Christmas Time in NYC

On Christmas Jeanine and I rolled through the night all the way from the hills of West Virginia to the streets of NYC. We got to go with Jeanine's mom and dad (Anne and Steve), and her two brothers Tony and Dustin. Tony's girlfriend Annette and Dustin's fiance Kim were able to come as well. We got to visit Jeanine's grandparents, uncle and cousins (who we hadn't seen since our wedding) on Long Island. It was the first time that Jeanine and I had been in New York at Christmas time. It is something we've wanted to do for awhile, and it is definitely something we hope to do again. It was really so amazing that even the 580 some pictures we took can't even begin to capture the beauty and wonder of it.


I just want to share a few pictures with you. I'll start off with my favorite :)

The trip was awesome! Thanks to all who were there to make is such a great time (especially the hundreds of NYPD officers keeping us safe :)

J and J - How cool is that? I would have gone with you and your family (I feel safer going with experienced travelers). :)
