New York.

This past weekend we had a whirlwind trip to New York City. We spent Saturday afternoon at Ellis and Liberty Islands. It was great to see the statue up so close, and to learn more about our country's history. They were celebrating Chinese new year and had a few events that the kids participated in. they also had a Chinese drum and dragon dance, that Jackson really liked. we also had an altercation with a seagull, that was pretty funny.
Sunday we went into the city for the New York Comic Con. Wow, talk about a lot of people.It was cool seeing all of the weirdo's dressed in their costumes, and the thousands of others who just love comic books and video games. of course we dressed Jackson in his Yoda costume, and made him a weirdo too. Everyone loved the baby Yoda, he even got his picture on a NBC news site, you can check it out at and check out the slide shows of the comic con.
Jackson did really great considering he was dragged around for 2 days and his whole life was turned upside down. He is such an easy going kid, it is great.
this week we are getting ready for Valentines. I have helped make JT an aligator valentines box for school, and we will be making cookies as well. Kenzie went rollerskating for girl scouts, and had a great time.
I wish you all love and kisses this Valentines day.
