We went to visit our favorite Santa Tuesday night at Opryland hotel. This year I was a little disappointed because they had turned a visit with Santa into a big money maker. They moved him to one of the ballrooms and had set up a whole gift shop, train and tree exhibit. They also had a booth for the ICE! which we did last year and it was the same. It just seemed more commercialized than in years past...anyway, the line was non existent so we got right in. They popped up on his lap and said "cheese". I think next year we are going to hit the Bass Pro Santa because I have heard from several sources that he is great and the pictures are free - if we can just keep the kids from begging us to buy hunting and or fishing equipment it will be worth it!
