Polar Express

We celebrated Christmas with Scott's family while everybody was together for Thanksgiving.  After we finished our Reindeer games, Jeannie did a sing a long for all the kids (big and small) and we really got into the Christmas spirit.  We opened gifts that evening.

The family just keeps getting bigger and bigger……and louder:)

Waiting patiently to open their gift from grandma.
Everybody opened their gift at the same time……it was tickets to ride on the Polar Express
Oh and you had to be dressed in Pajamas……well no worries grandma has us all covered.
We set out for the Polar Express the next afternoon all in matching PJ's……all 24 of us (I think that's how many we are now)

We had the entire upstairs of one of the train cars to ourselves and we had so much fun.  The Polar Express ride was a wonderful gift to the family and I am hoping we can make it a tradition.  They read the story to everybody, served hot chocolate and a cookie, we picked up Santa and visited with him, Santa gave a bell to everybody, sang Christmas Carols and rode by one of the Christmas light displays.
Nora listening to the story…..
That is one big cookie….
Here is the big man himself
The Polar Express was a perfect way to start the holiday season and get into the Christmas spirit. Thank you Jeannie for such a wonderful gift and I am loving my new Pajama pants, they are very comfy.

And guess who came back on December 1st?  Mr Christmas
He came on the Batmobile and crashed on our island again.
The kids have been super excited.
More on his shenanigans in another post.
