second Advent

Two more weekends before Christmas.

My granddaughter brought home an advent wreath a couple of weeks ago from church.  She made it in Sunday school, 4 little candles in white and one bigger red one in the middle for Christmas Day.

On Saturday I went to NYC again with my son-in-law, his mom and my grandson. 
It was snowing/raining both at the same time.  We had to pick something up in Harlem, and then wanted to go to see the Christmas tree and visit F O A Schwarz, the toy store.  Going down 2nd Ave. we ended up going to Queens on the 59th St. Bridge - the road just dropped you on the bridge, no warning, no way to turn around.  So we had to turn around in Queens and go back over.
Here is a picture of the bridge:

Doesn't that look cool?

and here a freezing little guy.  Although he never complained, and he was dressed warmly.

Harlem street in the rain/slush.

5th Ave.  No time to stop and concentrate on taking a photo.

And a little boy checking out a truck in the toy store.

The exit/entrance to FAO Schwarz --- and it was cold!
