With Christmas time comes lots of good things.
A favorite at our house is watching all the holiday movies...
especially Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Last year, little Hudson loved seeing Rudolph,
and he couldn't wait to watch it again!
So a few days ago, we popped it into the dvd player
and sat back to enjoy the show.
All was well until the Abominable Snowman made his grisly appearance.
I have never seen Hudson burst into tears so fast in my life.
That snow monster scared him!
It took a little while,
but I was able to calm him down,
and convince him that the snowman would turn out nice.
He sat in my lap,
watching through teary eyes,
until Hermey the elf pulled that ol' snow monster's teeth.
Hudson breathed a big sigh of relief and asked,
"He's nice now?"
A few days later,
we found a book about Rudolph at the bookstore,
and Hudson has enjoyed reading it.
His favorite part?
The Abominable Snow Monster.
His fear has subsided,
and now he talks about
"Abobable" Snow Monster
all the time.
So, imagine our surprise when we went to the
Tinsel Trail in Big Spring Park,
and Hudson came face to face with
He couldn't believe his eyes.
He asked Will to walk him over to him at least three times.
He is seriously enthralled.
Our time in the Tinsel Trail made for a perfectly Christmas-y night.
We saw so many pretty trees in the park.
There are 200 twinkling trees there,
all sponsored by local groups and businesses.
And Hudson can have the snow man,
my favorite's the Lorax tree.
