The holidays may be over but the fantastic memories still linger. These photos were taken during our excursion to the Village on Venetian Bay a few days before the real deal (see our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day activities). We had a real hoot strolling along the waterfront shops, with a little festive “snow” show, followed by some holiday caroling entertainment, as well as story-time with Mrs. Claus (which little Nuke was far too young for – better luck next year!).
The real icing on the cake, however, came with photos alongside Santa (doesn't it always?). When handed an adorable framed photo of Nuke & Santa, this Manhattan mommy was pleasantly surprised to learn that everything was complimentary!
The weather, of course, was pleasant, if slightly balmy (I definitely consider myself a lucky gal to be able to escape the wintry conditions of the current Northeast). I opted for a long halter dress which was purchased from my trip to Lisbon in the Spring (I got it at one of the concept shops outside of the Museu Coleção Berardo, see here). As it happens, the dress is also reversible so I wore it again on Christmas day! I’m still working on toning my arms (among other things), but I find that halters are generally more forgiving on the arms and shoulder.
I dressed my little pudgy-boy in a simple Polo onesie. Call me overprotective, but I was concerned about the evening chills.
Besides, the navy hue of Nukie's outfit goes quite well against Santa’s scarlet robe, wouldn’t you say?
