Saturday was POLAR EXPRESS!  The train ride goes from Palestine to Rusk and back.  We sung carols, drank hot chocolate, ate cookies, read the Polar Express, visited the North Pole, and even got a visit from SANTA!  It was just as magical as I had imagined.  All three boys were all decked out in there matching jammies.  Watching their faces and seeing their excitement was priceless.  This will definitely be a family tradition.

Ready to ride!

Waiting for the train

Just a little excited!

We've been good, Santa. Promise.

Ticket punch. Check.

I was just as excited as the boys. Maybe more.

We have been listening to jingling bells (courtesy of Santa) ever since.
