So, I created this brand new blog and then left town! Spent the last week in Brooklyn visiting with Vicki & Steve and our grandson, Charlie having our early Christmas. What fun we had. Charlie is just chatting up a storm now and really enjoyed playing with his new toys. We took him to see Santa at the ABC Carpet store in Union Square (a fabulous vintage, Norman Rockwell Santa) - went to gym class and music class with him. Saw the windows on 5th Ave. and the tree at Rockefeller Center. Here's a photo of Charlie with Santa... he wasn't thrilled this year and shed a few tears, but managed to say "bye bye Santa" thru those tears as he was leaving.
