I know I am way behind on posts. Christmas came and went and I haven’t even told you about our Thanksgiving trip yet. Oh well. I’ll get to it soon I hope. Today, though, I feel like making a Christmasy post.
Every year my Grumpy sends us Christmas money to get the kids something from him. We try to use it to create fun memories or DO something we normally wouldn’t get to do instead of just adding more stuff to our home. This year we decided to do something we could only do in Colorado. We took a Christmas train ride up in the mountains on the historic Georgetown Railroad.
We all bundled up. It was beautiful and snowy and very Christmasy.
Santa found our little guys even before we got on the train.
Because of the snowy tracks the train just goes back and forth on its route around the mountain so it doesn’t ever have to switch tracks. We sat in the very back of the train in the cattle car because that’s where it would be easiest to keep our herd together. That’s where the most windows were too, so we got a really good view of the winter wonderland.
Santa came through the train to see all the kids and he gave them each a special Christmas bell
and candy canes.
It was a fun adventure– creating just the kind of memories we had hoped.
