We visited the Museum of Natural History the day before Thanksgiving.
Went to a favorite spot, the Astor Turret.
Note the special occasion chairs set up.
That was for the next day's VIPs who had access to the museum for coffee and bonbons.
The kids were mesmerized by the window washers.
Next day was the Parade.
Thank you to my brother in law for the prime spot.
Though I must say , and my bro in law agrees with me, that I was instrumental in making this year's spot happen as well.
Just leave it to us clowns to find the opening, the opportunity to make the morning a success for our family.
We hung out with the cousins
And with Nana and Zady
We lit Hanukkah candles
We had Grammy's famous apple pie which is more like a pan pie these days. Nana said she didn't roll out the dough thin like Grammy. But she did a beautiful lattice! That takes a lot of work!
And then some Thanksgiving meal
Coming soon is the 2nd part of the weekend which included my birthday (no photos: I was cooking and cleaning and entertaining friends however Stango redeemed himself by getting me 6 Crumbs cupcakes a few days after my birthday. Yummy. Dairy. Alas no photos), a nice visit with Aunt Reba and Cousin Girl and then my family Chanukkah party at our house with a lot of my cousins and one of my aunts. It was so much fun as always. Pics coming...
