All Aboard

The Polar Express is one of my favorite books.
I loved reading it to my first graders and was so excited to take them on a class trip to see the movie when it came out. The movie is so well done and seeing it on the big screen was so memorable! Lydia has been watching the movie this week and seems very interested in it and trains this week. Tonight we went to the Historic L & N Train Depot in BG to load the train and listen to a reading of the book.
Zoe and Lydia had a great time looking at the trains in the depot and listening to the reader. Santa was on the train as we exited, but the girls were not to interested in his company! But they did take a bell for a souvenir.

A lot of our friends got to enjoy the Train Station and Museum too tonight- The Smalling crew were in the group before ours:
And here is the Jones Family:

One happy girl tonight as we arrived back home!

Pretty Pretty Princesses

Dress up is probably Lydia's favorite activity- we go through so many dresses, heels, beads, and purses each day! Luckily, her friends love to dress up too when they come to visit. As soon as Lydia's pal Zoe came in the door today she went straight for the dress basket! They sure did look cute!

and baby Luke better get ready, I have a feeling that his big sis and her buddies will be dressing him up soon too! He is such a cutie pie- I can't believe how much he is growing so fast!!!
