All Aboard the Polar Express

On Saturday night our families did something we have never done for the holidays. We hoped on the "POLAR EXPRESS" train. We went to the North Pole! We saw elves, Mrs. Claus, and SANTA. It was a thrill for Zachary and Elliott. To be honest, I think it was a thrill for all of us. It was touching to see the excitement & joy in all the kids. I had tears in my eyes a couple of times when I would watch Elliott & Zachary with their grandparents. Just another reason why I love this time of year so much.

It looks like you all had a wonderful time. I watched the movie "The Polar Express" for the first time last week. I never knew that there was an actual train ride! So fun!
