Christmas by the pictures

As promised... all the pictures fit to print :)


This is what we stared at for an hour and a half as we taxied at the airport. ::Sigh::


Alice's Tea Cup - where even the Mad Hatter can hang up his hat.


Picture of the four of us - me, Benni, Mike, and Kat (Benni's awesome sister)


FAO Schwarz in NYC - build your very own legless Muppet!


The entirely way too horrifying tutu aisle at FAO Schwarz. Was not ready for this.


Lifesize Batman made out of Legos = nerdgasm.


The famous FAO Schwarz keyboard you can play with your feet.


Star light, star bright...


Horse drawn carriage, anyone?


Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree...


Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in all its glory...


Empire State Building under the lights of Macy's


South Jersey: two things you couldn't get away from - cats and snow.


Shiny!

So them's my pictures. Hope you all had wonderful holidays and have some exciting plans for New Year's Eve!

Yes, wot Jenn said.
The tutu aisle is scary (I will be sending friends here to gawp).
The airport photo is beautiful and so is the Cat Regarding Snow.
Thanks for the pleasure and wishing you a wonderful new year for 2010.

Great photos, my darling! Sadly I didn't take any of my Canadian Christmas, but I *am* taking pictures of Long Island. Not that that helps any. Okay, I'm lame.

3 things:

1) I love the tutu aisle. I would run through it with my hands outstretched on either side me touching all of them as I ran by! I'm a very tactile nerd.

2) Lego Batman = Awesome.

3) It's a tie between the kitty silhouette looking out at the snow, and the last pics with all the Christmas lights that look periwinkle-ish (I can't resist periwinkle).
