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.
