I was going to tell you of a few horror stories that I beheld today. But I just don't have the heart.
Let's instead focus on good. Remember, I'm trying not to sweat the small stuff.
Marissa and her mommy came to help bake cookies and in between batches we watched the train whiz around the track carrying Santa, some children, a snowman, and a deer.
We watched ice skaters on the colorful fiber-optic pond, gently gliding back and forth.
We baked and we baked and we baked.
And the results were good.
