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! 🙂
