The Polar Express



If you've not watched this adorable movie with a loved little child..or even a
loved BIG child, you are in for such a treat.



 On Christmas Eve, a doubting boy boards a magical train that's headed to the North Pole and Santa Claus's home.

 Parts of this post are from a few years back...


BRYNNA, DEEDS and her friend....

Beautiful daughter, STACY and her man, JENT





The setting is just fabulous...

  11. Congratulations on the new GREAT-grandbaby on the way! Your beautiful family just keeps growing & growing, BJ. I'm so glad you are surrounded by so much love.
    We did the Polar Express experience here in Ohio soon after we moved back home to be near family.
    I didn't capture as many cute photos as you did, though. I did blog about it a bit here: http://rettspace.blogspot.com/2010/11/polar-express.html
    and I still have the cup that we got to bring home with us, too. Fun experience!
