Texas Pics

Happy Birthday to Amke! We hope you had a wonderful day yesterday with family and friends. Wish we could have been there.


Writing from Texas

Hope everyone had a very lovely Christmas! We are having a fun and relaxing time here in Austin. Our flight down on the 24th was easy enough, no delays. Taking lots of pictures we'll post when we are back in NYC.


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Just a few days until vacation. We've been busy getting all of the Christmas gifts together. I've tried to do most of my shopping after work to avoid the weekend crowds. Walking down Fifth Avenue in the 50s is like a combination of dodge ball and bumper cars. It's been difficult to resist buying a few gifts for ourselves as well. Erik's been talking about getting some kind of game system for a while, so on Sunday we went to the Sony store and Erik bought a Playstation hand held. He's having fun figuring out his new games.
Last week I was coming back from picking up some cupcakes with Charlotte at work when we saw 2 vintage school desks on the street! We dragged them back upstairs where they are now making a comfortable home.


The big 27

Today's my birthday. Woke up to a pancake mimosa breakfast surprise from Erik. Relaxed at home. Got nice calls from family and friends. When we went into the city we were both surprised to take a ride on the vintage subway car from the 1930s. It was amazing to see everyone smiling and taking pictures, talking to each other, checking out the old ads and map.

Wii and Cupcakes

Had a great time Friday at Henry's. Was surprised with some birthday cupcakes. Yum!


It's December and it's snowing!

Well, it snowed this morning. First snow of the season and I hope not the last. We brought our Xmas tree Chris inside just in time. Decorated him last night. Posting some pics of a manic walk/don't walk sign I saw and an update on the construction next door.
