Christmas in 'The City'

Hello, Dear Ones!
If you were wondering why I haven't been responding to your comments this past week ~
we've been to 'The City'! Those around the New York area call New York city 'The City'! 
Don't you love that? 
It was a wonderful kickoff, well, we're almost there, to Christmas!
 A nice man offered to snap a photo of Mr. Precious and I. I don't think he's a blogger as his focus was on those great big red Christmas balls and not our most gorgeous faces. We look like we've been superimposed here! ;)
 I had always heard of the wonderful decorated windows at Macy's. Even seen TV specials on the wonderful windows. So...since we were staying in the area we just had to go and see them. These snaps do nothing to show you how wonderful each window was. Animation, digitalness in the backgrounds, music and the magical feeling of being a child again ~ oohs and aahs!
 The Macy's theme this year was Believe! I do, I do, I do believe!
 This was a lovely garland inside and I loved it and wanted to show it to you.
 Gorgeousness!
 Twinkliness.
 That's Mr. Precious headed to Rockefeller Center. 
The giant Christmas tree and yes! that's snow! We felt like kids in the snow!
 Some prettiness.
 Hark the Herald Angels Sing!
 Then a little ride through Central Park.
Did I mention it was colder than cold? Yes ma'am! My tiny feet were freezing!
Behind my most gorgeous head is the skating rink in Central Park.
 Then we came back to Times Square to do a little Christmas shopping and what to my wandering eyes should appear...
 :)
 I'll bet he's cold!!!
Just in case you're wondering who this is...The Naked Cowboy!
Yee Haw!!

Now, if we were in 'The City' you know where we were going from there.
I'll be back, same time, same Bat channel. 
I know I'm old but some of you will know what I'm talking about! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Christmas Is Paintin' The Town
 
Can't you see it, can't you hear it
It's everywhere, it's Christmas

Sidewalk Santa, children with dreams
Asking him, please...
It's Christmas

It's Christmas, it's paintin' the town
With red and silver bells and laughter all around
With scurring people and greetings as you near
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Hearts grow lighter, smiles get wider
It's in the air, it's Christmas

Choir's singin', church bells ringin'
Loved ones are here, it's Christmas

It's Christmas, it's paintin' the town
With red and silver bells and laughter all around
With the magical morning and children as they cheer
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

It's Christmas, it's paintin' the town
With red and silver bells and laughter all around
With the magical morning and children as they cheer
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
