city holidays

Playing with Manny. Caught 'em both looking!

Happy Holidays from New York! Next week we fly to warm Houston to spend a couple weeks. We can't believe this is our last Christmas season in the big city. Every year we've taken our Christmas card photo in a different NY landmark and this year we went all out so watch out for that.

In other news, Helaman is DONE interviewing for oral surgery residencies. The countdown clock on the right reminds us how long it will be until "match day" which is when all the applicants find out which program they will go to. He interviewed at the following schools (in alpha order): U of Alabama (Birmingham), Columbia, Emory (Atlanta), Houston, U of Kentucky (Lexington), U of Louisville, Parkland (Dallas). Wish him luck!

Last week we ventured over to the Garden State Mall (wow!) on the Mexican shuttle bus and it wasn't too bad at all crowd-wise. Much better than a Manhattan street during the holidays. Little Charlotte is a great shopper, beaming at all the people. The funniest part was on the way home she completely conked out in my arms. Nothin' like a good day of shopping!

The photos on your blog are always so much fun!

I can't believe this is (perhaps) your last Christmas in the city! In some ways it probably seemed like a really long three years, but it seemed to pass quickly, too. Whereever you decide to go, I'm sure you'll thrive.
