There is something about the magic of Christmas for a child. Whether its the anticipation, dreaming of what’s in store, the wondering and guessing of what fills those brightly colored packages, or the festive outings and activities; its all enchanting for a child.
The fascination is in full swing for Monkey; the concept is clicking this year because he’s five and he understands the wonderment of the season. Of course he’s getting consumed with lots of “gimmies”, and for that we have to wheel him in. But isn’t that part of human nature?
Another little somebody could care less about any of the holiday wonderment, besides the lights. That big guy in the red suit was just another Stranger and boy, did Bogie let everyone know it. He stood and watched and refused to get any closer for a few minutes. Monkey just dwindled off his foot long list of “wants.”I got Bogie in close enough for a 2010 Photo with Santa but he didn’t want to sit or stand next to him, only next to Brother.
And that’s basically where the Santa Saga ends in the Dunbar home.
The trip was fun and most definitely memorable.
Truly, the reason we are celebrating is for the Savior.
Prince of Peace.
Is Santa incorporated in your Christmas?
