Christmas Train


The whole park was lit up.  So magical--especially since we left near dusk and there was still a little bit of light out.

No fear this year!

The ride back to the station was quite nice since the sun had long since set.  Here are the boat dock lights reflected in the water and the front of our train.

Pretty lights!

And hey--what's the fun of Santa and kids if there's no abject terror?!

It came at a cost...they both know that Santa is not real! Last year, we saw Santa over and over again, often on the same day, mere minutes apart in disparate locales and A1 started putting it together. I not only confirmed that he was merely in costume (as was Mickey Mouse) and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. I know, I know, it seems unfair, but their lives are full of magic without the lies. Besides, the idea of having to break their hearts later on was too much for me!

I don't think it's unfair. I never bought it when I was a kid because it all looked so fake to me.

I did hear from a friend who knew of a kid who knew that Santa, et al weren't real, but the kid was also told to keep it a secret because other kids may not know the truth! (This was a 5-year-old, and she's fine with it.) :)

Yeah, I think they feel special having been sworn into the secret society.
