*This is a repost. I first posted it last year and it was one of my favorites so I thought I'd share it again! Make sure you check out my Playlist too. There's lots of fabulous Christmas music there and if you have a Playlist of your own you may want to snag some songs for your own.
Have you ever heard of the Polar Express? It was originally a book written
by Chris Van Allsburg in 1985 before it hit the big screen and shot to fame
amongst all children at heart, young and old.
While laying in bed one night shortly before Christmas, a boy wonders if
Santa really exists. Then suddenly he hears something strange in the night.
Something that sounds like a train. He peeks out his window and to what
do his eyes appear...a big black steam train rolling smack dab down the
middle of the street. What does he do? He investigates, of course.
He ends up on the train full of other pajama clad children, skeptical of Santa
and therefor on their way to the North Pole to meet the one and only head
guy in charge, SANTA.
Two other children recently got the opportunity to ride the magical Polar
Express. Here Boo waits in anticipation. At nine years old, she's a bit
skeptical herself so she is about to take the perfect journey!
Boo, Man Cub, Mommy and Auntie Horse Dreams take their seats.
They're on their way to the North Pole!
Make sure you have your ticket so you can have it punched
(and they won't toss your tookus off).
Let's sing some songs!
Let's fuss and wiggle about impatiently!
Oh, what's that?
That's what I'm talking about...
(One of the Man Cubs obsessions!)
A cuddle for Sissy!
And a great BIG squeeze!
Finally, arrival at the North Pole and Santa! Only to be given the first gift
of the season, a magical bell that only rings for those that truly believe in
Yes, Santa really does exist! As Boo can attest.
The Man Cub was just too scared to meet him.
Soon Santa had to be off to deliver the presents so it was all aboooooard,
back on the train headed for home.
Do YOU believe in the magic of Santa?
It just makes life much more interesting and open to the possibilities when
