Every year since our kids were little, we read the Polar Express on Christmas Eve. This year we decided to make it come alive. We dress the kids all up in their PJ's ... and with their cousins ... we boarded the Polar Express. The kids loved it. We sang carols with the Elves, had our tickets punched by the conductor, drank hot chocolate, and arrived at the North Pole safe and sound. Santa and Mrs Claus came and talked to each of the kids and of course gave them their very own Christmas bell. Nana and Papa got the biggest cheers as they competed against other grandparents. Even Tavin got in the Christmas spirit and started dancing in the aisles. (Not to mention ... the Elves were thinking Tavin looked pretty good that night! Haha) Riding the Polar Express was the perfect way to usher in the Christmas Season!
