my NYC Christmas

             
Dan and I picking out our tree at the 70th St “farm”
             
Emily and Bethany came over to help Dan and I decorate. Bethany is making it a Christmas tradition as she helped us last year as well.

              

              

               


then a few days later it was time to bake some Christmas cookies and watch Christmas movies with Lisa, Erica, and Emily
              
after a while we realized that we had been too ambitious in our baking and were now stuck decorating dozens of cookies…oops! lets just say that the quality of the decorating went down as the evening when on

Dan was an excellent cheerleader and taste tester….smart man 🙂

lisa put her head down on the pillow at the end of the night with her icing knife in hand and actually fell asleep

not exactly Christmas related,
but Dan and I woke up at 2:30am on 12/21 to go out and see the lunar eclipse
it was the first time in 372 years ago, during Galileo’s time, that there has been a lunar eclipse on the same date as the winter solstice…it was pretty cool!
