The Polar Express 2010

This past Friday night, Nana LeeAnne and Granddaddy Curtis came up and took us all to ride on The Polar Express. We had planned this last year and then it snowed and Granddaddy and Nana couldn't make it, but our family went. You can read about that here. Luckily, the weather cooperated long enough this year for us all to be able to go. Since Brady was so small last year, he was especially excited!

We rode all the the way to The North Pole.

We sang a lot of songs on the way back
while we waited on Santa to come.
The kids helped lead "The Twelve Days of Christmas"

The big guy came around and gave out bells.
Luckily, everyone in our family can still hear the ringing!
And Santa stopped for one group shot! YEAY!

We really had a great time on the Polar Express. There is NOTHING like watching the wonder in your kids eyes as they watch for Santa to come into the car where they sit waiting.
I hope to remember these wonderful memories always. Thanks Granddaddy and Nana LeeAnne for making this possible for us! We all loved it!

This looks like fun! Beth took Cohen on something like this, but she said it was really expensive. :(
