All Aboard

We pulled Morgan out of school this week and took the girls on a little surprise family vacation. We took them to the Grand Canyon and then for a ride on the Polar Express train to the "North Pole." It was amazing becuase we woke up Tuesday morning to a dusting of snow at our house and then hit snow on the way there. When we got there the high was like 35 degrees so it REALLY felt like Christmas when we boarded the train. The girls liked all the snow and the canyon although they were scared to death to stand to close for pictures. We had to bribe them to pose long enough for Dan to take a picture. As you can see Ryanne is making a break for it here.
Poor Dan, I should have mentioned that he was about to get hit with a snowball in the back of the head but then I would have missed my shot! ;)
The girls were surprised when we got to the lodge and we had new PJ's all wrapped up for them. They had so much fun and the old train was awsome! Hot chocolate, cookies, a long ride out to the North pole, sining Christmas songs, and just being together.........yup' felt just like Christmas should.
Santa had to move fast so he could get to all the kids but when Ryanne looked up at him with those big blue eyes and said,"Merry Christmas Santa" he just couldn't help but stop for a second longer. :)
Morgan is sitting here watching for the North Pole. I love this picture because you can see her reflexion in the window. Sooooo cute! It was so cold when we got done that all the windows were iced over and their was ice hanging from the train. I tried to get the elf to carry me to my room becuase I was freezing but no go! ;)

That sounds like so much fun. I have heard about that train ride but have never been on it. Your kids are so lucky! Ok, not lucky, just super super blessed!

I knew you guys were going to have soooo much fun. I hope we get to take that trip some day before the kids are to old for the magic of it.
