Chuga, Chuga, Chuga, Chuga, Choo! Choo!

One of our Christmas traditions is getting out the Christmas train! Stacey II had one of these when he was little and has fond memories of setting it up every year. So one morning a week or so ago the boys got some new train tracks in their stockings (a post on that coming soon).

They COULD NOT WAIT to set up the train. They begged and pleaded ALL day, but this is a special Daddy tradition, so finally when Daddy got home from making what I am sure will be some life changing videos for the ski trip (that would be written in sarcasm font is there was such a thing - he is an ice skater, a vampires best friend and and environmental rapper??) we went to work putting the track together and getting out each part of the train.

III waiting for Daddy to get home!
I figured the boys would like this but their excitement about it this year was seriously beyond description!
It was worth the wait!

If you look closely at this picture you can see the little puffs of smoke coming from the engine - pretty cool!
I'm loving this season and all its fun family traditions!!

I love the picture of all three of them sitting and watching the train! So precious. And that's an awesome engine! I'll have to tell you how life changing the ski trip videos are; I'm sure I'll come back a new woman from the ice skating/vampire/rapping. Oh my.
