Well I survived my first Thanksgiving in NY. I decided to go to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I couldn't bear the thought of missing the most famous parade in the world when it was going on less than thirty minutes away. So I bundled up at five thirty in the morning to meet someone who was going to the parade. But I never saw her so I waited untill someone else I knew was going and met her outside her apartment. She was curious as to why I was standing outside her door at six o'clock in the morning. I told her that I was waitring for someone to go to the parade with, so I went with her and her friend. We had a great time. We were in a good group of people. There was one Grandma with her two grandsons from South Carolina who was apparently quite wealthy. She said she thought The Rainbow room would be a good place to have Thanksgiving, and they went to Tavern on The Green the night before. These are two of the most expensive restaurants in NYC. Her grandkids were standing at the front of the crowd she was at the back and we were somewhere in the middle. We were passing messages up to her Grandsons like put your scarf over you ears. When the Charlie Brown Balloon went by a lady behind me had no idea what the football was for. People are funny. But I did see the Beach Boys, Leanne Rhymes, Jeff Corwin, and a whole bunch of other people that where supposed to be famous but I had no idea who they where. But it was fun. We are gearing up for the Christmas Season. We have the Christmas coloring contest this week, Christmas Stockings next week and Christmas presents the week after that. I am excited to get into the Christmas spirit.
