How was everyone's weekend? This weekend I celebrated Christmas early! One of my sisters isn't able to come home for Christmas this year, so we had a fake Christmas with our traditional Christmas Eve lasagna, matching pajamas and even a train ride to the north pole with my nephew. When Santa came aboard I got so excited and when he asked me what I wanted I totally blanked - my nephew nailed it with the vague, yet strategic answer of "presents." I should have just given him a link to my wishlist! This morning we took Jamie's daughter, Vivi, to see Santa at Macy's in Herald Square - she went with the classic "crying hysterically next to Santa" picture. Nailed it!
Here are a few links to get you through all those "day after a holiday party" hangovers...
