Our family visited the North Pole on Sunday night. We rode on the Grand Canyon Railway's Polar Express. The train left Williams, Arizona and approx. 30 minutes later arrived at the North Pole. The photo above is of one of the granddaughters dressed in her pj's ready to board the train.
On our way to the North Pole some of Santa's elves served hot cocoa and Mrs. Claus' delicious cookies. Then they read us the book Polar Express. This is one of Santa's elves.
When we arrived at the North Pole we were greeted by Santa. It was too cold to visit the North Pole so we stayed on the train. Santa boarded the train and visited each train car. He presented all the children with one of his "Bells".
Below you see my beautiful DIL and two beautiful granddaughters with their bells. Bottom pictures shows the girls in their pjs.
My new header shows the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona as they looked on our drive to the train. Last year our Christmas trip was to Cabo, Mexico. We went from playing in the ocean last year to playing in the snow this year. Our son thinks he prefers swimming in the ocean in December!!! Granddaughters loved the snow since they have lived in the desert all their lives.
