Weekend Snapshots

Wd had one main highlight of our weekend – the Polar Express train! Which was absolutely amazing. Worth every penny!

PJ photos beforehand!

We took the train Saturday night – its an hour drive from where we live. You are pre assigned seats which is really nice so there is no rush to get on. On each coach you have actors that sing and dance the entire time – you are served hot chocolate in souvenir mugs and cookies. Everyone gets their “golden ticket” souvenir as well!

Around half way you go through the North Pole portal and everything outside is decorated:

On the way back Santa visits (the train stops in the North Pole to let him on) and gives each kid a bell ornament.

I have to say it was by the far the best activity we have done with the girls and so much fun for everyone!

Other than that it was the usual weekend plus some organizing and new shelves in the girl’s closets to do so. We planned to go skating but the wind was a tad chilly so instead we organized. Avery is a mini hoarder and tries to keep everything so thankfully we got that under control a bit too!

I can hardly believe it is the week before Christmas! I still have wrapping to do this week but other than that I am ready!
