We just got back from the North Pole! It was a great trip!
Our train left at 5PM this evening. It was almost dark and you could hear the steam whistle coming before you could see the light.
Before boarding the train. (We left Carson with Grandma Vancil so we could enjoy our trip with Parker)
There was time to make a craft in a heated room with Daddy....A cool ornament to hang on our tree...
He talked to Santa, he told him he wanted "presents". We helped Parker be a little more specific on what he would like Santa to bring. Then Santa gave Parker a shiny bell.
Parker inspected it with Santa and then graciously gave it back to Santa...
We had to explain that that was his gift from Santa to keep. Once he understood, he wouldn't let go of the bell!
After having our turn with Santa, we were able to let the boys play with some train tracks and pieces before our train began boarding to take us back to Iowa.
