Life: All in the Family

The core-unit Macnamara family’s gathered here in NYC for the Christmas weekend. Yes, my sister has a van, too. She’s named it Basel Ribbit, and Basel’s for-real because he has a Facebook page. Shawna and Basel picked us all up today in Manhattan, and we cruised around to get supplies for tomorrow’s festivities: the Jets vs. Giants game. We plan to get up early, put coffee in a big Thermous, and tailgate like I haven’t tailgated since my days at Notre Dame. I’ve been informed that I must wear green because I’m Jets fan.

Driving through New York City at this time of the year is pretty exciting. In addition to the ever-present yellow cabs and throngs of people on the sidewalks, the buildings are all lit up with dazzling holiday décor.

Mom and I cozied up in the backseat and enjoyed the ride from Manhattan to Brooklyn, where we went to The Meat Hook (inside of The Brooklyn Kitchen) and got special sausages for tomorrow’s tailgater.

Dad sat in the front seat to navigate…and then helped us get installed for the eve at my sister’s apartment. Four of us in a studio with an office = holiday love!
