Christmas Morning

 Christmas morning this year may never be topped. We are a house full of believers, and nothing is more exciting than the magic of Santa these days.

My Christmas Present to Myself


Had to include a "put it together shot." Dont you love how I include morning photos of Taylor but not myself.

Polar Express

As most Arizonans know, the Grand Canyon Railway in Williams does "Polar Express" runs November through January.  Based upon the book, the train takes you to the North Pole to visit Santa all along stuffing you with cookies, hot chocolate, and Christmas Carols. We again, had so much fun this year, and the best part was that my parents were able to tag along. The smiles on my parents faces as they watched the kids was almost as fun as watching the kids themselves.

After "visiting" (I use that loosely as you can only look out the train windows) the North Pole, Santa boards the train to greet the kids and gives them their magical sleigh bells. Taylor insists to us that he cant hear them, that they are broken...but the rest of us hear them loud and clear. Thank you to the Nobles for making this happen.
