Christmas is Near!

Is the excitement growing in your household? It sure is at our house! For many years now, we have enjoyed the Polar Express train in Bryson City, North Carolina. It reminds you that love is the reason for the season. Once aboard the train, everyone enjoys refreshments, reads the classic story, sings carols, and whispers their wish list to Santa. I encourage you to look it up and go with your family. No matter your age, it’s the perfect way to enjoy family!

I’ll post pictures from our North Pole journey soon. Until then, enjoy photos of our elf ‘Pigpen’. He has been very busy!

Elf is for Adults Too

My husband and I enjoy the spirit of the Elf on the Shelf. We alternate moving our elf ‘Pig-Pen’ throughout our home. It has actually become a fun competition to see who is more creative.
