We went to ride the Christmas train again this year.
It was a bit blustery so we all bundled up.
We started on the little train ride.
And Pappy and MeeMee both joined in.
Then we climbed aboard the great big coal train.
And headed to the North Pole.
Where Benjamin met a Christmas elf.
And we all saw Santa Claus.
Grace told him she wanted a snowman and cotton candy maker.
Faith barely hugged him and wouldn't say a thing.
As an extra treat, we got to see Mrs. Claus!
Then we had time to decorate our wooden trains.
Faith colored hers with crayons.
Benjamin let his Daddy decorate his.
Then he admired his work and tried to eat it.
And Grace just wanted to play with hers on the tracks while the rest of us enjoyed hot chocolate and warm molasses cookies.
