The Polar Express







Saturday, our family had a fun-filled day. We had to be at the Selma Train Station at 9:00 am. Unfortunately for everyone involved, I had the inside scoop that the buses weren't pulling out until 9:30, which means to me that we didn't have to be there until 9:20! Needless to say, we were the last ones there and the buses pulled out about 5 minutes after we got there. Oh well, we still had plenty of time left. We rode the charter bus to the Raleigh Train Station, where we awaited arrival of the train. When we boarded the train, we headed back toward Selma. On the way back, Santa Claus came around to every boy and girl to ask them what they wanted for Christmas. Landon was so excited. He spotted Santa from a mile away! He couldn't quit talking about it, especially since Santa knew him by name! Nixon was none too thrilled, but I guess that goes with the age. When we got back to Selma, Landon was able to sit on Santa's lap to make sure that he got the whole list right. Then Chris and the boys rode Tommy the Train and walked through the caboose that's on site. We topped the morning off by stopped by "MitDonalds", which of course is Landon's favorite place. Well, there and Pizza Hut! It was a great day filled with loads of fun! I hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
