^ Well, y'all did a great job!


In other news....

While I was snapping photos, Smisty videoed the Christmas Parade!

Unfortunately, I did not realize that she was doing this--which is why you can hear me singing like a moron in the background. :oops:

I actually enjoyed "Babes in Toyland", when I saw it last season.

Good luck with that Christmas wish list.

I'm so bummed I'm not at Dollywood now =( Thanks for the photos! It looks very, very pretty. The park said they will save my two tickets until January 2nd, so if some miracle pops up, I'll head down...I doubt it though.

Thanks for offering hospitality, Erik!

Really, my Christmas list is for all of us. (And, for the record, I have been really good this year.)

I'm sure that my leaving early is no reflection on Babes in Toyland. I'm really just not a show guy.

And, of course, as it turns out, the park is open today. Sorry, man.

Cool to see all the updates and changes to a great park. Wow on no Christmas Pyramid this year.

Yep, brings back some great memories and agreed with Larry, Babes in Toyland was a good show. The acrobats almost stole the show, but all did well. I'm not a show guy either, but it was a good time, as were the some of the others.

Terriffic coverage and thanks!

Yeah, that surprised me, too. The Christmas Pyramids were just such a staple. They weren't particularly accessible, though. Most guests didn't really seem to get it. I'm not even sure I did. :P

Definitely want to meet up in Orlando. Still going to be a few months away for me, though.

We're so awesome, Dolly sends us a Christmas card.*
