The Polar Express!

(Deployment story and more pictures to come! For now, here's what we are doing now!)

Last night we went to Newport, Rhode Island to ride the Polar Express. We did it last year and it's so fun I think we will do it every year that we live here.

This year we went with some of our friends from the boat. We love hanging out with them and it was so much fun to have them there with us. The kids loved coloring together and looking out the train windows, while the parents traded stories of the just past deployment. It was a great night.

This is the picture they take on the train.

J & I on the train. I love having him home!

Me and Bitsy! I love that little girl so much! Shes so cute and we always joke that shes going to marry Landon one day!

Santa came on the train! When he asked Landon what he wanted Landon replied with "A house" Hahaha. Santa's face is PRICELESS! He said he's never tried to bring a house down a chimney before but he will see what he can do.

The kids watching out the windows. waiting to get to the North Pole.

My little family!

We had such a great time and to J's delight, went to eat at cracker barrel for dinner! I love having him home and having a family social life again!
