Playing in the Snow!

The main reason for our trip was to see this guy....

We brought our "Polar Express" book and the kids wore their pjs for the train ride.

Andrew was so excited on the train. They served us hot chocolate and cookies.
We took the train to the North Pole. Santa got on the train and brought all the kids bells.

We had only planned on staying one night in Flagstaff, but the hotel sent us a deal for another night that we couldn't pass up. So we headed up to play in the snow for an extra day!

Andrew had a blast playing in the snow. The girls loved sledding. The weather the first two days we were there was in the low 40s. Not warm enough for all their snow to melt, but not cold enough to make things miserable.

The clouds started moving in the last morning. This was the view from our hotel room.

By the time we got to the sled-riding hill, it was snowing and blowing!

We didn't last as long sledding with the cold weather. The kids were cold and we had to drive home in the storm.

We got home without any problems. We saw quite a few cars in the medians...they don't salt the roads in Flagstaff. They put down cinder and people put chains on their tires.

This was a picture from the car as we were heading south on the highway.
