Waiting patiently for the train. It was pretty cold.
Russ and Reese--see she FINALLY smiled and was happy when the train was actually going and she knew she was OK. Love these faces.
They had the HELPERS dressed up and they passed out THE BIGGEST cookies ever, and hot chocolate. The cookies were so good and the hot chocolate was the perfect-drinkable temperature.
Raegan was SO HAPPY and SO EXCITED when we FINALLY told the kids (on our way there) where we were. She had a perma-grim the rest of the time. She kept saying "this isn't the REAL Polar Express, that's not the REAL North Pole, that doesn't look like the REAL Santa." UMMM
Me and Russ
This picture is all the kids pressed up against the window looking at the North Pole. They had a whole little village set up with houses and trees--everything lite up in lights. Santa was there with his sleigh and reindeer.
And then Santa got ON the train and came and talked to the kids. He gave them all a bell.
On the train we played games and sang Christmas songs. They read the Polar Express book. I hope my kids will have this good memory for a long time. Merry Christmas.

Raegan has really liked playing the piano. She picked it up really quickly. She too needs to practice more. I hope this is something both kids continue to do.

We just had our family pictures taken by my friend Brianna Brimhall. She did an amazing job with what she had to work with HAHA. I love them. I'm super excited to share them and FINALLY have a good family picture. I think our last picture was when Randal was still here and Reese was 6 months old. YIKES!! Looking at these I realize just how big my kids are getting. Riley will be a teenager before I know it. They are darn cute kids though. Thanks Bri.

Reese and her joy school friends went on a field trip to the Willis Farm's pumpkin patch. They thought it was so great. And it was. They got to go on a walk threw the corn maze. We have never done that so I thought that was pretty fun. They had to find the corn that had different colored ribbons on them. Once they found that color we read on our paper a cool farm fact and then they had to act out something. Super cute. Then they all found their perfect pumpkins. They are so cute and get so excited about such simple things. Oh to be a child again.

We just got back from a quick trip to Utah. Our favorite little Koleiar got baptized on October 8th. We are so proud of him, and very glad we got to go. Ninna was a lifesaver and rode with me so I didn't have to go by myself. His favorite aunt Marcie gave a talk on The Holy Ghost. I compared the Holy Ghost to a stop light. It was a great experience and one I hope every one will remember. It was so great to spend a few hours with my family and get to visit. We love you Koleiar.
