Polar Express

This weekend we rode the Polar Express in Palestine, TX and it was a BLAST! A COLD BLAST! It got down to around 28 degrees and VERY windy! But the train ride was a little warmer and the girls loved it. We sang Christmas carols, had hot chocolate & rice crispy treats, read the Polar Express, Santa and his elves got on and passed out bells to all the kids and took pics, the girls got to wear their PJ's and we even learned a lot about a steam train in the process. It was a lot of fun and here are a few pictures from the weekend.
