Polar Express

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you are laying back enjoying the last day of the long holiday weekend.

our Thanksgiving was wonderful… great food and great company. I selfishly wish I could share it with EVERYONE I know and love, but that’s just too much to ask for. the dad and I are so fortunate to have such a helpful family, by the time the door closes all the dishes are done and  left overs packed up. All that’s left for us to do is tub the kids and put them to bed. the second part of the evening has become a loved tradition… grab a plate of food or soup put on a movie and relax… until Saturday

Grandma and Grandpa gave the kiddos their Christmas present early this year….

A ticket on the POLAR EXPRESS

magical is really the only word suitable to describe the event.

the entire town of Williams participates… the town is decked out for Christmas, all the homes are lit up with lights, the characters are completely in to their roles, everyone working makes you feel welcome, Christmas music is playing through out the station, and my very favorite part was that EVERYONE stopped to wave when the train passed by. i mean there were hands out car windows and shop doors… totally cool.

it was so much for all of us…

the bear was a handful but she’s wee so what could i expect. I won’t go on and on with details it was just like the book. so here are some of my favorite moments… Enjoy

    the Monk telling the dad if he’s gonna sing he had better use his good singing voice (serious stuff)

make yourself at home bear

the little stink face is so cute even the chef couldn’t resist picking her up to see the lights of the North Pole. RT was like that too he was such a handful but if someone looked his way he would bat his little lashes and sure enough they would pick him up or at the very least stop to talk with him… it’s still like that

here comes Santa!!!!!

listening to his bell jingle

Boo was there too we just could capture his face in ANY of the pictures… there was just to much to look at every time i clicked he turned to see something else.

there’s the little man…

RT asked asked on the car ride home if it was Christmas time in the City… Yes little brother it is!!!!!
