This How We Roll

Yesterday we took Zach to ride the Christmas train. He loved it, and I hope we've started a tradition. He looks like a little blue elf in this picture.

They overbooked the train by 300 tickets, and we were the last ones to get on it. It was a close call! There were some mad people behind us determined to have fun with their kids. Kind of ironic! I don't blame them though. At least they were able to take a ride when we returned.
After we found a seat, the conductor came to our car and said he needed three people to move to first class, so we volunteered. Rough life, I know. ; )

If this wasn't enough, the conductor then asked if I will lead the car in singing Christmas carols. I said yes because I thought he was kidding! He wasn't. So here I am singing from the carol book. I just tried to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. Hilarious!

Who is THIS!?

My friend from Bible study Elli and her sweet family met us. It was her idea to ride the Christmas train. Thanks, Elli!

Didn't even know there was a Christmas train! That looks fun!

Lucky you guys. First being the last people to be allowed to board and then getting ugraded to first class. YaY!!!
It looks like fun. We have two Christmas trains around here. We have considered taking CJ on it, but he is petrified of Santa and we don't really get into the Santa thing. So not sure.
I do want to take him to ride Thomas when he comes back to our area.

The train looks like fun!! We have a train by us and we always go for the Christmas ride, it's so pretty!!
I got your comment on my blog the containers are from Walmart and I got the letters (they are stickers) in the scrapbook section at Michael's and put them on top! It was super easy and I think it looks cute!
Have a great week.

I think that's a GREAT tradition to start - I too would have paid money to hear you lead Christmas carols!

I want to do more too for all those children! I worry about the ones that don't get picked too!

I'm so sad I missed your singing debut on the Christmas train! I love it!

Thank you so much for bring Zach in today! He is so precious. I could have played with him all day! And he really did good and didn't cry. Anyways... It was good to see you and thanks again!
