Once there we got our tickets and hopped on the train.
Now I took pics of all the kids but my flash only works properly when it feels like it and it didn't feel like it for the first two kids. I feel badly about it but that's life. So Santa gave each of the children a bell like in the book and a little hot cocoa packet with a candy cane. Very cute.
After this we boarded the train and headed back to the station. We took the kids to McDonalds where a whole group of our friends (who also were on the train) were meeting up for lunch and play. I didn't take any pictures of that.
We all relaxed during nap time and then late in the afternoon we worked on a project I'll post about tomorrow. Then we decided to have our cocoa from Santa and watch Rudolph. We have it on DVD so we just watch it whenever it suits us during this season. Love that movie. Love the line about getting the women folk back to Christmas Town. It cracks me up every stinking time.
A few more pics of the kids enjoying the movie together (and ignore the mess it's a lived in house on a Saturday, what can I say? The living room was spotless and vacuumed at one point yesterday.)
|Sierra was intentionally hiding from the camera. It was super cute.|
|She was happy to give me a "cheese" though when I asked her to.|
|Colton was too engrossed watching to eat much of his make shift dinner.|
|It always amazes me how much kids move around during movies and yet still seem to enjoy them.|
|Except Kayd. He seems to have the sitting still thing down at the ripe old age of 6.|
