santa left tickets to the polar express for us in our stockings this year. so today we took the magical ride to the north pole. the kids were in awe the entire time. after having hot chocolate and cookies, getting their tickets punched with the words "love" and "hope" and meeting santa, they each got to hear a story about which reindeer their bell come from. macie's bell was from the sweetest reindeer of all, prancer. and brax's bell was from the fastest of all the reindeer, comet. it was the first time either of them had been on a train ride... or to the north pole!
