Flying sleds are indeed scary.

On Sunday night, we took the kids to Starry Nights at Shelby Farms Park. Starry Nights is one of the largest holiday light exhibits in the United States. We drank Starbucks from red cups, ate cookies and pointed out the various light displays. The kids had a blast. The Hero and I had fun too. There's nothing quite like experiencing Christmas through the eyes of a child. Santa was also there, so we paid him a quick visit.


As you can see, Little Bit looks less than thrilled. It took a while, but I was finally able to get her to tell me why she was scared of Santa. She said, "I didn't want to fly away into space with him." I kid you not. She thought the sled was going to take off. The poor thing... Ha!

That is awesome! She still looks cute. And Little Man is always so photogenic. How do you do that with a boy? Bribery? My boys are insane.

That's a good-looking Santa. Most around here look like heroin addicts.
