Choo Choo...

Our youngest son Elijah is totally into Thomas the train. This past Saturday our family, my parents, sister and nephew all went on a train ride. It was the first time I had ever been on a train, and the kids were so excited. The look on all of their faces when the train pulled up was priceless, but the look on Elijah's face, well it was just precious. He could not believe that a train was coming and he was going to get on it. The entire trip he kept saying "choo choo" and was loving being on it. The train traveled about 1/2 hour and then stopped at "Santa land". The kids all got their pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Clause and then we got back on the train to head home. We had hot chocolate, cookies, and there were elves doing some tricks during the journey. Here are a few pictures I wanted to share with you. We had such a great time. Oh, everyday we get up, Elijah asks if we can go on the choo choo again! It was so worth it, and he is going to get a "Thomas" kind of Christmas too. I am excited for all the gifts we are giving, and for all my kids, but I think I am really excited for him. It just seems to kind of all go together this year. Maybe it is just because he is only 2 and is really getting it this year. I don't know, but I do know that I can't wait for next week!
