The Polar Express

I vowed that from Thanksgiving to Christmas this year, I'd make more time for fun with the kids. Last year's holidays just got away from us. So, to start off our holiday fun this year, we took a ride on the Polar Express. The kids were really excited for it!

My sister and Alan joined us (although in the next car).

Ayla enjoyed gazing out the window and relaying what she saw. This was one day where she talked a lot without a lot of sass. We had fun trying to watch for Santa and the North Pole.

The Polar Express provided complimentary hot chocolate and cookies. Obviously this little guy (our friends' nephew) enjoyed it!

Here is my small attempt at getting a picture of the kids together. It doesn't seem to happen much anymore. I know the fact that they were wearing jammies didn't thrill Ayden, but he still had a good time and let me snap a few shots. This was one day that it was perfectly acceptable to lounge around in jams all day. It was actually encouraged!

Next on the list of fun is attending the Wizard of Oz production with Ayvarie and her girlfriends. I might be looking forward to it more than the girls.
