My parents bought us tickets to ride The Polar Express. That was our Christmas gift and it was a lot of fun. We drove to Hood River as soon as Brooklyn got out of school on Tuesday. The train ride was almost 2 hours. We read The Polar Express and had hot chocolate and cookies. We also got to sing Christmas carols. Then we finally got to The North Pole and saw Santa and his elves. They got on the train with us. The kids got to talk to Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas, except Jeremy wouldn't talk to him. Brooklyn helped Jeremy.
