The Polar Express

All aboard the Polar Express!  The Texas State Railroad is bringing the Polar Express to life this holiday season and I couldn't be more excited!!  The Polar Express has always been one of my favorite Christmas stories and now we get to take Jack to the North Pole on the Polar Express!!! (as possibly the first thing to be crossed off my 101 list)  Hot chocolate and cookies are served by dancing chefs (dancing chefs!) while music from the Polar Express movie plays as we go from East Texas to Santa's North Pole Village.  Each child's ticket will personally be punched by the train conductor (super cool), then the book is read (by Liam Neeson, no less) while the chefs turn the pages in the original book.  When the Polar Express arrives at the North Pole, Santa Claus boards the train to personally give each kiddo a silver bell cut from his sleigh (OMG, seriously, a silver bell from Santa's sleigh?!? - I might just die - I've always wanted a silver bell from Santa)!!!  You know, only kids and true believers can hear the bell ring, and my bell would totally ring.  Can you tell how excited I am about this?  Maybe just a little....but wait, there's more!  All kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas on the train, and who are we kidding, you know I'll be in pj's, too (footie ones if I can find them).  Who's with me???  Get your tickets here, or by calling 877-726-7245.
