Scenes from New York - a Fabulous Fall

Just got back from a fabulous trip to NYC!
Spent a week with the grandkids and had
awesome weather.
 
Day one with hubby strolling thru Central Park.
Had to stop in the Apple store to check out
the new I-Phones first...   Place is always mobbed!


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our last stop, after passing by the Dakota was
at Strawberry Fields.  At the upper section, there was
a group of musicians playing Lennon songs.
We were totally unaware that we happened to
be there on John Lennon's birthday!
 
Spent lots of times in the local parks.
On this day, we played baseball with Charlie
and even Sam tried to hit.
 
 
 
 
Spent a gorgeous Sunday at Coney Island
with the kids......
 
Starting out on the F train
 
 
 
The Cyclone
(nope didn't go on that)
 
 
The Wonder Wheel
(yep - even the little guys)
 
 
Lunch at Nathan's
 
 
 
Playing at the playground on the beach
 
 
 
 
 
Movin' on down to the water.
Started out with a just to dip the toes.
Naturally, that didn't last long and
both boys got soaked.
 
 
 
 
 
Off to Luna Park for kiddie rides.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Topped off the day with ice cream.
 
 
Another day, another park.
In the city for Charlie's swimming lessons.
 

 

 




 
All in all - a fun filled week.
 
Hope you enjoyed the scenes.

Starting my Christmas Cards...........

Well, it's a start anyway LOL...
Here's my first Christmas card....
very early for me..
 
It's a really cute stamp by Stampendous that
I purchased last year but failed to use :(
 
Colored with Copics and embellished
with microfine glitter.
I've fussy cut the two heads and
popped them up with dimensionals.
 
Hope you like it.
 
 
It's pretty CAS, but easy to mail.
Below is a close-up

 
More to follow................

Sam's Album is DONE :)

Well - the day has arrived....
I finished Sam's album yesterday.
It turned out to be 84 pages.....  quite the "little" project LOL
Here are the final pages....
 
 
As you can see by these two pages - Sam's a
very happy little boy

 
 
The letter S is a thin wooden piece that
I embossed several times and then
embedded a stamp into for texture.

 
All in a day's work.
 
 
Watching TV with Charlie and
learning about all the good shows.

 
Play time.
 


 

 
Formal family photos


 
Ta Da!!!  He's officially ONE.


 
Grandpa & Nanny finish up the album with our thoughts.
 
Now we're off to NY on Tues. for Sam's 2nd birthday...
 
Hope you've enjoyed the journey of his first year :)
