Ghetto Thanksgiving

A few shots from today...and a funny story!






We were bored this afternoon. Seriously...who doesn't eat turkey until after 6pm? We aren't the Vanderbilt's for goodness sake!

So, we had an impromptu photo shoot. The above photos were the result.

Babygirl and I were discussing our upcoming trip to NYC to see the Rockettes, visit the American girl store for tea, carriage ride in central park, lunch at the top of Bergdorf's, etc. Babyboy was a bit put out that he was not invited. I said it was a girls' trip and he responded "well then why does Uncle Aaron get to go?"

Babygirl responded "because Uncle Aaron is ghetto?" like it was the most obvious thing in the world. Then I had to interject and say "ummm, you mean Uncle Aaron is GAY?" Yeah, she says, Uncle Aaron is gay with his friend Eric. "No", I respond, "Uncle Aaron is ghetto with his friend Eric. He's GAY with his friend Tobin"...

At which time I realize that my kids will either be the most culturally accepting and advanced kids on the block...or they'll be the most messed up confused kids around! Either way...I'm up for it!

What are you thankful for today?

Out of the mouths of babes. Ha! They are just too cute for words. I have been dying to take my niece to the American Girl store. Not far for me since I am in CT. but she is in PA. and never seems to have the time. Have a great time!

Hi Sippycups! Those pics are fabulous. Your little girl looks like a child I saw in an ad, but I can't remember where??!!?? Senior moment I guess.

I just got back from an NYC trip - we ate at Bergdorf's, did the Rockettes show, but no American Girl. My baby {26} is past that. ;-( Jimmy Fallon show instead ;-) but I saw many a mommy and daughter carrying the American Girl shopping bags. We had a wonderful trip! Have fun!

I see you teaching a cultural/lifestyle sensitivity course in the very near future, my dear.
Hope you're well!! xoxo

I'm not sure you have gone yet... but a couple of blocks away from the American Girl Store is Saks... Saks boasts some of the most magnificent windows in all of NYC and has a magical appeal to children and adults of all ages. (It is directly across from Rock. Center.) Anyhow, Saks also has the MOST magnificent light show. It is an absolute MUST see!!
