The Train Show

Mom and I went to the Train Show at the Botanical Gardens and it was really cool! I didn't know what it was about at first, but when I saw those trains chugging along I became really involved in the excitement of it all. I also got to see famous New York architecture in my size. How cool is that? Look at me, I'm almost taller than the Statue of Liberty!

Can you see the trolley car in this picture? It took me a minute at first, but once I figured out it was above me, I couldn't get enough of it.

Rocking With My Pals at Rockerfeller

Since I am a New York City girl, my parents felt it was necessary that I see the tree at Rockerfeller Center. Little did I know that Spongebob, the Grinch, and Elmo would be there too. OH,WOW! I was lucky enough to get my picture taken with them, but I was so enthralled that I forgot to look at the camera. It really is me in the picture, I SWEAR!

Trimming the Tree

Boy, Mom and Dad are sure lucky that I came along, because I had to do all the work putting up the tree while they sipped champagne...I guess that is a family tradition from my dad's side of the family. Here is me picking out the tree. There were a lot to choose from, but I knew that we needed a tall skinny tree.
I think that putting the tree in the stand was the most fun. I really enjoyed twisting the screws into the tree. Mom and dad didn't think I was strong enough, but I showed them a thing or two.
And lastly I untangled all of the lights so that mom could put them on the tree while I napped. It took awhile, but I got the job done. The tree looked beautiful with all of the ornaments on it. I can't stop saying "Oh, Wow" every time I see it.
Update: I have become very fond of taking the ornaments off the tree, sucking on them, and then hurling them across the room. What fun!

Mom and I went to Lenny's the other day because we had run out of coffee, and I saw the muffins. Wow, they looked so good I had to point at them and tell mom "MMMMmmmmMMmmm" so that she understood how I felt. (Even though I have never had a muffin in my life, I'm more of a croissant girl). Mom bought me a muffin and here I am, a very satisfied girl indeed.
