Last night I took the kids to the library for a reading of the book Polar Express. Everyone was encouraged to come in their pajamas and bring their favorite blanket, in the spirit of the story. One of the library ladies read the book while the pictures were projected up on a big screen. It was really neat and we had a wonderful time!
Here are the kids with their train tickets, waiting for their 'ride' to begin.
After the reading, they had craft-time, where they made train lanterns.
Next stop was hot chocolate, cookies, and a candy cane.
Abigail was in awe of the conductor, and was so excited at the prospect of having her picture taken with him that she was beaming. David decided it wasn't cool to have his picture taken with the conductor (how did we get to this stage of growing up already?!) but at the very last minute, the magic of childhood won out and he ran over to be in the picture, too!
This was a really fun Christmastime festivity!
