Okay, not really! But today Mekhi and I went to Centennial Olympic Park for the kickoff celebration for the "12 Days of Arthur Christmas." We had a ball snow tubing and playing on the snow.
Visitors had a chance to win a prized appointment with the Phipps Santa Claus tomorrow - if you are an Atlanta resident you know appointments with Santa sell out quickly - and guess what? Mekhi will be visiting SANTA for the very first time! Here is a listing of the rest of the free events for the 12 Days of Arthur Christmas - on the final day the movie will be released!
