Polar Express...



My boys LOVE the Polar Express. We read that book atleast once a day...even when it's not winter time;) They both have it memorized, and they love the movie. We had a great trip last year, but decided we wouldn't do it again this year because of cost. Well our friend, Matt, very generously got us free tickets in the nicest car! We never would have spent the money on the nicer train, however, I would almost say it was worth it. Or maybe it's because my boys are older, but it was great. They didn't move from their seats (a miracle), and were calm and into it the whole time. I can honestly say it was a relaxing experience...is that crazy for those of you who know my boys? The train ride also seemed to be better then last year. Each song only played once, it was at much better volume and quality, and the service was better. There were more characters from the book too. And no Christmas carols. Not sure what was from the nicer seats and what was updated from year to year.
Reading the story...
Me with my boys...not the best picture of me;)
Noah cupping his hands just like in the story to yell, "Merry Christmas!"
Noah singing Josh Groban...gives you a little picture of how calm it was!
Jakey listening to his bell...
Santa giving the first gift of Christmas...it does look like he's had a few too many hot chocolates...

With the hobo...they weren't to interested;)
Noah ringing the bell and saying, "I believe!"
What a blessing those tickets were...so thankful to have such a fun experience with my boys again!
