On Tuesday night we went to see Radio City's Christmas Spectacular and loved it! What talent and precision the Rockettes have; Mom and I have always enjoyed watching them perform during the Macy's Parade every Thanksgiving. We loved that for a mainstream tourist audience their final act was reading aloud the Nativity Story while acting it out on stage, including live animals!

On Thanksgiving Day we headed to my office at Columbus Circle to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Mom and I have always watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the New Year's Rose Parade so it was exciting for the both of us to be able to share this experience together. We were on the 18th floor so didn't have the greatest views of the balloons and performers but we weren't standing in 31` weather and had access to a pantry and bathroom! We also recorded the parade at home so caught up on the Broadway performances that afternoon The three of us and Duke then proceeded to take naps on the couch together before snacking on leftovers and heading to a friend's place for drinks and dessert from 8 pm - 12 am.
On Friday we all slept in then Mom and I headed to the Intrepid Museum. We toured a Cold War submarine and the Intrepid battleship and enjoyed their films and exhibits. When we came home we purchased and decorated our Christmas tree, another tradition Mom and I do the day after Thanksgiving. Most of our friends and family know that Clay and I always try to buy an ornament on our travel, this tree literally can't fit another ornament on it-- oh well, we'll just have to get a larger tree next year! Then Clay made Mom a belated birthday dinner of steak, green beans, and sweet potatoes!
