Santa Overload

Thursday night we had Santa come on the firetruck. They told us he will come between 6 and 9pm. He came right when the kids were getting out of the bath!!

It's a real big production for our town. The mayor, police chief, and commissioners all come out to deliver the presents that the parents provide.

Mallory is getting a lot more observant this year. She said to me after Santa had left, "Mommy, can you believe that Santa has the same wrapping paper that we do?" I need to be more careful next year for sure.

Friday night, we got to take a train to the North Pole! We did this last year, which you can read about HERE. We stepped it up this year and reserved the caboose. It was so much more fun and we brought a couple more friends with us too! We got to bring our own food and drinks aboard this time, so that was even better! The caboose was so cute, it was decorated with Christmas lights and wreaths, and it had some seats up in a second story, so the kids had a ball looking out the windows up there!

Making a craft and picking out a tattoo!

We had a great time and will reserve 2 cabooses next year so we can have more friends join in the fun!

Hey can you email me with info about the train? Is it local? I would love to do that next year - it looks like so much fun!

I'm emailing you right now! It's in Parrish, which is right near Ellenton. I think we got the tickets back in September, and it sold out in minutes!

A picture is worth a thousand works. The smiles of the children and the twinkle in their precious eyes just shout Merry Christmas.
