Polar Express or the North Pole

So this happened a while ago.. but this last month or so has been so busy for us. all this family coming into town. monte getting done with one more semester of school. and babysitting. and then just the day to day life. but a few weeks ago we took a trip up to HorseShoe bend for montes Summer job's work party. we got on the train and cole seemed to be pretty excited about it. he didnt really know what was going on. when santa started walking around he looked at him like "WHO THE HECK IS THAT??" but he didnt seem scared. untill.. we made him sit on his lap. that didnt work out well. thats why we just decided to take a family picture.
we went on a long ride.. it didnt seem like long cuz we has a blast... but then we stopped at the "North Pole" and we were given cookies and milk ( chocolate or strawberry or just plain) there was a fire and carolers and little houses you could go in.. cole had a lot of fun just playing in the houses pulling the huge candy canes outta the ground and chasing our friends little boy Luke around..

It was a very fun day! and we'd recommend it to everyone.. :)
hope everyone is having a good holiday season and enjoying the snow i know we sure are!! :)

Looks like fun! I probably shouldn't laugh about it, but I think it's so funny to watch like kids' reactions to Santa Clause. And I'm very impressed with Cole's blanket that you made!
