The Polar Express

The first weekend of December, we embarked on a journey on the Polar Express! We boarded the train in Elmhurst and set out on our one hour ride to the North Pole.
Duncan enjoyed the view, watching all of the homes and cars pass by the window.
We all ate cheese, crackers, and pepperoni on the way to the North Pole as we listed to the reading of "The Polar Express." Elsie has her special ticket ready for the conductor.
When we got to the North Pole, Santa joined us on the train. He stopped by to talk to each child and ask what they wanted for Christmas. Elsie asked for a tiger (a stuffed tiger), a black jacket, and Christmas lights. Elsie was a little apprehensive about sitting near Santa, but did a great job talking with him from from Mommy's lap.
When it was time to get her picture taken with Santa, she was still a little too nervous.
On the way back to Elmhurst, we sung carols and played with our sticker book.

We had a great time on the Polar Express!
