Polar Express!

We headed to Chattanooga, TN last night to ride the Polar Express to the North Pole to pick up Santa. We went with our friends Kelly and Tom and their son Ty (AKA Ramsey's best buddy) and our other friends Jim and Jenn and their two kids Nate and Emily. We left town about 4:30 stopped for dinner and then made it to the train in time. We had great seats on the train and everyone enjoyed it! We heard the story of the polar express the kids got cookies and chocolate milk and then we hit the north pole to get SANTA! Santa got on and visited with each kid. Ramsey went right to to and smiled for the picture like it was his job. He asked Santa for a "race car" and was so proud of himself. After we got back to the depot and we're about to get off the train he said "but where is my race car?" He is so used to instant gratification he doesn't quite get the the waiting until Christmas concept. I guess that is in part due to my awesome parenting. Anyway, it was a good little evening of Christmas magic for the kids and anything we can do to make out little charge smile, we're in!

He wore his new Chritmas PJ's and cool new slippers from Aunt Paige:
