|Ready to go to the train!|
|Noah was so excited about his ticket!|
Once the train pulled in we took Noah over to it and told him the surprise - he was very excited! He finally got to know why he and Ryan were in their pajamas all day :) We got all loaded up and headed out! There were carolers, an elf read The Night Before Christmas, we helped the elves with a snowball fight and race, we watched a live reenactment of the First Christmas, had cookies and hot chocolate, learned the story behind candy canes and enjoyed a few of those too, and Santa came by and sat with each kid and talked to them - it was SO fun!

This was all of our first ride on a real train - I loved that we were able to share this first together as a family. The scenery was beautiful and the kids were awesome! I believe we have found a new family tradition!

|Naughty list for sure!|
|Ryan was scared in the tunnel so Noah was comforting her :)|
