Christmas Weekend

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, as did we. Ryan and I kicked off the holiday weekend with a ride on the Polar Express in Bryson City, North Carolina. We’ve enjoyed this adventure for many years now. It’s a magical ride for the entire family, and I’ve included a few photos from our trip to the North Pole.

Not only do you have the pleasure of enjoying a train ride to the North Pole, but you can also explore a fantastic train museum before or after your journey. It’s an interactive experience for train lovers young and old. Don’t forget the train shop! I enjoyed picking up new ornaments & Santa for my tree.

Upon returning home, we enjoyed a relaxing Christmas Eve. We ate cookies, played Scrabble, opened a couple of gifts, and enjoyed a holiday television special. I’ve included a few pictures from our Christmas below. Lucy had to be involved in the action, along with her sister Annabelle.


Christmas is truly my favorite time of year! I hope you had a wonderful one as well. Check back soon for my last update on our elf ‘Pig-Pen’.
