It was a cold-for-Utah night, but we braved it for a free cookie and some lights at the zoo. True, most of the animals were asleep, but Santa was there with some reindeer, the carousel was running, and we had hot chocolate.
I'm finding that there are plenty of convincing Santa's around, but Macy's in New York has ruined me for backdrops. Taped up posters, don't shine a candle to the giant wood carvings. But, I don't think the boys noticed that, they were happy to talk to Santa. Reuben told him about how he wanted to grow up to be a scientist. Simeon talked for a bit, and Reuben interpreted.
