The boys thought they were getting up for school but instead they got to open an early Christmas present; a trip on the Polar Express! We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in Williams, Arizona and were lucky enough to be there for the first snow of the season! It made the experience magical! The train ride to the "North Pole" was so much fun. They played the narrated version of the Polar Express, everyone sang Christmas carols, they served served hot chocolate and delicious chocolate chip cookies made my Mrs. Claus herself! When we reached the North Pole, Santa got on the train and visited each and every kid. They even got a bell as a gift from Santa! The next morning we couldn't stay long because there was a big snow storm coming and we didn't want to be stuck. But we did stay long enough to play in the snow a little and of course have a snowball fight :).

Our Elf Bubble is back from the North Pole! He surprised the kids with a special Elf breakfast complete with reindeer doughnuts and hot chocolate. This year he brought the kids a present...elf pajamas! They were so surprised and excited. Even Olivia was dancing around (all the doughnuts probably had a little something to do with it :).
These pictures are pretty blurry but I had to put them in. Olivia loving her hat and all the kids dancing around to Elf on the Shelf the movie!!! We are SUPER excited it's Christmas time!!

After some special birthday pancakes we had a fun little birthday party my big THREE year old! MyGym was the BEST. Parker and his friends from school loved climbing, swinging, running, and jumping around!
My sweet P is still the sweetest! He has grown up so much in the last few months. He loves everything he does at school. He sings songs, knows the alphabet, loves science, and his two best friends are Scarlet and Graham. Also, he's a lefty :). He is the best little brother and the sweetest big brother. Love him!
