Presents for the children wrapped in red and green. All the things I've heard about, but never really seen. No one will be sleeping on the night of Christmas Eve hoping Santa's on his way. When Santa's sleigh bells ring, I listen all around. The herald angels sing. I never hear a sound. When all the dreams of children, once lost will all be found. That's all I want When Christmas Comes to Town. That's all I want when Christmas Comes to Town.
The above lyrics are from The Polar Express soundtrack. The songs Believe & When Christmas Come to Town are my two favorites. James really loves the Hot Chocolate Song & Paige is partial to The Polar Express Song. If you haven't a clue of what I am talking about. Do yourself a favor, welcome yourself into this decade of kids movies, and rent the movie. It is worth it. Also to check out the experience you can click here.
We went to Polar Express this last weekend with Jason's family. It is so much fun and a really great tradition for the young & old. I love that the couple sitting behind us in the train were an elderly couple with no kids. You are never too old to believe in the magic of Christmas. We were fortunate enough to have some good snow this year. We stayed over night in the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, and rode the train that night. You board, sing carols, go for a great ride, they pass out cookies & hot chocolate, read the story of the Polar Express. Santa boards the train and gives each child a bell. It is so great! We have done it the last 2 years and I am so glad. It really is a great time to be together & fairly inexpensive for a family of 4. You have to book way in advance (FYI) - Anyway, it reminds me to listen for the bell this time of year and every year... to never loose the magic of Christmas in your heart!
