The one where Santa got frostbite

Last night we went to the Botanical Gardens for the Galaxy of Lights, Walking Nights. Yes, it was freezing. But we really wanted to see some of the lights and we HATE driving through it in bumper to bumper traffic (making Andrew affectionally refer to it as "Galaxy of Tail Lights"). So we bundled Perry up in his warmest Christmas jammies and an extra blanket or two and off we went.

 


We didn't walk the whole thing, not even close. But we walked enough to see some really neat lights and get in the Christmas spirit. We also got to visit a little while with Santa, who had made the trip from the North Pole for the occasion. Perry didn't quite know what to think about the man in the big red suit. So for a while P and Santa just looked at each other, sizing each other up. I should probably be grateful that my baby wont get handed off to a strange man and then look at me and smile...he definitely preferred the arms of his mommy and daddy. But the experience still made for some darling pictures.


  

His jammies say "If mommy says no, just ask Santa." Ironically, quite appropriate for the occasion.

I am hoping this is the first of lots of fun holiday experiences between now and Christmas. 'Tis the most wonderful time of the year.
