Polar Express ...

On December 3rd, we took the kids on the Polar Express in Heber. We went with Ty's parents, Craig, Lindsey, Hunter, Cole, Austin, Mariah and Rorke! It was very cold, but so much fun! I just wish we would have taken a picture of all of us together. We decided to start the night off by having dinner at one of the kids favorite places to eat ... Dairy Keen! They have trains there!
Owen loved putting a quarter in the machine to watch the train go around and around!
Our cute cousin Rorke ...
Waiting to get on the train ... and in our P.J.'s of course ...


Being excited to go to the North Pole ...

Meeting one of Santa's elves ...
They gave us a chocolate chip cookie ...
and hot chocolate!
My "Nice" kids ...
Everyone read the book Polar Express together ...


Are we there yet? Where is Santa?
Owen yelled "HO!" in the microphone when asked to say "ho ho ho!" ...
Tickets are punched ...
Meeting Mrs. Claus ...
We sang The 12 Days of Christmas ...
Jacob took his part VERY seriously ...
And then finally met .... SANTA!!!

The kids with their bells ...
And the train we were on was taller than Owie Bowie ...
We had a great time being together as a family and look forward to going again next year! Happy Holidays Ya'll ...
