Last weekend we saw Elsa, so this weekend was the Holiday Express Train (also free :)). We headed to the Union Station and waited in the short line (I love being a member, but still a good 30-45 minutes wait) to see the train! We skipped the Santa line, and just saw the train! It was pretty cool! It was very decorated with cool Santa and train stuff. Cecilia and Josh had a hard time going from car to car, because it was high up and the floor was see through. I was carrying Samuel and trying to take pictures. (My left arm should be sore today, but it's not.) Then when you get to the end they give you a bag full of stuff! It had a coloring book, crayons, whistle, teddy bear, puzzle, small frisbee, candy cane, organic gummy bears, and a chocolate. After they were off, a guy handed them a light up whistle. My kids were super excited about all of their stuff! Then we went in and did Science City in about an hour, so we could make it to Christmas on time. There were lots of new exhibits, so it was super fun! We'll have to go again sometime this next couple weeks, so we can take our time!
We headed to Grammie's house and had a Christmas dinner, sang songs, made Gingerbread houses, opened presents, and read a Christmas story. Then Kira and I headed to Old Navy. They had coats on sale in store, and I had $20 in rewards from buying school clothes. So, I got Kira and Cecilia coats (neither one had a coat, but was borrowing one from someone else), Leah a pair of jeans-since she's now in a new size, and Kira a pair of fleece pants. All for under $32! I love Old Navy! Then we went to Walmart to buy presents with the gift card my mom gave us. Lots of shopping and I'm glad that's over! I really do like the homemade Christmas, even if I am exhausted!

I wanted proof that I had Samuel there too!
Cecilia loved the little bear everyone got!

Since Samuel was born in 2014...
I need one of these at home to power things!
My kids loved walking into the "cloud"
The duplication of us!
Josh wanted to play with this, but Cecilia took over, so he was helping her out. So sweet!
I made my kids go up to the top level to take pictures with the KC Skyline,
Leah's and Kira's houses
Emma's and Cecilia's houses, notice how Cecilia's is covered in candy. Yeah.
The spare house
He's ready to skydive!
His cousin kept loving on him. So sweet!
