North Pole Flyer

Just a few more Christmas Activity posts I need to get in...bear with me..... :))

It was the week before Christmas......
And all through the house these kiddos were stirring to get out.....
And take a train ride to the North Pole (ok the poem thing didn't quite last)!
We had our own private car with 30 of our friends (really our own car! It rocked!)!!
The Baby was excited to go on a train ride at night, all dressed in his PJs waiting to meet Santa....
Brody hung out with the girls, hanging his head out the window (note the sign on the wall he clearly did not obey).
These besties had fun in their own private room they discovered - the room was for the dads to play poker in but the kiddos took it over quickly!
The Conductor punched all the kids tickets for the 2 hour excursion.
So many fun activities were planned - storytime with cookies & cocoa.
Santa sat and visited with all the kids for a long time.
This was the year of Santa for Bubba - he just LOVED "Ho,Ho,Ho".
As did the girlies!

All the moms got a quick pic with Santa too!

Mrs. Claus came by with homemade sugar cookies from the North Pole!
So the Dads had to get one with her too!

We have taken Christmas train rides before, but this was by far the best one we have been on.  Obviously, with our own car, it's like we had our own party on wheels - it was relaxed, the kids had a wonderful time, so the adults could visit and enjoy themselves too.  It was nice that it lasted for 2 hours - it was never rushed and we enjoyed all the fun that came with the ride.

It was the perfect evening for family fun!
