Tickets please!

We took a fascinating Polar Express train ride to the north pole. What a trip! It will be a fun memory for our family and something we will look forward to doing next year (hopefully- since the tickets sell out quickly). It is called the Polar Express train ride, and more information can be found HERE.

Below is a snapshot sampling of our fun-filled night…

With the kids wearing their pjs, we stepped into the story as we got on the Christmas train to the north pole. ALL ABOARD!!!!

As we found our seat, we heard the Polar Express soundtrack playing throughout the train. We were happily greeted, and oh so excited for our adventure!

And yes… they punched our tickets!A favorite part of the book and movie was recreated…  HOT CHOCOLATE was served with dance and song!

We delighted in our hot chocolate and cookies as the Polar Express book was read to us on our train excursion to the north pole.

As we reached the north pole, we looked out of our train window and found Santa awaiting our arrival and waving to us! We anxiously and excitedly waited for Santa to get on the train and say hello to us.

Elle had her list ready and waiting. 😉

With big smiles, we talked with Santa and were given a jingle bell.

On our train travels home, we all enjoyed singing Christmas carols.

It was a night to remember!

As the book reads… “… the bell still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe.”

Those who believe, can hear the jingle bell ring. Even though the hearing of the bell in this story refers to believing in Santa, we hear a different bell – the reason of the season“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

Merry Christmas! 🙂

We had these glasses lying around our house to use for a photo shoot down the road… thinking it would be better to use them when the kids got older – so they would actually stay on! Well, Thanksgiving was quickly approaching, and we still hadn’t had time to think of what to do for this year’s Christmas card. Our calendar was looking full, and we had Thanksgiving free. So the day before, we got desparate and decided to go the glasses route. Squeezing in pictures between church and making the Thanksgiving dinner actually went smoother than we thought. Tater even had time to jerry-rig the oversized glasses to fit on our kid’s little pint sized heads. We had fun giggling with the kids trying to get them to make smiling faces to a blinking camera on a stand. So here we have our 2010 Christmas Card… Merry Christmas to all!

This little missy’s head was still a little too tiny. The big glasses kept falling off in the big group shot… so we did her own little photo shoot and used her in the real glasses for the stamp. 😉

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients this year! We enjoyed each and every one of you! Here are a few of your Christmas orders that went out this year.

We were pleased to introduce new card styles this year. Here is one of those styles ~ our ornamental circle card.

Of course, unique products always add a special touch.

We hope all of our readers are enjoying this Christmas season!

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
