Check Out the “Scared-of-Santa” Photo Gallery!

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

We parents always hope for that picture-perfect shot of our little ones with Santa — but it doesn’t always work out that way… And you know, those funny photos often make the best memories.

The editors over at Lowcountry Parent magazine came up with a terrific idea: a photo gallery where parents can upload their favorite “scared-of-Santa” pics. This one is my favorite from the gallery so far. I’ll be stopping by often this holiday season to check out the latest photos.

Do you have a funny photo of your child on Santa’s lap? Submit it!

Disneyland Halloween Fireworks — and Much More!

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

Have you seen the amazing Halloween fireworks at Disneyland? Our family got to see then when we were invited there for a parenting-bloggers tour, and I have to say, we were blown away by the display, the music, and the special added touches that made our orange-and-black-striped socks go up and down. Check out the video.

And stay tuned, because I’m going to be sharing a special announcement from Mrs. Claus and Disneyland (now there’s a good combo!) in the next week. Here’s a little tease from Mrs. Claus from when we visited recently…

But wait! That’s not all the fun we had. The wonderful young man who plays Ragtime on Main Street, Alan Thompson Jr., invited Matt to play “Maple Leaf Rag” on the way-cool Ragtime piano, right there on Main Street! Lucky for me, I had my Flip camera ready to roll.

And what trip to Disneyland is complete without a ride on the trolly? What a great way to see Main Street all decked out for Halloween.

Here’s a video that Disneyland put together to show just some of the fun we parenting bloggers had that day. It sure got us in the Halloween spirit!
