Sledding and Four Wheeling

We are taking advantage of the snow!  Since we don't have any sledding hills, we make due with pulling a sled behind a 4-wheeler.

Chuck E. Cheese

Yes - we visited the Big Cheese.  I think the adults were more involved in racking up tickets than THE KID.  But it was fun and the Pizza was good!

Part Four: Santa Came!

And this concludes the events leading up to The Major Event.

We unwrapped presents from nine in the morning until seven at night. Everything had to be played with immediately!

Part Three: Trains

Little boys like trains. Need I say more? 

 The day after the Polar Express Wyatt spent the day driving his train around the tracks.

Part Two: The Polar Express

Our local railway offers a Polar Express train during the weekends leading up to Christmas.  Travelers are encouraged to wear their PJs!  Once you've been loaded up, the elves serve you hot chocolate and cookies while the conductor comes around and stamps your initials on your tickets!  The whole time the train is headed into the mountain foothills to the North Pole where Santa is standing outside waiting for a ride and waving to all the passengers.  While we traveled we sang Christmas Carols. Once we came up on North Pole Town,  I put the window down for Wyatt who hung all the way out waving and yelling, "Stop! Stop! Sanna! Hi Sanna!"

Once Santa was on board he came around and gave all the kids a Christmas Bell!
Then we headed back to the Depot for pictures!

Wyatt loves Santa.  He is shy with strangers at first, but not with 'Ol Saint Nick!  No matter where we were this Christmas season, Wyatt had to go see Santa - which sometimes was an issue as he was at Walmart and I needed to get shopping done, and he wanted to stay. Or when he chased him down the aisle of the train, or waiting in get the picture.

Christmas Catch-Up: Part 1 - Gingerbread Crack House

Since I have crappy internet at home I do apologize for not staying more up to usual. The next few posts will be catching you up with the events leading up to...and after Santa's Big Visit.

Once I was free from school, the first thing we did was make a gingerbread house!!!

This is what it should have looked like (yes, it was a modular. I just had to put it together):

Instead this was how it ended up -

 I like the tweaked out gingerbread man's eyes...
