Polar Express

I guess I'll stop procrastinating...
Before Christmas we took our kids on the Polar Express. It was really lame. We went on a train ride, which was cool except for Fred's need to move around. When we arrived at the 'North Pole' everyone got out and formed a line to see Santa. It was cold and the village was made up of props and they had four people dressed up as village people caroling (they could never land jobs at Disneyland). My girls didn't care to see Santa. Chloe is a connoisseur of Santas and doesn't waste her time with the fake ones. So we grabbed some 'free' cookies and milk and waited on the train.


Clockwise: Eating cookies. Looking cute. Freezing on an open car.
Getting a picture with Santa for Mom.

Quick picture before getting back on (and snagging better seats). Peace, at last.

Hey Gir,
You guys are one active family that NEVER stops! It was good to see you on Sunday! I wish I could have stuck around to say HI!!!! Fred was soooo CUTE I cant believe What a Big boy he is. Well I dont mean BIG BIG I just mean last time I saw him he was bald and tiny! Always CUTE though.

I heard rumors that Polar Express (Heber Creeper) was lame as well, so I haven't wasted my time with it. But I've always deep down wanted to take my boys...Good to hear that the rumors are confirmed. I won't go. Your kids just keep getting cuter and cuter.

I love the disinterested look the girls have on their face while standing with Santa!
