the north pole express

This morning, we headed to Grapevine to ride the North Pole Express. We had been talking about this for a few days and preparing Abby as best we could. The whole way there she just kept saying, "Santa is nice. Not scary". Once we arrived we walked around for a bit and saw Frosty the Snowman and a (kind of creepy) reindeer. About 20 minutes before the train left we were entertained with songs and dancing inside of a tent. Then we boarded the train and went for a ride! Santa came through the train and said hi to all of the boys and girls. It was really a lot of fun! We sang more Christmas songs and enjoyed the ride! It was so nice to take a few hours out of this busy time of year and celebrate a little Christmas as a family.
