love and healing light to your dad for speedy recovery. My son just fractured his ankle two weeks ago, but he is just wearing a boot and walking on crutches, thankfully, so he was able to visit me. And what a fabulous time you must have had seeing the Rockettes. I was able to see that Christmas show once, when I lived in NJ. Have a fabulous holiday season! Hugs, Eva

Melissa, You are making us want to do a second visit to NYC, only at Christmas time. My girls mentioned how we haven't visited Philly in a while so maybe next year we will do the Philly/NY trip! Stay warm. Looks like such fun was had by all! Hugs, Cheri
