All Aboard

Last night, our Sunday School class loaded up for a long trek to the North Pole.
We packed our bags and our pajama-clad babes and boarded the Polar Express for a trip to see Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
Look at those teensy bare feet!
We can still do that here in the South.
Bare feet in December.
It was a balmy 75 degrees yesterday.
I am going to hate covering up those precious toes once the weather turns cooler.

All aboard! 

Love these two so much!
Baker just loves his daddy and he just loves his daddy's beard.
No Shave November has turned into No Shave December.
I'm just hoping my dearly beloved is not trying to channel his inner Willie Robertson. We love us some Duck Dynasty in this house.
In the words of Uncle Si, it makes us "happy, happy, happy."
Back to the train ride.

Sweet Audrey waiting to see Santa. 

 I love the anticipation on their faces.
We adore these sweet babies and their precious families.

She got a key!

Dunkin and Elly with Santa and the Missus.

It's our turn!
Santa telling Baker he was on the nice list.

They were absolutely wonderful.
Took time with each child,
each family.
Special memories for our first Christmas as a family of three.
And again.
Daddy love. 

Elly and Baker are in school together.
They have play dates in the swing every morning.
Elly's daddy says he's keeping a close eye on our boy!

After chocolate milk and chocolate cookies,
a trip to Santa's workshop,
Christmas carols galore,
a visit from Saint Nick himself,
it was time to head home.
But not before a stop at Dreamland.
Mmmm. Mmmmm.
Seeing all the children and their parents laugh and smile and celebrate
was such a joy!
After last night, I am even more ready for Christmas morning.
Christmas has always been special,
but Christmas with a baby - wow!
There's nothing like it. 
This is good, good stuff.
