    We totally have a dinosaur in our Christmas tree too! Ours is a pterodactyl, and as my friend Erica says, “Nothing says Christmas like a pterodactyl.”

    Yeah, I thought it was kind of a strange combo too. Kinda like an oxymoron. There is really no point to the dinosaur being there except that is just where several dinosaurs, along with train tracks have decided to live for the meantime. Don’t you love kid logic?
