The Tree, Toys and a Sweet Tot

We've been trying to soak in every moment of living in NYC during the Christmas Season this year. We've been spending as much time with each other as possible, being super-happy and learning to fall in love with our new city.

This week, we thought it would be a good idea to see the window displays on Madison Avenue at Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany and Saks 5th Ave. Well, that didn't really work out too well. The crowds on the sidewalks resembled that of a mass of cattle being herded to another pasture.
We managed to sift through the crowds and make our way to Rockefeller Center to see the greatly misplaced, but stunning tree.
It took nearly 35 minutes to walk roughly 80 yards because the crowd was so thick, but the close-up view was well worth the wait.
My Hero took an amazing shot of Rockefeller Center as we got closer.
We then made our way to Madison Avenue to check out F.A.O Schwartz. My office building is literally across the street from this magical land, yet I had never been in the store until this past week. I was blown away by the eye-candy that knocked me over with every turn. The floor-to-ceiling displays were stunning.

This candy covered soldier stood nearly 15 feet high!
The life-size snowflakes dangled from the ceiling was covered with blue lights.
The plush display of Noah's Ark would make any child want to
cuddle-up and learn their Bible stories.
My Hero even displayed his "love"...
...and "hate" for the New York baseball teams on these cute stuffed bears.
I managed to find the complete section of Princess Belle dolls and dresses. Too precious.
I didn't lay a finger on the $25,000 Barbie Foosball Table. Apparently, there were only 10 made in the world which caused the price to be out of reach for the everyday man...or woman...ummmm...right.
We finally made our way to The Big Piano & I caught this sweet picture of a dad with his daughter tapping out of tune.

After the grand finally displayed above and the skyrocketing temperatures inside the store, we managed to escape with just ourselves into the "fresh" New York City air and made our way home.
