I don't have any pictures since they were all taken on Derrick and Margret's camera and they were never posted to Facebook....
On the day after Christmas Elli and I were up and at the airport before the sun rose to fly up to New York. Dad and Linda picked us up at about 11am and we headed off for lunch.
Then that evening we met Linda's sons, Matt and Kevin and Matt's fiancee, Stephanie.
|L to R: Kevin, Me, Linda, Dad, Matt, Elli|
|The new addition is Stephanie, my future sister-in-law.|

|Coldest day of the year at the Statue of Liberty|
|Warming up inside the Empire State Building|
|Great picture of Dad and Linda|
|Oh, we also visited Koreatown for lunch.|
|Elli, right before she discovered the joys of shoveling snow.|
|This ride did not end well.|
|It was cold.|
New Year's Day was the day of the big event. My dad and Linda got married.
It was a very quiet ceremony in the living room. Her best friend conducted the ceremony and the only guests were us children, Linda's mother, and one of Linda's brothers and his wife.
|The cake Elli and I made.|
|Aren't they adorable?|
|I was the only one that knew how to put it on...|
|Cutting the cake.|
|Only missing MY.|
Aren't my new stepbrothers really tall? Dad is six foot, if that gives you an idea of their height...
The visit up there was very nice and I'm sad we didn't get to stay more than ten days. But Dad ended up getting a job while we were there and started it soon after we left, so it was ultimately a perfectly timed visit.
Maybe next time I come back to the states I'll just bypass Florida and go up to New York.
Though Apple Jack and Kay-Kay wouldn't like that at all....
