Snow Minions: Merry Christmas

Carolyn Tann-Starr 2009

Merry Christmas

http://www.aish.com  is a beautiful and very useful Jewish website that I enjoy. I have to teach my children how to pray in Hebrew and English so I need all the help that I can get because they are visual learners. Daddy is Jewish so we do a lot of very interesting things. Running a Judeo-Christian household means I am always being exposed to documents written in multiple languages. Ergo, I have intellectual and cultural issues (LOL). Luckily for me I have wonderful friends who help educate me while I am running amuck in my language studies and/or getting stuff translated. A few, like Susana, even help out with my Hebrew and Russian lessons (LOL). It's a lot of fun. I enjoy the research. Life is good... :-)

I am blogging live from Manhattan (New York, NY) because I want to teach Stephen about Christmas and the Messiah. We are going on a buggy ride to eyeball a cathedral and a host of other landmarks. I want him to observe some very interesting sites and I want him to experience the wonder of playing in the snow while visiting a few cultural icons. God is in the details of our intelligent design so I am using life as something the wee ones can relate the concept of God to.

We are going to be collecting a whole bunch of NYC eye candy today. My kids love going on audio/video outings and weather is never an issue. I'm letting Stephen pick the directions we should travel. I have all day to entertain the little minions (LOL). My fave moments so far? Watching him run up and down the Museum of Natural History entrance steps counting them out of order and drooling over Donald Trump's building. My shorty has very good taste. He knows the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Park and was shocked and excited to see another version of a giant globe in Manhattan (LOL). Letting him pick out horses to buggy ride with is kinda fun too. We are probably going to take the train back down to 59th Street to get our car. We have to pick up Noah and let him make the next set of travel arrangements. The kids are my Christmas TomTom today (LMAO). :-)

While we fool around on Central Park West planning an intimate ski playdate for upstate this weekend I would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

Hi Carolyn... One of my favorite childhood memories from growing up in New Jersey was the day my grandparents took me into NYC to the Museum of Natural History and for luch at the Automat.  I hope that your visit with Stephen will be as memorable for him!

Thank you, Claude. I have some really cool road trip memories with my Granny and my parents. Those were the best of times for me growing up as a kid. :-)

Dr. Stacey, my sweetie guy pie is a trip. I'm going to bring him down to MD so you can meet him. I promised him a road trip. Now he runs around the house going beep-beep all the time. Dude is practicing  (LOL).

Thank you, Bob and Carolin. Wishing you all the best for the holiday season and mad fun for the coming year. :-)

Hey Susie! May God bless you and your family and may 2010 be the best year ever. Hoping to spend more time with you when I get back down there. :-)

Hello lovely! Shalom and Merry Christmas to you too, Karen. It is a lot of fun watching the kids react to life in general. They find everything so fresh and interesting. They make me see things in a new light all of the time. I hope it stops raining today. I want to take them outside later. Right now, I have the New York Sports Club on my brain. I want to go sit in the sauna and relax before I get back to obsessing over my computer again  (LOL). :-)

C - anytime.  I have a little guy who would enjoy destroying the place with him.

Posted by Dr. Stacey-Ann Baugh, A doctor who makes house calls. (Century 21 New Millennium) almost 11 years ago

Awesome. We will be making a playdate. Looking forward to it Stacey-Ann. :-)
