Tree Lighting at the Seaport

The South Street Seaport is an area that was hard hit by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Many of the businesses were boarded up for a very long time and some may not reopen. The area which used to house the Old Fulton Fish Market is just now getting back on its feet. We walked down to the Annual Seaport Christmas Tree Lighting (not to be confused with the famous Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting seen nationally on TV) on Friday night. Entertainment was provided by various local talent and Lesley Gore (“It’s My Party” and “You Don’t Own Me”). Henry and I had fun dancing and watching the tree light up. (Mark doesn’t know how to dance.)

Thanksgiving 2013

We had a low-key Thanksgiving with a few friends. Henry’s Thanksgiving this year was much different than last year mainly because he was able to eat a lot of same food we were. He really liked the duck his dad made (we eat duck on Thanksgiving purely because we prefer it to turkey). He also had his first taste of pumpkin pie and liked that a lot too.

Too Young for Beer Pong

Yesterday I took Henry to Rokkan (my office), for the Annual Pre-Thanksgiving meal. This usually entails a lot of good food and drinking games. Henry doesn’t know how to play any of these games yet, but thought he was just one of the gang. My office mates were pretty happy to see him and amazed at how much he has grown.

Escape Artist

Here’s a photo taken last night of Henry exhibiting some of the resourcefulness and determination that would later help him climb out of his crib this morning. We’ll have to make some adjustments to the crib’s configuration to thwart his future escape plans.
