a festive afternoon

Last weekend, the little gals and I ventured out to one of my favorite gems in Central Park, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre. I just love this quaint building that is filled with so much history (it's been in the park since 1877, people!) and offers such sweet and affordable entertainment for children.

Now through December 30th, you can catch "The Three Bears Holiday Bash" -- the perfect way to kick off the holiday season! Any show that asks for audience participation for "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is okay by me. And with an audience mostly filled with children, there is tons of laughter and silliness to go around. The girls were transfixed nearly the whole time and really enjoyed themselves, and we also liked when the puppeteer came out afterwards and showed how he makes the marionette dance around. Not as easy as it looks!

Tickets ($7 for children and $10 for adults) can be found HERE.

Afterwards, we stopped by Treat House (home of amazing Rice Krispy treats and what is apparently a super cool "tree house" seating area) but alas, that part was closed off. Another day! We then headed to Pinkberry, which was completely empty (note to self: frozen yogurt is a great place to hit in the winter, especially when the kids are along!) -- yummy goodness and fun times ensued:



Hope everyone is having a great holiday season thus far!
