Sometimes the best laid plans just don't always play out. Connie, Ray, Ken and I planned on bringing Kara and Emily to Saratoga to ride The Polar Express to the North Pole. (And yes, this is our second time this year. That's too long a story to tell.) Then good, old Nana had to get pneumonia, which means I got to stay home. Connie was great and sent pictures to my phone throughout the evening.
As you can see, the girls enjoyed their ride as much as the boys did. I may not have been on that train, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Look at the smile on Miss Em's sweet face. Then there is Kara doing the mouth thing she did as a baby when she was happy and shy at the same time.
I was not there physically. Yet I got to see the happiness my girls experienced on their way to the North Pole. It really is going to be a Merry Christmas.
Hugs and kisses,
