Polar Express

Last night I took Caleb to ride the Polar Express with my mother-in-law, Susan. I had heard for years what a wonderful excursion it was and finally thought Caleb would be old enough to enjoy it since he is so obsessed with thrains anyway. I ws a little worried about the weather since we had constant downpours over the last few days but after a lot of prayer the rain held out on us from 4:00 until we got home.

Caleb was so excited he couldn't wait the 20 minute ride to get there. We stopped in for a quick piece of pizza before the train took off and then boarded. They had all the train cars decorated for Christmas and all the children were wearing their pajamas like in the movie. They had some of the workers dressed up on the train that danced and sang the whole trip. They gave out tickets like on the movie that they came around and punched. Then we got to ride to the North Pole and pick up Santa Clause. Santa came on board with us and gave all the children silver bells.
It was such a fun trip and really put me in the Christmas spirit.

I posted some of the pictures below but for some reason Caleb refused to let me take his picture so there are not many.
