For my friend, Elisabeth

My little friend E-beth is a very sad girl.  You see, she has moved away from the city she loves (Chicago) and is not able to see the lights and most importantly, the window's of, uh....Macy's.

So, yesterday, Scott and I braved the crowds of downtown Chicago, to go get some pictures so E-beth can see the windows.

It appears this year, the windows are decorated looking at letters to Santa.  Unfortunatly, I didnt get all the little poems on the windows that described the scene, but I'll make up my own captions:)

It starts with children, far and near
Celebrating in Christmas Cheer
They all write letters to dear Santa Claus
Telling them how good this year, they was....
(good grammer, yes I know..)

Once the letters are written and addressed up north,
Children come to Macy's to send thier letters forth
Here in the window is a scene that we see
right on state street, free advertising, it be....

So from the mailbox, the mail is swept away
To a very special place, to get sorted to stay
Ohhh Santa can't wait to get all the letters
and to see what presents he delivers

Now the letters are placed on a tray
weighed and measured for the special day
who has been naughty, who has been good
Santa will know, it's well understood.

Look, you can read your own caption.... looks like I missed
getting a caption, for a window like this
It looks like a robot, is looking and reading
to ensure the kids have completed thier spelling

Now that the robot has cleared all the letters,      they are sent to the northpole (they excluded Brody Jenner's). 
Here we see Santa, enjoying the reading
He is dreaming of all the gift kis will be receiving
He has his list, checks it twice...
He knows who'se been naughty, he knows who'se been nice.

E-beth, Chicago misses you!  (we also miss the rest of your clan...Christmas won't be the same without you!!!!  Enjoy Colorado, and maybe next year!
