Christmas has come to the city!

Close up of tree on Union Square
Too early in the day to see it all lit up
Macy's looks quite festive
If you click on this photo, you can see the huge tree in the entrance of Neiman Marcus. I can't believe this store will be coming to our town soon.
Every year the Sir Francis Drake Hotel has a hand built gingerbread house, this year its a castle.
A shot of the inside of the hotel
You have to have a picture of cable car right?!

Hi guys, thought I'd pop in and post some shots I took of the city.I went in not too long ago for a dental appointment, and everything looked so festive.
We just got our tree today,but of course I won't get around to decorating it until tomorrow. I think the tree looks so pretty as is, and I wonder why we have to put all the stuff on it.
Hope everyone out there is having fun getting ready for the holidays. Decorating the house is the most fun for me. So, I'm off now to dig all the boxes out of the garage.
Happy decorating to all!
