Polar Express II


 
 


 
Last  year we went up to Williams to take the kids on the Polar Express. We had such a magical time that we decided to do it again this year. Us Yumians are not used to the cold! We froze our little noses off, but it was well worth it. The oldest 3 were so excited by every little thing- from the hot chocolate to the lights of the north pole, and of course the sleigh bells from Santa! Ben, being the not-yet-2 year old that he is, wasnt too interested in much besides trying to crawl in between the the seats. What really surprised me though was how excited Daniel was this year. You know how Buddy the Elf gets so excited at the department store when they announce Santas coming? Daniel acted just like that when Santa came dancing down the aisle. (I lied. It wasnt Daniel....... it was me.) Daniel was humiliated that his rapidly aging wife started acting like a 4 year old, jumping up and down to see the jolly old fat man. What can I say? I am a kid at heart- especially at Christmas time.

That looks so fun! Because of all the posts I read about this last year I got tickets this year. We can't wait to go in a couple week!

P.S. I'll let you know if I act like a little kid when Santa comes.

Love the comparison between yourself and Buddy. I can totally picture you doing that. Haha! Glad you had fun.

Yup! My Kimmie loves Christmas (it would have been totally cool though to see Daniel acting like Buddy)-- (sorry I forgot to change my identity again)

I'm so bummed we never took the time to go do that while we lived in AZ. Oh well, we'll just have to find some fun Christmas traditions to take part of here.

That sounds like so much fun! I've never heard of that before- I'll have to get the details from you!

I love it, I wish we had gone before Skyler was "enlightened" last year, it will not be as much fun now.

Your kids are so lucky to have such a fun loving mom.

Priceless pictures!
