WINTER'S EVE

To officially kick off the winter season it only seems appropriate to start with a Winter's Eve Festival. Leave it to the Upper West Side to create something fabulous enough to convince my ever obedient husband to play hooky for one night. It was too good to pass up and we didn't even go to half of the events that were going on that night before Henry was ready to crash. 

Beautiful Christmas stars are my absolute favorite at the Shops at Columbus Circle.

Henry's highlight of the night was meeting Abby Cadabby. He really loves her and her flying fairy school.

They had a kid's band playing but by then Henry was pretty much done and too tired to dance around with the other kids.
