Christmas Train and Christmas Craft

A couple of weekends ago we met the Richey's at the Christmas Train.  It is a train in our town that gives tours throughout the year but at Christmas, Santa comes to visit you while you are riding!


Westin loved looking at the train and all the activities going on before we boarded.


These characters came on and Westin wasn't too sure of them at first but then he sat by them and kept petting them and saying, "soft!"

They brought by a basket of candy and of course Westin picked out the sucker.

BFFs deep in conversation.  This was such a fun thing to do this time of year and will probably be something we do for many years to come.  It will probably only get more fun the older he gets.

At the beginning of December, our bunco group had a craft night.  I was in charge of the craft so we made these burlap ornament door hangers.  We used the same technique I did on our Hog door hanger HERE


It is a little wonky, off centered and far from perfect but I reason that you only see it from the street most of the time anyway.  :)
